Amuse me!! Favorite fall flavor combos (recipes?)

post #1 of 126
Thread Starter 
HI!

I had a major surgery 3 a little over 3 weeks ago- not caking, no walking, no nothing for 3 weeks-
now I have complications that are keeping me down even longer! (Not easy with 4 small kiddos!) It may be months!

Anyway, I am super bored and loving watching trees change from my window so I was wondering if ya'll might amuse me and give me some of your favorite fall flavor combination. (If you include a recipe that's even better!) I'm not even allowed to stand up to cook or bake or anything but I might be able to in my imagination icon_lol.gif

I may be weird but I don't change cake flavors due to the season. I like what I like and that's what I eat, no matter what time of year. It's not that I dont' like anything new ... it's that I'm 50 years old and I've spent my life trying other stuff and I've narrowed it down to what I like. icon_biggrin.gif

white cake.....always.
red raspberry or chocolate fudge filling.
chocolate icing or my white BC.

I wish you a healthy recovery ! I love fall its one of my favorite months.
But I like it all. the apple and cinnamon and caramel.
I love to burn all of those candles right now to . I love the pumpkin pies, a nice warm slice with a scoop of cold vanilla ice cream on top.

Prayers for a speedy and complete healing. Hope you have lots of help w/those kiddos.

I never changed flavors either but the good ideas have all been mentioned.
Pumpkin spice cake w/bavarian fill; b'cream iced.
Apple cinnamon. Spice w/apple (pie) filling.

Pumpkin spice /candy corn an tons of others choc truffle/ dark choc raspberry Oh and caramel apple. And several more. they are great on top of cupcakes or added to the batter for a center suprise!

Thanks guys!
All these sound so yummy- yummy!!
I have never tried any apple/caramel cake- I have lots of time to come up with one though so I'll be hunting!
Indebi- I do know what you mean. I also have my flavors narrowed down to what makes someone take a bite and say "YUMMMMM- I've never had anything like this before!!" but since I love fall I thought I'd maybe try to throw in a new creation or two- assuming I get better before fall is goneicon_sad.gif

fiddlesticks- thanks for the info on those threads. I'll be checking them out now!! They sound like they have some great ideas!!

I just made a spice cake with a maple SMBC and LOVED it. Very fall and fun. Going to play with that combination more.

And Luvscake, I do hope you're feeling better. Its so hard to stay down and not do the things you love, like caking, playing with your kids, etc. I'm stubborn and I push it too early too and then it takes longer to heal icon_smile.gif

Like a 4 tier wedding cake 6 days after gall bladder removal and playing in a softball tournament exactly 2 weeks after the surgery icon_smile.gif ....what, the doctor said I couldn't play for 2 weeks... 6 weeks of not picking up your kids??....not so easy to do.

I too wish you a speedy recovery. Here is one of my all time favorites. You can use 1 cup of leftover oatmeal instead of the water and oatmeal in the recipe. I will warn all that this is a heavy cake and although it has a frosting my family eats it before I can get the frosting on. Here's my first contribution to my new CC family. Hope you all enjoy.
Apple Oatmeal Spice Cake
1 1/4 Cup boiling water
1 Cup quick cooking oatmeal
1 Cup margarine melted
Stir together and cool.
Mix 1 Cup white sugar and 1 Cup brown sugar in a bowl and mix well with the oatmeal mixture. Add two eggs and mix well.

Sift together 1 1/3 cups flour, 1 tsp. soda, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp cloves and 1/4 tsp ginger. Add oatmeal mixture and mix well. Add 1 or two cups of diced or shredded apples. Pour into an ugngreased 9 X 13 pan and bake at 350 for 35 min (or until the middle looks done). You know all ovens are not the same!

Blessings! Debra

Ok, I can't believe I'm saying this, but that apple-oatmeal thing sounds pretty interesting! icon_redface.gificon_biggrin.gif

I think I'm not a fan of "fall" flavors because they are too full of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger ..... that flavor family .. and that's why it's funny this sounds good! In spite of having all 4 in the recipe! icon_lol.gif When I give this one a try, hubby won't believe it! icon_lol.gifthumbs_up.gif

luvscakes....... get that rest you need and may you soon be up and about again.

I love changing everything with the seasons. Our seasons in California don't really change that much, we go from hot...to....cloudy drizzly for 3 months, then back to hot. I spent the first 50 years of my life in the Midwest , Missouri and Iowa. I developed the use of the seasons there and continue it. I love using what is in season...fresh.

Cakes in the fall, yummm, yes, Fresh apple cake with caramel icing (cooked, not powdered sugar), German chocolate cake with German chocolate icing (both scratch of course), Hickory Nut cake with Seafoam frosting, carrot cake with Cream Cheese frosting.

.....and beyond cake, there is, apple, pumpkin and pecan pie, walnut or pecan tarts, apple dumplings.

.....and home made soups simmering all day served with hot homemade breads a pot of beans boiled with fresh port hocks, served with butter drenched corn bread.

Pull on that sweater, start a fire in the fireplace and get ready to face winter.

BCJean, I love sweater-n-soup weather!

We are THE house in the neighborhood on Halloween. My kids and grandkids come over and I have a big pot of my chili simmering on the stove. We kinda munch on it all night long, in between Hershey Bars and Sweet Tarts!

BTW all, I'm in a chili cookoff this next Sunday (28th). Wish me luck!!! WHen my son got home from Iraq, there were only 3 things he wanted: Mom's chicken-n-dumplins; Mom's beef-n-noodles; Mom's chili!

Hello,

Hope you have a speedy recovery. Well it's not fall here but it is spring(31 degrees celcius) and going into summer fast. I'm a bit like Indy. What I like is what I like. You do see more pav's and fresh cream sponges around summer and in winter you see more sticky date pudding and self sauce pudding.

Just give me a pm if you want to chat more if your too bored.
Cheers for now
