Pumpkin flavored treats have gotten a bad rap in recent years. I blame social media! Someone bashed pumpkin spice lattes and everyone jumped on board.
Prior to then, we ate our pumpkin pie with an entire tub of whipped cream and life was good. If you didn’t care for pumpkin pie, you politely turned it down.
My goal is to persuade you to give pumpkin another chance. It's so good, the least we can do is try a new pumpkin muffin or cake recipe this season.
Without further ado, here are our 17 favorite recipes using pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice and everything nice this season!
Pumpkin Seven Layer Bundt Cake Recipe
I like big Bundts and I cannot lie. You other bakers can’t deny. When pumpkin walks in with cinnamon-y taste and a round cake in your face, you get hung-ry. Hahaha! My budding rap career aside, this pumpkin seven layer bundt cake recipe has it all. Rich chocolate, crunchy walnuts, delicious pumpkin puree, and sweet coconut. Yum! Plus I love how simple a bundt cake is to make.
Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies Recipe
There might be something seriously wrong with your tastebuds if you don’t find this pumpkin cheesecake brownies recipe irresistible. Rich, chocolate brownies are swirled with a sweet pumpkin cheesecake topping - come on! One bite and you’ll be hooked. As with any good brownies, you know the corner is the best piece of the tray. They're chewy, fudgy and delicious.
Easy Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Cake Recipe
I’m no baker by any means, so take my word for it that this gluten free pumpkin spice cake recipe is incredibly easy to make. If you can measure and mix, you’re all set. You’d never even know that this sweet, seasonal dessert is gluten free, and I think it's incredible that everyone can enjoy the very best recipes with pumpkin puree all season long.
Miguelitos with Pumpkin Cream Recipe
Recently I learned what miguelitos are! They’re a Spanish dessert traditionally made with chocolate sandwiched between layers of puff pastry. In true pumpkin season fashion, this recipe swaps out the chocolate for a creamy pumpkin filling. Our miguelitos with pumpkin cream are quick and simple to make, but add an elegant touch to any dessert spread.
Pumpkin Coffee Cake Recipe
What’s not to love about dense coffee cake with a crunchy crumble topping, and flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar?! Our pumpkin coffee cake recipe is a delightful treat that pairs perfectly with coffee, of course, so you can easily serve it for breakfast or at brunch. It's also sweet and special enough to call this coffee cake dessert. Don't mind if I do!
Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie Recipe
Of course we’re going to include a pumpkin pie recipe when talking about our favorite recipes with pumpkin puree. This one comes with a slight twist. By switching out the traditional crust for a gluten free crust, everyone can enjoy without worrying if they’ll feel sick later on. I bet you can’t tell the difference from a regular crust, especially when paired with creamy pumpkin pie filling.
