    Pumpkin Loaf With Cinnamon Cream Cheese Icing is Perfect for Fall

    For October I decided to try something new and offer a seasonal loaf that will only be available for the month. To my surprise, it was an overwhelming success! I am still blown away by the support that I receive with my baking! When I was trying to come up with this recipe I made this loaf probably about six or seven times and I always felt that it was missing something. I wasn’t sure if I should add pumpkin seeds to it or pecans but nothing was seeming to be the right fit for it. Once I added the icing to it though I felt that it was perfect!…

    The Only Carrot Cake Recipe You’ll Need This Fall

With the weather turning colder and the leaves turning all the amazing autumn colours it is time to get into the Fall baking. This is the time of year when I tend to bake things that are more savoury. Where I make pumpkin pies, apple crisps, and of course carrot cake.

    Hummingbird Cake

    For some reason lately, I have been obsessed with Hummingbird Cake. I’m not sure if it is the banana and pineapple combination or what the deal is but I seem to want to make this for every occasion. Last weekend we went up and saw my parents, to check in on them and make sure they were doing well. With Mother’s Day being the following weekend and it being their 51st Wedding Anniversary we thought we should bring something up to celebrate with them. Of course, I made a Hummingbird Cake to take up! The original recipe is from Gonna Want Seconds blog, I made just a couple of minor…

    For some reason, some of my go-to recipes will be loaves or cookies. There is something about them that brings me comfort, and with what is going on in the world right now we need all the comfort that we can get.
