Hanna arrived this early afternoon....but not as forceful as predicted. Just rain, rain and more rain and more rain! Still raining here - it is dark and humid and just plain miserable. A few shoppers made their way to the store and we are very grateful for that!
Otherwise the Pumpkin Buckle was absolutely delicious and a BIG hit....Here is the recipe -
~*~MAGIC PUMPKIN BUCKLE~*~
1/2 butter or margarine, melted, 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 4 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 cup milk and 1 t. vanilla
Filling - 3 cups cooked or canned pumpkin, 1 cup Evaporated milk, 2 eggs, 1 cup sugar, 1/2 c. packed brown sugar, 1 T. Flour, 1 tsp. cinnamon 1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. each of ginger, cloves and nutmeg ( I used 1 tsp. of Pumpkin Pie Spice)
Topping - 1 T. butter 2 T. sugar
Pour butter into a 9X13 baking dish, set aside. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar baking powder and salt. Stir in milk and vanilla until smooth ( I used a whisk and no lumps)Pour into the prepared pan. In a mixing bowl, beat the pumpkin, milk, and eggs. Combine the remaining filling ingredients and add to pumpkin mixture. Pour over crust mixture - DO NOT STIR. Dot with butter and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 55-60 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean and the top is golden brown. Serve warm or cold with ice cream or whipped cream.
