Here is a recipe that I've made a time or two this fall.
Pumpkin Spice Cake
2 c. mashed pumpkin
3/4 c. vegetable oil
2 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla
2 c. flour
2 t. soda
2 t. baking powder
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. ginger
1/4 t. each of cloves, nutmeg, allspice
Pour into a 9x13 pan and bake for 25-30 minutes at 350.
And then I like to frost with either a sugar crumble, or caramel frosting, which is:
1 stick of butter
1/4 c. milk
1 c. brown sugar
Mix together and heat until the sugar is dissolved. And DON'T let it boil (learned that the hard way one time).
Then take it off the heat and add 2 c. of powdered sugar, and beat in well. Let it set until it's cool (don't stir again), and then spread over your cake or cinnamon rolls or whatever.
So those are my fall recipes. Speaking of cinnamon rolls, I'm going to make myself hungry for some if I think about it too long. I suppose I should make a pan and send them to work with Clark sometime.
Today I read the book "Safely Home" by Randy Alcorn. And I've also been reading "He Chose The Nails" by Max Lucado. Both are very thought provoking reads.I'd post pictures of the little man's new look since his haircut, but I guess we haven't taken any yet. Hmm. Clark is coming home to figure out what and where the funny smell from the dryer is. I'm wondering if something somewhere didn't get a little too hot. Not a good feeling.
