Hello, welcome to Djalali Cooks! Well, here we are two days into Fall and since you can’t fight nature, I have decided to embrace the shorter days and the cooler temperatures. Before we know it the holiday season will be upon us and baked treats will occupy our ovens. Today I have rounded up a few of the perfect-for-Fall baked goods recipes we have featured so far on Djalali Cooks. So, let’s get ready for Fall Baking!
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins
It usually takes me until November to be in the mood for sweet pumpkin recipes, but I know many of you are excited to envelope your senses in the warm and comforting embrace of pumpkin spice-everything. So today, I wanted to share this recipe for Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins. This recipe was the first recipe to appear on Djalali Cooks last year. It’s my favorite sweet pumpkin recipe, so I hope you give this one a try and enjoy the sweet flavors of Fall!
Neapolitan Semolina Cake with Citrus and Cardamom
This recipe was featured back in June, but the citrus and warm cardamom flavor is right at home in the Fall. This cake is like a cross between cake and flan; its texture is dense and creamy, yet it’s light and refreshing. The flavor is only lightly sweet, perfumed with citrus, vanilla and spice.
Campari Olive Oil Cake
This cake is pretty amazing. It’s not super sweet; it has wonderful bittersweet citrus notes from the grapefruit and the Campari, and is perfectly balanced with the orange and lemon flavors. The exterior develops a gorgeous golden, crunchy crust that gives way to a beautifully scented, moist interior.
Spiced Banana Cake
I have mentioned it here before, but Alex and I rarely eat sweets. However, I have been wanting to practice baking, because I am not very good at it! So today we have a Spiced Banana Cake with a Brown Butter Cream Cheese Frosting. This cake has a very mellow sweetness and a light banana flavor. It kind of reminds me of a fancier way to have banana bread.
