[Recipe Share Sunday] Fall Favorites - Baked Goods

Something about Fall always gives me the baking bug... the bug continues into December when I go crazy with the Christmas cookies then I'm totally over it until the next Fall.

Yesterday I went a little crazy, baking Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins, Low Fat Zucchini Bread, and Apple Pecan Muffins.




I decided to go a bit crazy because my prego friend is laid up on bed rest.  I figured since she's been ordered out of the kitchen some baked goods would be a welcome change to whatever breakfast her husband has been serving her the last few weeks (and she still has a few more to go!).

Of course, I kept some for ourselves (husband's orders) and I'll probably give the 3rd bread away to a neighbor or bring it into work tomorrow.


The Apple Pecan Muffins were from a recipe I found last year here.  They are super easy to make and definitely have a nice fall flavor without being the usual pumpkin this or that.





I'll be back later tonight to show you what I decided to wear to the shower, have a great Sunday readers!

  2. I cheated with those, hehe... I used the boxed mix for pumpkin bread (pillsbury) and just used the muffin recipe and threw in chocolate chips bc they are awesome and make everything taste better :) the other muffins and bread are from scratch, so i'm total failure ;)

  4. Pumpkin chocolate chip muffins are my favorite. I was going to ask if you had a hard time finding canned pumpkin, but see you used a mix. There is a serious canned pumpkin shortage from last year's bad crop. It had to go to 4 different stores to find some.

  5. Janice, I did have a horrible time trying to find canned pumpkin for pumpkin cookies I never got to making... finally found some hidden on the shelf but took forever!
