The recipe is from Nestle (I'm not taking credit for it) and it was sooo good that I had to post it here for safe-keeping. It originally called for vegetable oil which I subbed with applesauce as I do with all my baked goods to cut calories and I tweaked a few other things. This is perfect to make when you have only a little bit of pumpkin left! A little goes a long way for this recipe. NOTE: I just modified this recipe because I made it again, and used 1 oz Baker's bittersweet choclate instead of cocoa powder. Came out so much better! Sweeter and creamier. I think adding 1 tbsp milk or cream will give it a nice lustre too.
My whole family loves Pumpkin Pie Crunch, which is a simple dessert that tastes like pumpkin pie with a buttery crumb topping. However, the fat and calories in the original version are deadly. In this lightened version, the fat and calories are basically cut in HALF, without much sacrafice in flavor.
Nov. 2011 note - I agree with the reviewer who felt the Corn Muffin mix might be too crunchy/savory, and her advice of using HALF a regular boxed cake mix is really good advice!
My friend Dawn sent me this recipe to try, and I did... It's like a pumpkiny custard on the bottom and crumb topping on top, and loaded with nuts. It's just plain WONDERFUL! Great anytime, but also for the holidays, and a lot easier and quicker than making a pie :D I made this for the Cake-A-Thon to honor Chef-I-Am October 2007. I know she would have loved this cake :) Here's to you Tina!
This was posted in response to a recipe request for someone on a soft food diet. I love pumpkin and I love milkshakes, so this is a great combination. Feel free to use regular vanilla ice cream & milk if you aren't watching calories, but the low fat version is great.
What do you do when you need a holiday dessert and you need it fast? You whip up a moist delicious cake! This is wounderful and you're guests are sure to love this. You can serve ala mode with a dallop of whipped cream.
These little beauties are a beautiful color and will keep you full for hours after eating just one serving. I needed to use up extra canned pumpkin and thought I'd give it a try. - I got it out of the Martha Stewart Living magazine
As fall is fast approaching I have been digging through my recipes for things of a fall and winter nature. This is a good one! I have never had it fail and it always tastes wonderful. I believe this came from NESTLE's site
I used to make this for a Bread and Breakfast Inn in Highlands, N.C. This is a variation on my Sour Cream Banana Bread, which turned out to be a duplicate recipe here on Zaar. So, in loving memory of my dear banana bread, here is one of the variations! You will love this! You may use flavored yogurt to kick this up a notch! Try vanilla! This also makes a great gift!
