  • 2/3 cup brown sugar — light or dark
  • 1/4 cup honey — plus 2 tablespoons
  • 4 large eggs — at room temperature
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree — NOT pumpkin pie filling
  • one 1/8 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder — I recommend aluminum free
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice — or substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • just 1 cup white whole wheat flour

Pumpkin cake with cheese cream frosting 1

For Greek Yogurt Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 6 ounces 1/3 reduced-fat cream cheese — also called Neufchatel; do not use fat free
  • 3 tablespoons non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter — softened to room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 cups powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9×13-inch baking pan with parchment paper, then lightly coat with baking spray.
  2. In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or a large mixing bowl, beat together the oil, Greek yogurt, brown sugar, and honey until well blended and smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, incorporating between each. Beat in the pumpkin puree.
  3. Sprinkle the baking soda, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice over the top. Mix to combine. Then, sprinkle in the whole wheat flour and all purpose flour. By hand with a wooden spatula or spoon, stir the batter, just until the flour disappears.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, then with an offset spatula or spoon, smooth the top. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Place the cake on a wire pan to cool completely.
  5. To make the frosting: In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese, Greek yogurt, butter, vanilla extract, and salt at medium speed for 2 minutes, until fluffy and well combined. Reduce the mixer speed to low and gradually add the powdered sugar, increasing the speed to medium as you go. Beat for 1-2 minutes until well combined. Spread frosting evenly over top of cooled cake. Let the frosting set for 10 minutes (you can pop the cake into the refrigerator if you are in a hurry), then slice and serve.

And there you have it, the perfect Fall dessert at your fingertips! As for those cookie lovers, try our Brown Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies.

Brown Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies

Peanut butter blossom cookies

Brown Butter Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies – my kids love this simple recipe so much, that they want me to make it every Halloween. For Halloween I make sure to shape it not as blossom cookies, but in the form of cute little monsters (use chocolate chips and marshmallows for decoration).

Ingredients

  •  1/2 cup (1 stick) Extra Creamy Unsalted Butter
  •  half cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  •  1/2 cup white whole wheat flour or whole wheat pastry flour — or swap additional all-purpose flour
  •  half teaspoon baking soda
  •  1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  •  3/4 cup granulated sugar — divided (1/4 cup for the cookies, 1/2 cup for rolling)
  •  1/2 cup lightly packed dark brown sugar
  •  one large egg — at room temperature
  •  3/4 cup creamy peanut butter — I do not recommend the natural-style peanut butter made from only peanuts or peanuts and salt, as it is less predictable in baking
  •  1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  •  24 chocolate kiss candies — unwrapped (about half of an 11-ounce bag)

Peanut butter blossom cookies recipe

Instructions

  1. Set out a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. Heat the butter in a small, light-colored saucepan over medium low. This will take several minutes. Continue to heat until butter melts completely, foams and crackles, turns clear golden (the crackling will stop), then turns toasty brown, swirling the pan periodically. This entire process will take 3 to 5 minutes, depending upon your pan. Once the butter begins to smell lightly nutty, whisk it frequently, scraping up any browned bits from bottom. Watch the pan carefully in the last few minutes to ensure that the butter does not burn. As soon as the bits of butter in the bottom of the pan turn the color of a pecan, remove the butter from the heat and pour it immediately into the reserved mixing bowl to prevent the butter from burning. Let the butter cool to room temperature. IT MUST COOL before you add any other ingredients to it. If you like, you can speed this process along by putting the bowl in the refrigerator.
  2. While the butter cools, in a separate medium bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, white whole wheat flour, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Once the butter has cooled to room temperature, add 1/4 cup granulated sugar and the brown sugar. With a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, beat on medium-high speed until the mixture is well combined, about 1 full minute. Add the egg and beat again until combined, about 1 minute more, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Add the peanut butter and vanilla extract, then beat on medium-high speed until fully combined.

Phase II

  1. Sprinkle the dry ingredients into the bowl. Beat on low speed, just until the flour disappears. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for at least 4 hours or up to 3 days. (Overnight is recommended). Do not skip chilling the full time, as the butter needs to resolidify and the dry ingredients absorb the wet for the cookies to have the right texture and flavor.
  2. Remove the dough from the refrigerator. Let the dough rest at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes, or until it is soft enough to easily scoop and roll.
  3. Place the racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Place the remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar in a shallow dish or bowl. (A pie dish is perfect.)
  4. Once the dough has rested, portion it by 1 tablespoonfuls and roll it into dough balls. Roll each ball in the sugar and arrange on the baking sheet, leaving at least 1 1/2 inches between each. Bake in the upper and lower thirds of the oven for 12 minutes, or until the tops are barely beginning to crack. If your oven has hot spots or tends to bake a little unevenly, switch the pans’ positions halfway through. Remove the cookies from the oven and place the sheets on a wire cooling rack. Let cool on the sheet for 3 minutes.
  5. Press a chocolate kiss candy into the center of each cookie, then transfer the cookies from the baking sheet directly onto the wire rack. Let the cookies cool completely if you’d like the kiss to harden, or dive right in and enjoy the delicious, melty mess.
