Maple Pumpkin Scones

These scones are soft and moist, with melding flavours of pumpkin, cinnamon, and maple. The maple glaze is the perfect amount of sweetness. I also learned you can make powdered sugar at home. Just whirl white sugar in a coffee grinder for 10 seconds, and you’ll get powdered sugar. Maple Pumpkin Scones Ingredients 2 cups […]

Vegan Carrot and Banana Muffins

For this post, I am grateful for the vegan blogging community I’ve met through this blog and how much I’ve learned about vegan cooking and baking since starting this blog. I’ve been so impressed by the amazing and delicious egg and dairy free recipes I’ve come across. I’m only starting to experiment with vegan baking, […]

Not to mention this pumpkin cake, and that pumpkin torte. My pumpkin contribution: this pumpkin gingerbread loaf. Cinnamon and ginger, with a subtle taste of molasses. With only […]

Healthy Banana Zucchini Bread

To “lighten up” this banana bread, I used whole wheat and white flour. It also has far less sugar and fat than many other recipes. Feel free to adapt this recipe to suit your tastes. I used chocolate chips and walnuts, but it would also be delicious with pecans and raisins or dates. The bread […]
