As you may be able to tell from the photo, I made these cupcakes a few weeks ago. It doesn’t look quite that green or pretty in Pittsburgh anymore.
I used this recipe from Eat, Live, Run. A perfect fall treat. Lightly spiced cake and cream cheese frosting. I took these to a birthday party gathering and while I saw a few people digging in, I would guess the sugary cupcakes tasted even better as breakfast the morning after the (drinking) festivities. There is absolutely nothing wrong with cake for breakfast, in my opinion.
I also made these pumpkin brownies last weekend. I am always unsure of the pumpkin/chocolate combination but I really liked these. I added a little extra cocoa to the brownie portion of the batter and did not attempt any type of swirling of the two batters. I simply dumped the chocolate in first and the pumpkin on top. I sprinkled some mini chocolate chips and extra walnuts on top halfway through baking. My boyfriend crushed about half the pan in a 3 day span and my Monday night Dancing with the Stars crew (hello there!) finished off the rest.
What is your favorite fall treat?
