Anyone making cake for Thanksgiving? This is my ginger cake with pumpkin moussaline from last year; I just have pies and bars this time around.

***I had so many people ask for the recipe, I just put it up on my site! Link in profile**** Pumpkin! Fresh out of the oven. I always make my custard-y pies the day before Thanksgiving, and my fruit pies the morning of. I think I’m going to try a powdered sugar design on top of this one - inspired by @kitchenhealssoul - check out her Insta for the prettiest pumpkin pie ever.

More pumpkin this morning- this time in loaf form. This is Pumpkin-Olive Oil Bread (recipe in my book-link in profile!) - a favorite quick bread that I’ve been making for years. Also, do you like toasted nuts in your quick breads? My family hates them, but I think they taste better with. vanillabeanbakingbook

Sometimes simple is best. Pumpkin pound cake, with chocolate. I’ve been making this for almost 20 years, and it never disappoints. (Fancy glasses of milk is for the kids, ha.) vanillabeanbakingbook

I’ve had a lot of emails/messages from people looking for the chocolate chip cookie recipe after seeing them on @wcco last night! The recipe is in my cookbook (link to that in my profile) or you can find it on my site, or on @wcco, or in the @nytfood (so many options!) Thanks again to @derushaj for telling my cookie story. bangonapan

Yesterday @zoebakes made my banana bread, which reminded me I had bags of overripe, frozen bananas in my freezer I should probably put to good use. (Also! If you aren’t following @zoebakes , it’s time to do so! Her feed is gorgeous, and her Instagram stories are the best.) vanillabeanbakingbook

I have three holiday recipes in the December/January issue of @finecookingmag : coffee blondies, mint chocolate bars, pumpkin bars with brown butter frosting, and hazelnut white chocolate cheesecake bars. (Also, I’m sort of in love with this video they made of my bars.) You can find the recipes in the newest issue of Fine Cooking Magazine!

It’s my son’s golden birthday this weekend, and his one request was chocolate cake topped with chocolate sprinkle donuts. I’m slightly horrified with this mountain of sugar, but he thought it was amazing. (Donuts from @sarahjanesbakeryne + cake from the vanillabeanbakingbook )

I have pear coffee cake on @handmadecharlotte today! This coffeecake incorporates grated pear instead of diced fruit, which gives the cake so much flavor, and keeps the cake moist for days.

Still pinching myself to find my chocolate chip cookies in today’s @nytfood ( @juliamoskin ). I’ve had so many messages and emails the past few days with questions, and I’m working on a blog post (complete with video!) to help with any troubleshooting. If you are looking for the recipe, you can find it over at the New York Times website. Thank you again for all your support, and for making my cookies! ❤️ (photo styled by @snixykitchen !)

I know pumpkin is overdone every autumn, but I honestly make these in the summer sometimes; they’re my favorite type of scone. Pumpkin scones; recipe in my book! vanillabeanbakingbook

I’m still finding rhubarb at my local co-op/grocery store, which has me plotting all kinds of recipes with apples and pears. But my favorite thing to make just might be this rhubarb buttercream (recipe in my site archives).

Apparently it's going to be the hottest weekend of the summer here in Minneapolis, even though it's the first day of fall. My oven is cranked and cinnamon rolls are going in, despite the heat. (Also, if you're a super nerd like me, it's Bilbo Baggins' birthday, so you can celebrate however your little hobbit heart desires. (I'm thinking honey cake, perhaps.))

Weekly batch of chocolate chip cookies. They always come in handy: for after school snacks, to trade with the neighbors for their home brew, to pass out to friends when they stop over, and to comfort eat after reading the news. vanillabeanbakingbook
