Start off fall with seasonal recipes

Scarlett Bolt

September is here, and there’s no better way to get into the fall spirit than baking delicious seasonal treats. From pumpkin pancakes to apple cider donuts, fall baking is a great way to get creative with new recipes and signature fall flavors.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

When you think of fall, the first thing on your mind is pumpkin, and these delicious, thick, buttery and fluffy pumpkin pancakes are perfect for celebrating the season as a cozy morning treat.

Cooking Instructions:

Stir 1 large egg, 1 cup of pumpkin puree,  2 tablespoons of vegetable oil, 2 tablespoons of vinegar and 1 ½ cups of milk together into a bowl until well stirred. In a separate bowl whisk 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 3 tablespoons of brown sugar, 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of ground allspice, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, ½ teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon of ground ginger. Once completed, add to the pumpkin mixture and whisk until blended smoothly.

Use cooking spray, spray a frying pan or griddle and heat over medium-high heat. Pour 3-4 tablespoons worth of batter per pancake on the griddle/frying pan and flatten slightly using a spoon or spatula. Cook until small bubbles for 2 minutes. Then flip and proceed to cook until golden brown for 2 more minutes. Using the remaining batter, repeat the recipe.

Apple Cider Donuts

Cook Time: Under 1 hour

A warm, aromatic and chewy pastry both savory and sweet, these crumbly donuts have a delicious fizzy apple cider mixture that explodes on your tongue, making them a fall recipe to remember.

Cooking Instructions:

First, reduce 1 ½ of apple cider in a small saucepan. Use low heat and simmer the apple cider until you are left with ½ cup. At 10 minutes check the cider and continue checking every 3-5 minutes. Set aside the saucepan to cool for 10 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Whisk 2 cups of leveled all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, ¾ teaspoons of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of apple pie spice, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and ¼ teaspoon of salt in a large bowl. Then mix 1 large egg, 2 tablespoons unsalted melted butter, ½ cup packed brown sugar, ½ cup granulated sugar, ½ cup milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract together in a separate bowl. Then pour the dry ingredients and reduced apple cider and whisk until blended and smooth.

Transfer the batter by spoon into a large zipped bag, and cut a corner off the bottom. Pipe the batter about halfway into a donut cup sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 10-11 minutes until the sides and tops are lightly browned. Cool donuts for two minutes before transferring to a wired rack.  Re-grease the pan and repeat!

Whisk ¾ teaspoon apple pie spice, ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon and 1 cup granulated sugar together in a bowl. Dip the two sides of the donuts softly in 6 tablespoons of unmelted butter and then into the apple spice mix.

Cooking Instructions:

Start by brewing ½ cup of your coffee of choice. Then froth ¾ cup milk using a milk frother or handheld frother. If you do not own a frother machine, microwave the milk in a jar for a minute and shake until frothed. Then, pour 2 tablespoons of maple syrup into your mug and add the coffee, ¼ teaspoons vanilla extract, and frothed milk. Sprinkle cinnamon on top or add vanilla whipped cream.
