What to Bake This Fall!

5 Flavorful Recipes

Fall is the time for pumpkin spice and everything nice, but what are the top recipes for pumpkin lovers? These sweet treats are must-tries for the chilly season—or around 65 degrees for Floridians.

1. Classic Pumpkin Bread

In my house, pumpkin bread is a staple we make every fall to welcome the new season. Again and again, we use the recipe down below for bread that is chewy yet crispy around the edges. It’s perfectly sweet enough for dessert or a fun breakfast in the mornings. Add in chocolate chips, nuts, or frosting to customize the bread to your liking. In my house, there is always a huge debate about whether to mix in chocolate chips or go without. For me, this is what I look forward to making every year, and is one of my favorite traditions. Recipe here.

2. Taylor Swift Chai Cookies

For any Swifties out there, these chai cookies are perfect for cuddling up and listening to Folklore, Red, or Evermore, 3 of Taylor Swift’s most autumn-themed albums. Additionally, these cookies have the ultimate chai flavor and are simple and easy to make. Chai tea with some of these cookies will really make you feel like the queen Taylor Swift herself. Recipe here.

3. Pumpkin Oreo Balls

These pumpkin Oreo balls are so cute and tasty! They can be made for many different occasions such as Halloween and fall! This is another recipe my family makes every year since they are so pleasing to the eye and mouth. They are made with only 5 ingredients and can be made with pumpkin Oreos! The recipe down below uses chocolate Oreos, however, it just depends on your preference! Recipe here.

4. Pumpkin Shaped Cinnamon Buns

This is the most creative treat yet! The recipe recommends baking twine to shape the pumpkin dough, mimicking the pumpkin figure. Stick a cinnamon stick in the middle of the dough and there you have it! Also, the link down below has a couple of different recipes depending on the amount of work you want to do. These pumpkin cinnamon buns are the cutest dessert and need to be made this season. Recipe here.

5. Apple Cider Donuts

Making these apple cider donuts seems like a bit of a challenge. However, once they are made you will be forever grateful because these donuts are so cakey and taste like you bought them from a bakery! Especially if you are sick of pumpkin flavors, this recipe is for you. Apple cider is not on the usual grocery store list but fall is the perfect time to start. These donuts are a must-try this year. Recipe here.
