It’s Thanksgiving again in Canada and at this time of year pumpkin spice baked goods and drinks are found just about everywhere.
Pumpkin spice drinks can be costly but there is a simple solution. Cost effective pumpkin spice syrup is easy to make and when added to your drinks can give you the fall taste you love at a fraction of the cost.
It contains only 5 ingredients and can be stored for up to a week in the refrigerator. You can use fresh or canned pumpkin. Just make sure if you use the fresh version that the vegetable has been processed and is very smooth
Cost effective pumpkin spice syrup can also be used in baked goods. Try making a pumpkin muffin and infusing the centre with the filling after baking. You might have to thicken the recipe a bit more to do this.
You can use the syrup in many drinks. Try adding a tablespoon to your coffee or making a quick latte. I like heating almond or cashew milk and adding a tablespoon to the hot mixture.
If you like a stronger spice flavour simply add more of the syrup to your beverage.
Apple crumble muffins are tart and sweet at the same time. They have the best ingredients of the old fashioned apple crumble assembled in a muffin that can be taken anywhere. Enjoy with milk, coffee or tea.
Old fashioned bagels take some time to make but they’re worth the effort. They’re light and chewy and they’re wonderful with jam or your favourite buttery spread. Make a double batch and freeze some for when you need a quick snack.
1 tsp sugar
3/4 cup warm water
7 1/2 tsp regular yeast
Dissolve sugar in water in a large bowl. Place yeast on top of the water and let stand for 10 minutes. Stir.
At the end of the week there always seems to be one or two bananas that need to be used. A great way to use them is in Pecan Banana bread. It’s sweet and crunchy and can be eaten for breakfast or a sweet treat. Spread with your favourite fruit jam for added flavour.
Easy banana bread has many uses. Sliced with peanut butter and a few banana slices it makes a great breakfast. Use in bread pudding or toast cubes to make croutons for fruit salad. Don’t forget to have a slice on its own. It’s delicious!
There’s no reason to go to the local coffee shop for a muffin when you have this recipe. This muffins have the classic paring of lemon and cranberries together. They’re tangy yet sweet and are sure to tempt your taste buds.
Bright orange and white pumpkins are beginning to show their faces in the local stores. At this time of year I long for comfort food and this pumpkin bread recipe is sure to satisfy. Made with yogurt and Stevia it is healthier than most recipes.
Many people like their coffee to be flavoured. Pumpkin Spice creamer flavours coffee with a taste of the fall. Creamy pumpkin mixed with pumpkin pie spice makes this drink something to be enjoyed throughout the season. You might want to double the recipe as it goes fast.
Fall is here and the trees are beginning to turn colour. At this time of year the restaurant chains come out with everything pumpkin and I feel like baking some sweet treats. Pumpkin Spice muffins are warm and fragrant. They’re the perfect treat for a cold windy day. Enjoy them with butter or pumpkin butter.
