1. Pumpkin Cake

Add this to your Autumn pumpkin recipes collection. This dessert comes from Delish. It serves 12, and takes about 1 hour and 45 minutes to make.

Cake Ingredients:

Cooking Spray 

2 cups of all-purpose flour 

2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon 

1 teaspoon of kosher salt 

1 teaspoon of baking powder 

½ teaspoon of baking soda 

¼ teaspoon of ground ginger 

¼ teaspoon of ground nutmeg 

1 stick of butter 

1 cup of packed brown sugar 

½ cup of granulated sugar 

4 large eggs 

1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract 

15oz can of pumpkin purée 

Frosting Ingredients:

8oz block of softened cream cheese 

4 tablespoons of softened butter 

2 cups of powdered sugar 

1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract 

Pinch of salt 

Crushed ginger snaps 

The first step is to preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Next, you’re going line a 9”x13” baking pan with parchment and grease it with cooking spray. In a medium bowl whisk flour, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, and ginger.

For the next step you’re going to need a large bowl and a mixer. In the bowl, use the mixer to beat the butter and sugar together until it is light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each one. Add vanilla and pumpkin purée and beat until it’s evenly mixed. Add the dry ingredients from the previous step and evenly mix it in.

For the third step, pour the batter into the baking pan and smooth over the top. Bake for thirty minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Take the pan out of the oven and let it cool.

While the cake is cooling, start making the frosting. In a large bowl, use a hand mixer to beat the cream cheese and butter together until it’s smooth. Add powdered sugar and mix until there are no lumps. Then add in the vanilla and a pinch of salt.

Now that the cake is cooled, lift it out of the pan and place it on a serving platter. Frost the cake and then sprinkle the crushed ginger snaps on top.

2. Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

You’re going to want to add this sweet treat to your Autumn pumpkin recipes collection. This treat comes from the Food Network. It serves 24 people and takes about 3 hours to make.

Dough Ingredients:

1 ½ cups of whole milk 

½ cup of vegetable oil 

½ cup of granulated sugar 

1 package of active dry yeast 

1 cup of pumpkin purée 

4 ½ cups of all-purpose flour 

½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon 

¼ teaspoon of ground ginger 

¼ teaspoon of ground nutmeg 

½ teaspoon of baking powder 

½ teaspoon of salt 

Melted butter for the pan

Filling Ingredients:

1 stick of melted butter 

½ cup of brown sugar 

½ cup of granulated sugar 

½ teaspoon of cinnamon 

½ teaspoon of ground ginger 

¼ teaspoon of ground nutmeg 

1 cup of finely chopped pecans

Frosting Ingredients:

8oz of softened cream cheese 

2 cups of powdered sugar 

¼ cup of whole milk 

2 tablespoons of melted butter 

Dash of salt 

The first step is to make the dough. In a large saucepan, add in the milk, vegetable oil, and granulated sugar. Heat until it is a hot liquid, but not boiling. Remove the saucepan from the stove and let it cool until it is warm, but not too hot. Sprinkle the yeast over the surface of the liquid and let it sit for 5 minutes.

Afterwards, stir in the pumpkin purée until it is evenly mixed. 

In a separate bowl, mix 4 cups of the flour with cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. Sprinkle it into the saucepan and stir until evenly mixed. Cover the saucepan with a dish towel and set it in a warm, draft free place for 1 hour.

Your dough should now be big and puffy. Stir in the baking powder, baking soda, salt, and ½ cup of flour until it’s evenly mixed.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Get 3 pie pans and smear the bottom and sides with melted butter.

Turn out the dough onto a floured surface and press it into a rectangular shape. If the dough is still sticky, sprinkle on some flour. Flour a rolling pin and roll the dough into a large rectangle about 18”x24”.

For the filling, drizzle the melted butter over the dough and spread it over the entire surface. In a medium bowl, mix the brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Sprinkle this over the entire surface of the dough. Sprinkle ½ cup to ¾ cup of chopped pecans.

Starting from the top, tightly roll the dough toward you into a large log, moving back and forth down the line of dough in a typewriter motion. When you’re done pinch the seam closed and turn the roll, so that the seam is facing down. Slice into ½ to ¾ inch slices, then place the slices in the buttered pan. Allow to rise for 20 minutes. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until the rolls are golden brown around the edges.

