things i like: pumpkin. ginger. cardamom. chocolate. choices. these glazed pumpkin ginger scone cakes which, perhaps not coincidentally, contain all of those things.
let me get the most obvious question out of the way first: can we put both the cardamom AND the chocolate glazes on the scones? yes, you could. also? i don’t recommend it. i know, i know, it sounds like crazytalk. i might be the only one, but i think cardamom and chocolate are sort of compete-y with each other, and as much as i love them both individually or paired with things that are not each other, i’m just not that excited about the combination of them together.
the good news for you, though, is that you get to make *your* glazed pumpkin ginger scone cakes however *you* want, so if you want to drizzle both glazes on there, have at it!
the good news for *me* is that i have a plan to get the rest of the glazed pumpkin ginger scones, you know, the ones i haven’t already eaten, out of the house. this may not sound like good news but trust me, many mouthfuls of scone cakes later, this is definitely a good thing.
it’s possible that the reason i’m so excited to find a home for the remaining scone cakes is so that i can dive in to the list of amazing sounding recipes that my fellow food bloggers have put together for the annual virtual pumpkin party. woohoo!
at last count, there were nearly 100 seriously delicious recipes featuring pumpkin in everything from spiced pumpkin chocolate swirl muffins to pressure cooker savory pumpkin mac and cheese. yuuuum. to check out all of these beautiful creations/get your meal plans for the next few weeks sorted, head over to the virtual pumpkin party headquarters to check out the full list of recipes from this year, as well as years past. it’s very nearly too much for my pumpkin-loving heart to handle. (huge thanks to sara from cake over steak for coordinating the tastiest party i’ve ever been a part of!)
and closer to home, here are some pumpkin-y favorites from the archives:
i think between the archives here and the virtual pumpkin party, if i make two pumpkin recipes a day every day, i’ll be able to get through all of these yums just in time for christmas… goals!
