Sandy,

This Pumpkin recipe was created to have something to try with hulled hemp seeds
... but the seeds were not special (I prefer the traditional walnuts or pecans).
However, the less sugar (than typical) created a great sweet/salt balance,
making this slightly less "dessert" and more "healthy side dish". :roll

As "dessert", it's a good alternative to a buffet of sweet stuff.

:idea: The hemp seeds were tasty over sliced fresh peaches
with half & half and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Of course,
a dollop or two could be substituted for half & half. :roll:

Rod,
I've always thought pumpkin and pecans were simply made for each other. They seem to perfectly compliment each other :)
( Now I am hungry for my mom's pumpkin cake. (paired with pecans of course. ;) )
I haven't tried hemp seed but my pigeon, Pidge, loves them.

Have a good week end! :bike:

Broccoli Casseroli

Comfort food featuring broccoli and onions
with supporting nutrition of cooked polenta.

:roll Ingredients:

3/4 rounded cup polenta (corn grits)
2 cups water, then 1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp virgin olive oil

1 quart chopped broccoli tops
1 large sweet onion, chopped
6 slices Pepper Jack cheese

MW Pumpkin Cornbread

Post by Amigoo » Mon Oct 14, 2019 5:04 pm

MW Pumpkin Cornbread

Seriously upgraded cornbread mix*, but featuring true pumpkin cornbread -
not the faux breads that are just pumpkin bread with cornmeal added. :roll:
For breakfast or dessert, try with light orange icing.

:roll Ingredients:

3/4 rounded cup polenta (corn grits)
1 1/2 cups water

6oz pkg "White Cornbread Mix"
1/3 cup light oat bran
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar

1/2 15oz can pumpkin puree
1 xlg egg + 1/4 cup egg whites
2/3 cup skim milk
1 tbsp virgin olive oil

:arrow: Directions:

Lightly oil a 10"x 10" baking dish;
pre-heat oven to 400F degrees.

Simmer polenta in water until water absorbed
(about 10 min.), then cool 5 min.

In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients;
in a small bowl whisk eggs and milk,
then whisk in pumpkin and olive oil.

Stir egg mixture into cooked polenta,
then stir into dry ingredients.

Spoon into baking dish, reduce oven to 375F
and bake 45-50 min.

* Martha White's "White Cornbread Mix" (mentioned for reference)
is just convenience for supporting ingredients and minimal flour. ;)

Feeling your pain, Sandy, I kept researching ...

LOL1: (Pumpkin Spice for Snickerdoodles)
https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/gra ... 910579002/
- 3 tbsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- 2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1 1/2 tsp ground cloves

LOL2: (for 1-2 dozen cookies)
https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/hom ... pie-spice/
- 4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- 1 tsp ground cloves
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

LOL3: (162 4-star reviews, for 1 dozen cookies)
https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/20476/pumpkin-spice/
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp ground cloves

LOL4: (my recent test of a quick bread)
- 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp ground cloves

:bana: Why not divide the 3 dozen cookies into 4 batches,
giving each batch a different Pumpkin Spice blend ...
then you need only consume 4 cookies per test ...
with 8 more tests possible! (or it's a party). :roll

Rod :)
