Pumpkin Layer Cake With Maple Pecan Clusters Recipe by Rebecca Firth | DisplacedHousewife

Pumpkin Layer Cake With Maple Pecan Clusters


I had a hankering for a really delicious pumpkin layer cake. I reached for the brown sugar. Nope, we need something more. We need jazz hands. I reached back in and grabbed the muscovado. Yes. Yes, this will do just fine. I didn’t want to make a pumpkin layer cake with a million jazz hands because that can be overwhelming.…

Spiced Apple Cake With Brown Butter Buttercream


I’m starting to think I have a tendency to overdo things just a wee bit. I really just wanted to make an easy, one-layer apple cake. I was picturing a light dusting of powdered sugar over the top. A snack cake. We could eat it for breakfast…lunch…dinner…snacks in between. Nobody would judge us because the name implies (insists?) we eat…

Cranberry Pecan Baked Apples


We’re not making baked apples nearly as often as we should. I know this. For a fact. It’s just not a go-to dessert and I’d like to change that. First, because it is next-level deliciousness. Second, because it’s one of the easiest desserts you’ll ever make. I’m proposing these cranberry pecan baked apples as a sweet treat to get us through until…

Halloween Candy Cookies


First, let me just say these candy cookies are life changing. Who else always has a ton of leftover Halloween candy? If I don’t buy too much candy to hand out, then my kids bring home ridiculous amounts of candy that haunts us for weeks and sometimes months. Dentists say it’s better to OD on candy over a few days rather than every…

Brown Butter Pumpkin Donuts


I really resisted the whole baked donut thing. For a long time. Cast them aside as imposters. Heretics. Then one day as I was mindlessly perusing Bed, Bath & Beyond I spied a donut tin heaped on top of a messy pile of towels and tooth brush holders and shower caps. I held it up and inspected it. I had visions of me…

Apple Cinnamon Muffins


I was at the doctor the other day and he spent 45 minutes trying to convince me to go vegan. To ward off inflammation. Do you think this is what he had in mind? These apple cinnamon muffins are so easy + delicious, it breaks down like this… Whip up your wet ingredients (think buttermilk, sour cream, eggs + oil)…

Portuguese Soup With Crispy Prosciutto + Manchego Toast


I wanted to create a soup that was Caldo Verde adjacent, with potatoes and kale and sausage, but I wanted (NEEDED) more of a clear soup rather than creamy. So I set out to use all of the key Caldo Verde players: Portuguese sausage (I offer several substitutions below if you can’t find it), loads of kale and potatoes. Then thoughts…

Slow Cooker Spiced Apple Cider

My…

Pumpkin Streusel Muffins


Can we talk about the marble in these photos? I’m obsessed. When I first bought my house there were a million things wrong with it (I thought). In fact when the realtor showed me this particular house I said If you show me one more house with a pot-bellied stove, I’m done. There are a ton of houses in our area…
