We can't get enough pumpkin recipes this time of year, and these pumpkin-spice cupcakes are just one more reason to celebrate. Spiked with a good does of ginger (but not so much that they taste like gingerbread) and a hefty splash of orange juice for sweetness that isn't cloying, these treats are perfect for an autumn birthday or seasonal party.
The recipe combines two classic fall quick breads: pumpkin and gingerbread. It grabs the ginger and molasses from a classic gingerbread and adds just enough pumpkin for moistness without adding too much pumpkin flavor. Think of it as a really spicy variation of your favorite pumpkin bread.
Apple fritters should not be jelly doughnuts in which the jam is merely replaced with an apple filling. No, an apple fritter is a nubby affair with crisp bits of chopped apples scattered throughout and just the slightest hint of confectioner's glaze. Gluten-free fritters can be tough to make, but as it turns out, size matters. Our small fritters come out with the ideal ratio of crisp fried exterior to apple-packed crumb.
This chocolate bundt cake follows the inelegantly named "dump cake" method. You dump all the ingredients into one bowl, whisk, and you're done. Be sure to whisk the dry ingredients together before adding the coffee, oil, and eggs. This prevents clumping of the xanthan gum and tapioca starch. An optional chocolate or confectionary glaze finishes it off.
