PUMPKIN CUSTARD CAKE ~ IT’S MAGIC!

I had this vanilla custard cake recipe sitting out on the counter for a month.  Every time I would walk past it, that creamy, custardy, photo of the cake called out for me to hurry up and get to baking.

I finally pulled all of my ingredients out of the pantry and decided at the last minute that I wanted to add pumpkin flavor.  Back to the pantry to pull out my trusty pumpkin pudding pie filling.  I use it in so many pumpkin recipes and the flavor never lets me down.

FRESH PEAR CAKE

I am always on the lookout for pear recipes, especially this year since the apple trees didn’t produce.

Enter…..delicious cake.  I’m mean really delicious cake.

I omitted the nutmeg and cloves called for in most recipes since I didn’t have any on hand.  You are welcome to add a little to taste.

CAKE INGREDIENTS

  • 4 cups peeled, cored and chopped pears
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup  Butter
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups Heavy Whipping Cream
1 cup toffee bits

PASTA STIR-FRY FROM THE GARDEN

 

I make varieties of this pasta dish all summer long using vegetables from the garden. This time I only used carrots, yellow squash, and tomatoes.  I usually also add zucchini but you can add any vegetable you like.

I know I say this on most of my recipes but this is your meal.  Make it with the ingredients you like. If you don’t like the garlic in this recipe, don’t add it.  If you want to use a different type of squash, go ahead.

For me, this is perfect.  I could eat it every night.  It’s not heavy like spaghetti with sauce, making it perfect for summer dinners.
