Baking with Pumpkin

Pumpkins are naturally sweet and lend themselves very well to baked goods. They help produce a moist end product, and the cooked pulp can be used to substitute some of the fat in a recipe.

Classic pumpkin baking, for me, has to be pumpkin pie, but I know a lot of people who recoil at the very idea. I think it is because they have not tried my mother's pumpkin pie.

Other ideas for baking with pumpkin include cakes, muffins, cupcakes, biscuits, pancakes.

We will be back later on this baking Saturday with a round up from the blogs of baking recipes using pumpkin.
