I hope everyone has a safe and delicious Thanksgiving!
I’m currently at home with my family enjoying a lot of food. After a night of stressful baking, it’s good to finally relax. I baked a couple of desserts for Thanksgiving this year for both my family and BF’s family. I’ll be doing a round up of all the desserts I baked in preparation for Thanksgiving later. Here is one of the desserts gracing my table: pumpkin mochi cakes baked inside pumpkin molds.
I knew I was going to make pumpkin mochi cakes and I was trying to decide on a mold to bake them in. I thought it would be cute to use pumpkin molds and searched for a pumpkin pan. I got this mold from the Martha Stewart collection and thought it was so cute.
Pumpkin mochi cake has been on my Thanksgiving day menu for years now, ever since someone brought it to a potluck I attended. Last year, I made the mistake of changing things up a bit. Since I had so many pumpkin flavored desserts, I thought I’d try making a different flavor of mochi cake. Big Mistake. Huge.
Everyone kept asking where the pumpkin mochi cake was! So I’ve learned my lesson. No more messing with people’s favorites.
