Food Pumpkin Spice Up Your Life

| Tuesday, 23 September 2014 12:00

Instagram feeds are currently being over run by pumpkin spice lattes. And while these drink posts might be slightly more enticing to us than the inevitable “look how cute my fall clothes are” posts, we think there are better pumpkin spice foods to drool over. And that no matter how hard people try, ponchos still aren’t a thing. Celebrate the season with these delicacies:

Pumpkin Custard Profiteroles with Maple Caramel 


In this recipe, pumpkin has a party with it’s best friends maple and walnut. These tasty treats masquerade as formal under the profiterole title and gluten free tag, but come on, these are meant to be juggled in to one’s mouth. 

Thanks a sage amalgam!

Kahlua Pumpkin Spice Fudge & Martini


This is a two for one link, friends. You’ll need something to wash down this sticky fudge, and we can’t think of a thing better than a martini. This is also two great excuses to buy out festive pumpkin spice Kahlua (like you needed one).

Thanks poet in the pantry!

Sichuan Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin Spice Latte Donuts


Okay, we admit that not all pumpkin spice latte things are bad. We’ve never really met a donut we didn’t like, after all.  It includes all the espresso and sugar you need for a great morning!

Stuff cream cheese in to anything, and it’s suddenly better. But when you have to thank folks in the Fall, these will make a perfect basket. 

Thanks friday cake night!

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream


Eating ice cream in cold weather is often disputed, but we like it ‘cuz it doesn’t melt as easily. It’s okay to curl up by the fire with this pumpkin spice ice cream!

Thanks giraffes can bake!

These swedish cinnamon buns are as fun to try to pronounce as they are to unbraid. Plus, they’ll make you look fancy if you share. That’s a big IF. 

Thanks la peche fraiche!

We know you’re already picking out a Halloween costume, and building up your backyard leaf piles for face planting in to. So don’t settle with pumpkin spice take out – get baking so your house can smell like the best of fall too.
