Pumpkin Mini Cakes

All you have to do is step inside any store and you will immediately find that it is Pumpkin Spice season everywhere!  Now don’t get me wrong, I am a full blow Pumpkin Spice Latte addict.  I get one almost, almost, everyday.  My day revolves around  getting my Pumpkin Spice fix.  But, Pumpkin Spice cough drops….uhm….not today….not ever.

I have this gorgeous fall pumpkin pan from Williams and Sonoma that was urgently needing to bake some bread.  I have never ‘baked bread from a bag’, but this mix was sooooo good!  Don’t hestitate to try Williams Sonoma bread mixes.  They are delicious!

I want you to notice how clean the pan is, easy peasy clean up!

This pan is a work of art. It should be hanging on a wall.
The bread just popped out of the pan as clean as a whistle!
Don’t you love the way the caramel layer is in the center?!

After I baked this bread loaf, I was on to Pumpkin Mini Cakes.  

In a large bowl, I mixed orange zest, eggs, sugar, pumpkin, vanilla all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice together.  

I love one-bowl baking!

You can also bake this in a !0-inch bundt pan.  I just think the mini bundts are so cute!

The recipe is easy, really easy, these come together in minutes.  They are also gone within minutes!

Now, I have to leave to go get my pumpkin spice latte fix so I can eat my mini bundt cake!

Love ya,
