Caramel Pecan Pumpkin Bread / #PumpkinWeek

This Caramel Pecan Pumpkin Bread is my favorite pumpkin recipe. It is full of fall flavors like nutmeg, cinnamon, dark brown sugar, and of course, pumpkin. I added a caramel drizzle to the bread with some pecans and roasted pepitas to decorate the top of the loaf. This recipe is easy to make, and so much fun to eat. It is perfect for fall, snacks, picnics, or just because! You can also change the recipe to fit the likes and dislikes of your family. For example, omit the pecans and use chocolate chips instead! Drizzle the bread with chocolate instead of caramel, if you prefer. Also~my favorite way to eat this bread, is to spread a thin layer of softened cream cheese on a slice. It is the best! Keep reading down the page and you will find lots of delicious #PumpkinWeek recipes from fellow bloggers, and a printable recipe for my Caramel Pecan Pumpkin Bread!

Stuffed Pumpkin Cupcakes / #PumpkinWeek

These Stuffed Pumpkin Cupcakes are filled and decorated with a Penuche Frosting. If you have not had this frosting before, I think you will like it! It does tend to be on the sweet side, but the sweetness with the pumpkin is fantastic. My mother used to make this frosting when I was a little girl, and this recipe brought back some wonderful memories.

Pumpkin Spice Cake
(printable recipe at end of post)
(makes 2 dozen cupcakes)

2 cups Flour 
1 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon Ground Cloves
1/4 teaspoon Ground Ginger
1 cup Buttermilk 
1/2 cup canned Pumpkin
1/4 cup Butter
1/4 cup Shortening
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
2 Eggs


Frosting
1/2 cup Butter
1 cup packed Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Milk
3 1/2 cups Sifted Confectioner's Sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together the flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, baking soda, ground nutmeg, ground cloves, and ground ginger. Set aside.
 Add pumpkin to the milk and mix together. Set aside.
In a separate mixing bowl, mix together the butter and shortening. Add sugar and vanilla, and mix until combined. Add eggs, beating them in one at a time.  Start adding the pumpkin and milk mix to the mixing bowl, alternating with the flour. After each addition, mix just until combined.
Bake for 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pan and let them cool completely. 
Using a medium size saucepan, melt the butter. Add the sugar and mix in. Cook until the mix starts to bubble, then remove from the heat. Add the milk, mixing quickly.
Add the sifted confectioner's sugar, and mix all together. Set aside.
Use a hole plunger to make a hole in the center of each cupcake.
Spoon, or use a pastry bag, to place the frosting in to each cupcake hole. Make it level with the top of the cupcake.
Add the frosting on top and some sprinkles! Happy Fall!
