October always marks a very special time for fall fans, spooky season! You know what that means... it's time to bring out fall flavors. Another key to enjoying the Halloween season is gathering with your family & friends and sharing the unique flavors of fall. How do you guarantee that you have spook flavors?
Snuggle a Warm Coffee
One key to cold weather is snuggling up with a warm cup of coffee. Our favorite for fall is our RuCafe Perfecto Espresso- Brazil. Pair it with your favorite maple or pumpkin creamer to make it extra cozy.
While a warm cup of coffee is already snug there is still more that opportunity to get even cozier. For the ultimate comfort experience, let's add a fall dessert that pairs well with coffee like a Pumpkin & Caramel cake! Use our featured recipe below with one of our favorite products Perú- Manjar Blanco.
For a tasty fall treat.
Pumpkin & Caramel Cake
*Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit
*Butter two cake tins
*In a large bowl combine oil, cake mix, pumpkin puree, milk, eggs, and spice
Mix until smooth
*Pour the mixture into cake tins and bake for 22-25 minutes
(Tip insert a toothpick to test if the cake is cooked through. The toothpick should come out clean)
*Allow cake to cool in tins while working on the frosting
*Beat cream cheese in a medium bowl briefly until fluffy
*Then add sugar, spice, and pumpkin puree
*After the cakes have cooled, cut each cake in half so you have four thin cakes.
*On the bottom layer of the cake and the plate spread a layer of Dulce De Leche then smooth over a layer of filling and repeat these steps until you have completed your cake tower
*Drizzle dulce de leche, and pecans on the top
Invite Family & Friends
Now that you got your perfect treats it's time to make it festive! Serve our espresso and pumpkin cake for a movie night with your favorite people. Make it extra spooky with some Halloween classics! Just in case you need some movies to consider showing Beetlejuice, Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, or Scream.
