  • Olive Oil Pumpkin Bread puts a delicious twist on a classic pumpkin bread recipe. The super moist quick bread is made with honey and pumpkin puree, and where many recipes use plain vegetable oil, this one gets an extra dose of flavor from olive oil. Olive oil adds a fruity and complex note to the bread, so choose one that has a strong flavor you enjoy when tasting it plain. Mixing whole wheat and regular flour will give this bread an even more wholesome twist.
  • Halloween may be over, but the spooky name of these El Diablo Chocolate Truffles from Art of Dessert shouldn’t stop you from making them if you like your chocolate with a little spice. The truffles have a generous amount of cayenne pepper in them, which gives the chocolate a real kick when you eat them. The truffles should be coated in semisweet chocolate to give them a smooth finish. You can dust the with a little extra cayenne if you want to hint at what’s inside, or just leave the truffles plain to surprise anyone you serve them to.
  • No time to bake an apple pie? A batch of Apple Cinnamon Raisin Bars might just hit the spot, as Gimme Some Oven can testify. These easy to make bars are a treat. They are packed with juicy apples and sweet raisins, for a moist, chewy and satisfying bar. This is also a recipe where it is easy to make a few changes for simple variations, adding whole wheat flour or dried cranberries to change things up.
  • If you like lemon, you might want to consider trying My Custard Pie‘s Lemon Curd Buns with Creamy Lemon Icing the next time you’re looking for a breakfast treat. These buns are a twist on cinnamon buns, with rich lemon curd filling the yeasted dough. Lemon curd alone adds a lot of flavor, but fresh lemon juice and zest in the frosting and glaze takes them over the top.
