There is nothing I don’t love about fall. Pumpkin everything. Last week we enjoyed a pumpkin walnut cranberry loaf. This week it’s brown butter pumpkin cupcakes. How did I know these would be such a slam dunk with my husband, you ask? Well I didn’t–but when I handed him a beater, and then he followed me back to the kitchen to clean the bowl, and then turn my icing bag inside out to clean.. well I knew we had a winner. The recipe for these Brown Butter Pumpkin Cupcakes, originally Fine Cooking’s Layer Cake, can be found here.
Besides baking we had a great time in Chattanooga this weekend. Any excuse for a roadtrip to see the leaves changing color across Tennessee. It really is the most beautiful time of year here. We did a little hiking, took in the downtown food scene, fell in love with the art district, reminded me of Seattle–and on the way back I saw my first cotton field! I thought the cotton was really cool. Grant.. not so impressed, but he still pulled over so I could photograph it (and pull some off to pay with).
I hope you had a great weekend. Anything fun, exciting, or delicious to report?? Do tell!
