5 tips on How to make a fall dessert
1. Add applesauce
Apples are in the spotlight all September and October, so now is the time to cook them! Replace fat (often oil or butter) in recipes with applesauce. Simply substitute the desired amount of fat with applesauce. The result will be delicious since the apple will give the recipe a soft and sweet taste!
2. Use pumpkin puree
Just like apples, pumpkins are very popular during fall. Pumpkin puree is used the same way that we can use applesauce in some recipes. It replaces perfectly fat and gives a delicious pumpkin flavor to recipes.
3. Add spices
One of the essential points for a dessert to be an autumn sweetness: Spices! Here are the most commonly used ones: cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger, cardamom and black pepper. Cinnamon is the spice that should be used the most in recipes (usually 1 tsp), and the rest should be used in moderation so it won't take all the taste (about ¼ tsp).
4. Adding nuts & seeds
Using nuts in a sweet recipe adds a perfect little crunch! For fall, I especially like pecans and almonds, as well as pumpkin seeds. Nuts and seeds are easy to add to any recipe.
5. Use maple syrup
Replace white or brown sugar with maple syrup. The taste of maple fits just right with all the flavors listed above in addition to being a more natural sweetener! Maple brings a little caramelized taste to recipes, and it's right in time for the fall season!
-My last little advice is to cook hot or warm desserts. With the cold weather starting here, enjoying a comforting dessert is simply the best! I wish you a nice cooking time at home!
