I was given a gift of fruit basket which had a jar of pumpkin butter (Organic). I don't have any recipes which I can use it in, but don't want to waste it. Can anybody help me with a recipe of a cake, or a cup cake or cookie using that?
You can use it in place of whatever you use apple butter on toast or biscuits.
Use it in between a spice or pumpkin cake as the filling. Other wise just spoon it on toast or english muffin.
Here's a link for a pumpkin butter pie: http://southernfood.about.com/od/pumpkins/r/r71021d.htm
And one for fruit butter bread: http://southernfood.about.com/od/quickbreadrecipes/r/bl10831c.htm
I love pumpkin butter -- buy it every year at the Cider mill. I like it as a spread on gingerbread muffins that I make in the Fall. It's subtle taste offsets the sharpness of the gingerbread. Basically any recipe involving apple butter you can substitute pumpkin butter. Hope that helps some!
Thanks for those ideas. I will try it as a filling between spice cake. The one goes fast in my house.
No way in the world would I waste it on my family! I hoard that stuff. It ain't cheap & it's sooooo good. I love it on graham crackers w/ a little cream cheese. Yum. Ok, going to the fridge.