While the rolls are baking, start making the frosting. In a bowl, use a hand mixer to stir the cream cheese, powdered sugar, milk, butter, and salt until it’s fluffy. You can add more milk for a thinner frosting. Frost the rolls once they get out the oven, sprinkle the extra pecans over the frosting. Let it sit 15 minutes before serving.

 I love cheesecake, so this will be the first one in my Autumn pumpkin recipes collection.

6. Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Another one of the Autumn pumpkin recipes for your collection comes from Sally’s Baking Addiction. It makes 30 cookies and takes about 30  minutes.

Ingredients:

½ cup of granulated sugar 

1 egg yolk 

¾ pumpkin purée 

2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract 

1 ½ cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips 

The first step is to preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Next, line the baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and oats, then set aside. These are your dry ingredients.

In another large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, maple syrup, brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg yolk, pumpkin purée, and vanilla extract. Pour in the dry ingredients from earlier and evenly mix it. After it is evenly mixed, fold in the chocolate chips.

Scoop out 1.5 tablespoons of dough per cookie, and place them 3 inches apart on the baking sheet. Slightly flatten them and bake for 12-13 minutes or until they’re slightly brown on the edges. The centers will look soft.

Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely, then serve.

You have to add this to your Autumn pumpkin recipes collection for the next you want a sweet treat.

7. Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Another one of the Autumn pumpkin recipes comes from The Girl Who Ate Everything. This recipe makes 24 muffins and takes about 40 minutes.

Filling Ingredients:

8oz softened cream cheese 

1 cup of powdered sugar

Muffin Ingredients:

3 cups of all-purpose flour 

1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon 

1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg 

1 teaspoon of ground cloves 

1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice 

1 teaspoon of salt 

1 teaspoon of baking soda 

4 large eggs 

2 cups of granulated sugar 

2 cups of pumpkin purée

1 ¼ cups of vegetable oil

Topping Ingredients:

½ cup of granulated sugar 

5 tablespoons of flour 

1 ½ teaspoons of ground cinnamon 

4 tablespoons of cold unsalted butter cut into pieces

To make the filling, evenly mix the cream cheese and granulated sugar in a medium bowl. Place it in the freezer while you make the batter. Don’t let it freeze, just let it get firm.

To make the muffins, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line the muffin pans with paper liners. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and baking soda. These will be your dry ingredients. In another bowl, use a hand mixer to blend the eggs, granulated sugar, pumpkin purée, and vegetable oil. Add in the dry ingredients and blend until evenly mixed.

To make the topping, whisk together the granulated sugar, flour, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Add in the butter pieces and cut into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender or two forks until the mixture is coarse and crumbly. Place in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use it.

To assemble the muffins, fill each muffin cup with a small amount of batter, just enough to cover the bottom of the liner. This will be about 1-2 tablespoons. Place a scoop of cream cheese in each muffin cup, but put it lower than you think it should be because it will rise during the baking process. Pour the remaining batter in each of the muffin cups covering the cream cheese completely. Sprinkle a small amount of the topping over each of the muffin cups. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Let them cool on a wire rack then serve.

This needs to be in your Autumn pumpkin recipes collection. I’ll definitely be adding it to mine.

For the scones, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. In a food processor, pulse together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Add butter and pulse mixture several times to cut the butter into the mixture. Pour the mixture into a large bowl and create a well in the center.

In a bowl, whisk together the chilled pumpkin purée, buttermilk, egg, vanilla extract, and honey. Pour the mixture into the well you made in the previous step.

Bake for 13-15 minutes until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack and cool for 10 minutes before glazing.

For the glaze, whisk together the powdered sugar and half and half in a bowl. Add more half and half as needed. Use a spoon to evenly spread the glaze over the scones. Let the glaze set at room temperature.

For the pumpkin icing, whisk together powdered sugar, pumpkin purée, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and half and half in a bowl. Transfer mixture to a small Ziploc bag, seal the bag, cut a small tip from the corner and drizzle the icing over the top of the scones. Allow the icing to set, then serve.
