Mr.CBB’s Pumpkin Spice Pound Cake With Brown Butter Buttercream

Pumpkin was not something I grew up with in the UK as my mum never really served pumpkin pie or pumpkin anything for that matter. It wasn’t until I moved to Canada and my mother-in-law served me pumpkin cheesecake that I was first time I was introduced to the unique flavour in a dessert. Over the years I tasted pumpkin pie, pumpkin scones,pumpkin cookies, pumpkin cheesecake and pumpkin bars all of which tempted me to create my pumpkin spice pound cake recipe this Fall. When the leaves begin to fall and the colours turn there’s something special about the Fall scenery, big bright orange pumpkins and warm Fall spices fill the air. We not only decorate the front of our house with pumpkins and corn stalks we now aim to create our own tradition for the season using this gourd-like squash better known as winter squash.

Cranberry Orange Bread in a Bundt Pan- Cost $5

While searching Facebook I came across this recipe on the Quaker Canada Facebook page and wanted to give it a go. We have this huge bag of Whole Wheat Flour in the basement that needed to get used up. I made a couple of adjustments to the recipe as we baked it in a bundt pan instead of the loaf pan. I also tossed in a half cup of chocolate chips (cause I’m sneaky that way) but that is optional. The bread we made in the bundt pan baked for 40 mins at 350 degrees. In the end the bread is simply amazing, get ready for your home to smell of oranges in every room. It sends a warm feeling down your spine when the aroma engulfs you. I estimated this bread cost us around $5.00 to make and will serve 12 people. Thanks Quaker Canada for an easy, yummy recipe! Changes to the original recipe I made as we baked it in the bundt pan. Everything else in the recipe we followed exactly. I adjusted All Purpose Flour to I cup I added 1/2 cup chocolate chips I adjusted the milk to  1 1/4 cup of milk I adjusted the […]
