As I have said, there are many things to love about my life right now…especially since I am writing this on the couch at my family’s house with two little cutie pie puppies by my side!
I was super happy to walk in a house all decorated for fall last night. Our whole house is decorated, but I especially love the mantel and family room area. I am candle obsessed and think they add such a homey feeling to any room!
I am also super excited to be home because I got to go to Zumba today. I love Zumba at my home dance studio. I love the people that are at the class and the songs that they dance to!
Another thing to love about fall: my mom’s pumpkin gobs. Do you call them gobs? I know a lot of people call them whoopie pies, but where I am from, they’re gobs. I especially love her recipe because I am not the biggest cream cheese filling fan, and these don’t have it!
Here’s mama’s recipe!
Ingredients for the cake:
- 2 c. brown sugar
- 2 c. pumpkin
- 1 t. cinnamon
- 1 t. cloves
- 1 t. baking powder
- 3 c. flour
- 1 c. vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 t. ginger
- 1 t. salt
- 1 t. baking soda
- 1 t. vanilla
Directions for the cake:
Cream sugar, oil, pumpkin and eggs. Add vanilla and dry ingredients. Mix well. Drop by tablespoon onto lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 12 – 15 minutes.
Ingredients for filling:
- 1 (2 oz) box instant vanilla pudding
- 1 c. sugar
- 1 c. milk
- 1 c. crisco shortening
- 1 t. vanilla
Directions for filling:
Putt all ingredients in mixing bowl and beat until think enough to spread. Put 2 cakes together with filling. Enjoy!
Well, they may not be the healthiest thing ever, but pumpkin’s a fruit, right? So if I eat them for lunch, I will have a well rounded meal! Bahaha…
Another fall thing I am loving…
I know a lot of you are in love with it, too. Do you also like Indian corn? What about the ones shaped like pumpkins? Right now I am trying my hardest to keep the bag closed so I don’t devour it in 2.3 seconds…
Since my mama has some candy corn, I think I may have to make these from Averie at Love Veggies and Yoga. I saw the recipe and fell in love with the pictures!
I’m off to catch up on some On Demand shows since my life at school is crazy hectic and I just want to relax today!
Do you call them gobs? Whoopie pies? Something totally different?
Are you a candy corn fan or no?
