Some Pumpkin Delights

October and November mean it’s pumpkin season!  Now that it’s almost December, it seemed time to wrap up on the pumpkin baking for this season.

Yes, it’s steaming and I probably could have waited to layer everything, but I actually enjoy the temperature contrasts between the different components.IMG_3687

Pumpkin Banana Loaf with Mascarpone Frosting
