Make it Monday - Pumpkin and Apple
Two of the above recipes were a huge hit and one of them hit the garbage can after one bite.
So which one went in the garbage? The Apple Cake . It sounded so good and the photo on the blog looked great but when I made it, there was nothing great about it. It was very dense, dry, and tasteless. Plus the "frosting" never set up and was just a gooey mess. Ironically, as I was making it, I remembered making a similar cake a year ago with the same outcome. No more apple cakes for me ;-)
Now, on the other end of the spectrum, the Pumpkin Cheesecake Muffins were fabulous. I made them into 12 regular size muffins instead of mini-muffins and they were fabulous. That is a recipe I'll make again without a doubt!
Finally, coming in at a close second to the muffins was the Pumpkin Bread. Darryl said it was the best he ever tasted. I thought it was great bread but wasn't quite as "pumpkiny" as I was expecting.
