Taryn( Joy filled Eats) has this awesome pumpkin dump cake recipe that I have been wanting to try, but since I made Nana’s Little KitchenPumpkin Syrup yesterday I did not have a enough pumpkin. actually made a double batch of pumpkin syrup which left me with only 1/2 can of pumpkin pack. Not quite enough to make the dump cake… dilemmas
Ah… light bulb.. I just made apple butter (recipe here)
(well actually pear butter) that is THM friendly. It has a lot of yummy fall cinnamon spice like pumpkin pie.
Well i poured the pear butter into the can and topped it off.
Now I have a whole can 1/2 pumpkin pack 1/2 pear butter.
So I thought I will sub 3/4 cup coconut milk for the almond milk and cream. ( I am trying to conserve my almond milk, I go through alot of it and I had extra coconut milk)I really like coconut milk ,so it is worth a shot.
Working along I realize that I did NOT follow directions. (I was blissfully distracted by audio correspondence class.)
I dumped everything in together and not in layers as Taryn clearly instructed. I am getting a little concerned at this point that it might not rise well with the goof, so I added a tsp of baking powder.
The smell in the house is magical! I think I like Taryn even more than I di prior to baking this. ( I liked her a lot prior BTW)
Again I am not following directions( I do not recommend this as a habit)
but I am not letting it cool I am eating it with my coffee NOW and getting back to my class.
( In all fairness we left the house to go to church this morning, yes on a Friday, and I did not eat breakfast or lunch. *I also do not recommend this on THM) So there you have it today I am breaking all the rules and enjoying every bite.
My modification you can taste the pumpkin, but it is not strong like pumpkin pie. Perfect for my house ! My hubby is not big on pumpkin so this works great for me!
Thank you Teresia and Taryn!
