Garrosh Hellscream over at The Command Board requested this during a twitter conversation. Apparently I do requests now.
Don't get used to it, Warchief!
You will need:
This recipe is quite flexible.
It was originally an apple coffee cake but I twisted it around to work with pumpkin pie.
Did you alter your favorite recipe?
1/2 c shortening
1 c white sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 c flour
1/2 c quick oats
(If you don't have oats, replace the 1/2c oats with flour.)
1 tbs baking powder
(I use 1 tsp baking soda & 1/2 tsp lemon juice. I think it raises better.)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c milk
1 c pumpkin puree
1/4 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
In a large bowl, cream shortening and 1 cup sugar until light.
Beat in egg and vanilla until fluffy.
Add pumpkin, oats and spices.
Add flour, baking powder and salt to the creamed mixture.
Sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon on top.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 30-45 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean and the edges are brown.
