Cool air is here and I finally get to run my oven! I’m so excited to get some new baking recipes going this season. It is always fun to experiment and try new things. Lately I have been looking for pumpkin everything when it comes to cooking, so of course I have a pumpkin delight to share with you today.
One thing I wanted to add is how to make a flax egg. I’m sure an actual egg could be substituted, but to keep this recipe vegan, a flax egg is the next best thing. I make mine with flax seed that I have ground in my coffee grinder. Use 1T of ground flax, or flax meal, then add 2.5-3T of water. Stir it together into a slurry and put it in the fridge for at least 15 minutes. This allows it to set up and become more egg-like.
Also, feel free to mix half whole wheat flour and half white flour in case you do not have whole wheat pastry flour. I run my flour through a sifter to help the dough rise better while baking, and it helps to combine the two flours evenly.
How I made this recipe my own is by adding some pecans and chocolate chips. Everything is better with some chocolate! Furthermore, you could make your own icing to drizzle on top. I prefer mine icing free, but I do dip it in my coffee or tea. You should try it. I highly recommend it.
Let us know if you enjoyed this recipe or if you have any others that you would like to share with us. We both enjoy cooking and baking, so any opportunity to try a new recipe is great. Take care everyone and enjoy!
