Today I decided to bake...not something I usually take the time to do--unless I'm getting paid :-)
So I decided to make some cake balls but make them pumpkin flavored. I don't like pumpkin so didn't try them...but Jason liked them and even the kids (who don't like pumpkin usually) thought they were pretty good.
I used this recipe from Mom's Cookbook (the one dad and mom put together awhile back)
Pumpkin Cake 2 cups pumpkin 4 eggs 1 cup oil (recipe said butter flavored...I used regular) 1 cup sugar 1 cup brown sugar 2 cups flour 2 tsp soda 2 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp salt I also added about 1/2 tsp ginger and 1/2 tsp nutmeg
Cream pumpkin, eggs, sugars, and oil...Add dry ingredients...Bake in ungreased pan at 350 for 40 minutes
Then once the cake cooled I crumbled it all up and added 1 tub of cream cheese frosting. I formed that mixture into balls and then chilled them in the freezer. While the cake balls were chilling I melted white chocolate bark coating. Once the coating was melted I dipped each cake ball into the chocolate and allowed it to harden on wax paper...I also sprinkled the top of each cake ball with some cinnamon sugar.
Here's some pics:
I also made Jason's favorite dessert today...Pumpkin pie...now to see if he can eat them both before they go bad :-)
