Fall is a time to enjoy the changing leaves, watch football, give thanks, and savor the fruits of the autumn harvest. But for many, it’s also the season of pumpkin spice! Thankfully, there are countless ways to enjoy this beloved flavor...
Here are 5 pumpkin spice recipes you can make to satisfy your cravings from the comfort of home.
Pumpkin Spice Waffles
Warm up a chilly fall morning with this five-star Pumpkin Spice Waffle recipe. It uses only 2 bowls and classic ingredients you probably already have—plus, of course, pumpkin! Hamrick’s offers Dash Waffle Makers and a variety of mixing bowls that will help cook your waffles to just the right crispiness.
Pro tip: Be sure to use canned pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling—here’s the difference!
Need a gluten-free option?
Instead of wheat, this recipe uses oat flour. Don’t worry if you don’t have oat flour or even know what that is. The author explains how you can easily blend regular oats in your blender or food processor, and voila! You’ve got your gluten-free flour for a tasty pumpkin spice breakfast!
Pumpkin Spice Cake
For an autumn-themed dessert option, you can bake this highly-reviewed Pumpkin Cake. Since it uses a whopping 2 cups of pumpkin puree, your finished cake should be moist and loaded with harvest flavor. The recipe also includes a simple cream cheese frosting to complement the pumpkin.
To bake your cake, Hamrick’s offers regular and bundt cake pans to choose from, so be sure to browse one of our stores before getting started.
Pumpkin Spice Cookies
If you’d prefer to get your pumpkin-spice fix via cookies instead of cake (or both!), why not try these Pumpkin Cookies with Cinnamon Cream Cheese frosting? With these, you can still enjoy the decadence of frosting—and you can customize by adding nuts or choosing brown sugar cream cheese frosting or caramel frosting.
For cookie sheets and many other essential baking utensils, check out your local Hamrick’s store to help you achieve the perfect fall cookies.
Short on time?
For the easiest possible recipe, try this one that uses simply a store-bought spice cake mix with a can of solid-pack pumpkin (aka pumpkin puree).
Spiced Pumpkin Soup
Pumpkin spice goodies need not be limited to sweets. If you’d like to try a savory dish that includes even more harvest flavors, you might enjoy this Spiced Pumpkin, Carrot & Sweet Potato Soup.
This recipe includes stove-top and slow-cooking options, so be sure to shop our aisles for items like Lodge cast iron pots or the Brentwood slow cooker before you get started.
Terminology tip: As you finish, you’ll be blending the soup—what the British author calls “blitzing.” Hamrick’s offers hand/immersion blenders to make this easy—and no need to wash a bulky traditional blender later!
Pumpkin Spice Latte
No pumpkin spice bucket list is complete without the pumpkin spice latte. And you don’t have to pay coffee-shop prices or leave home to enjoy it.
This easy recipe uses regular-brewed coffee, calls for only 5 ingredients, and has no refined sugar. How’s that for a sweet way to warm up this Fall?
For the prep, Hamrick’s has got you covered: check out our coffee makers and other handy kitchen utensils to make that latte scrumptious.
