Fall Season Recipes Part 1

So here's something I don't normally do and that's share recipes. I don't like someone else taking credit for something I do well so I hardly share my favorite recipes. I know, I'm selfish and stingy but when it comes to food, you're likely to get your head bit off. 

It's almost fall though; my favorite season and one of the best times of the year to eat great food! (We're only a couple months away from the ultimate gut busting day of the year) Fresh picked apples and the slimy guts of pumpkins are my two favorite ingredients besides sugar and chocolate, of course. So in light of the upcoming cooler weather, golden sun, harvested corn fields, and gorgeous red and orange leaves falling to our chilly toes, I suppose I'll share one of my ultimate favorite fall recipes. 

This recipe calls for looser pants and possibly a big stick to chase off any thieves.

  • Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cake


2 sticks of unsalted butter melted and cooled
2 1/2 cups of sugar
6 large eggs
2 cups of fresh or canned pumpkin puree
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
2 teaspoons of baking soda
2 teaspoons of baking powder
2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice 
1 teaspoon of salt
2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
2/3 cup of milk
2 1/2 cups of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and mist a 13x9 inch baking pan with cooking spray. Whisk together butter, sugar, eggs, pumpkin puree, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Stir in baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Stir in half of the flour, then, milk, then the remaining of the flour and stir until just combined. Do Not Overmix! Fold in chocolate chips.

Scrape the batter into a pan and smooth top with a rubber spatula. Bake 55-60 mins or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool on a wire rack then enjoy! 

Need a pumpkin pie spice recipe? It's super easy and I make quite a bit at once to keep in an air locked container for use all season long.
Pumpkin Pie Spice:

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do and I'd love to hear the outcome. Keep your eyes peeled for more great fall festive recipes!
