Pumpkins Pumpkins everywhere! Isn’t it grand? In fact, if I’m not careful, I will be able to trick or treat as a pumpkin without putting on a costume. Fall is just the best time of the year. Moods change from wanting to find the nearest pool to wanting to bake. Actually, that is not a true statement for me at all. Because I would be the last person anyone would choose to see in a bathing suit, my comfort zone is always the kitchen. But, if I were rich and could afford an island where NO ONE lived or could see, I would love to swim. So I guess because Moo Moos are my costume of choice (and necessity) I love Fall and baking and eating all the great pumpkin recipes which are posted everywhere. I have never made this, but it sounds delicious, so I just printed it up. Taken from Lauren’s Latest on Pinterest, I think it will be one recipe that I will “fall” in love with.
1 cup plus 3 tables flour
2 teas baking powder
1/2 teas salt
3/4 cup sugar
1 teas cinnamon
1/2 teas nutmeg
1/2 teas cloves
1/2 cup of canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter
1 1/2 teas vanilla
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1 1/2 cups very hot water
Directions (be sure to read all directions before baking!
Preheat oven to 350.
In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and spices. Set aside.
In a smaller bowl, stir pumpkin, milk, melted butter and vanilla together to mix.
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix to create a thick batter. Pour into a small 8″ lightly greased casserole dish with high sides. (Place baking dish on a baking sheet in case it bubbles over.)
For topping, in a separate bowl, stir sugar, brown sugar and pecans together. Spread over the top of the batter evenly. Pour hot water over the entire thing. DO NOT STIR! Bake for 40 min or until middle of cobbler is set.
Serve while still warm with more toasted pecans if desired and vanilla ice cream. Of course, I don’t need to tell you that the ice cream needs to be Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla, right?
