Pumpkin BreadBy Ginny's TeamWe love banana bread and zucchini bread, but fall will always belong to warm, cinnamon-accented homemade pumpkin bread. If you have some fresh pumpkin, we encourage replacing the canned vegetable with the real thing. Feel free to add half a cup of raisins if you have some lying around, but we've found that this homemade pumpkin bread tastes just as delicious without them. You can also take out the nuts to make this recipe even simpler!
Pumpkin Cornbread MuffinsBy Ginny's TeamMeet your new favorite breakfast food: pumpkin cornbread muffins. In this recipe, the spices really bring out the flavor of the pumpkin. Be generous with the cinnamon and nutmeg! We love the homespun texture of the cornbread combined with the warm, seasonal flavor of the pumpkin puree. These pumpkin cornbread muffins are a delicious pairing with your morning coffee, or a great morning-after-Thanksgiving breakfast for the family.
Pumpkin PancakesBy Ginny's TeamUpgrade your fall breakfast with the best homemade pumpkin pancake recipe we could find. With only ten ingredients and a whole lot of pumpkin, these homemade pumpkin pancakes are the perfect way to ring in the autumn season. Pancakes can be made in a pan on the stove, but we recommend using a nonstick griddle that makes it easier to cook more pancakes at once.
Simple Pumpkin CheesecakeBy Ginny's TeamWhile pumpkin pie will always be one of our favorites, we've recently fallen in love with this simple pumpkin cheesecake. Creamy cheesecake and cozy pumpkin flavors make this the ultimate comfort food dessert. Since most of the time is hands-off, it only takes about 20 minutes of hands-on prep time. You can save time time by using a pre-made pie crust. If you have an extra fifteen minutes, though, a homemade graham cracker crust is always worth it!

If you're lucky enough to have a pecan tree near your home, we recommend using fresh pecans for the top half of this pie. This is a perfect, low-stress dessert to have at Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone will be begging for this pecan pumpkin pie recipe!
