A simple craving for pumpkin cream cheese. What to spread it on… pumpkin loaf cake.
I’ve been craving pumpkin cream cheese for the past two weeks. There is a bagel shop a few towns north of mine that used to make pumpkin bagels and pumpkin cream cheese. I haven’t been there in awhile and I’ve been resisting the urge to get a bagel. However, I did have some cream cheese leftover from a recent recipe and a can of pumpkin in my pantry. I was going to bake an autumn loaf or make pumpkin-walnut flapjacks, both I have made before, but I wanted something more like a pumpkin bread.
Yes, I have more sheet pan recipes! This one, Sheet-Pan Chocolate Chip Pancakes, appeared in The New York Times Cooking Supplement “Sheet-Pan Everything,” February 28, 2021. The recipe is by Jerrelle Guy and the premise of her recipe is akin to making biscuits. Cold butter is cut into the flour before adding both buttermilk and milk. Also, there’s no egg in this batter. The cold butter creates steams, along with the baking powder and baking soda, create a lighter product.
