What Can I make w/ 1 Cup of Pumpkin Puree?

I have 1 Cup of Pumpkin Puree in the freezer from late fall when I cooked my own pumpklins for pumpkin pie.

I looked at a couple pumpkin muffin recipes, but they call for 15-16 oz.

what can I do with this single cup of pumkin puree?

  • don't worry about using to much or too little pumpkin..I make pumpkin bars all the time that call for a cup of pumpkin, I just use the whole can without adjusting ingredients and it works out great!!
    I grew up with bakers and found a person does not have to be exact in recipes. Try going to allrecipes.com they have a guide that if you list the ingredients they will match it to a recipe.

  • I know I don't have to be exact- but I really don't want to be short on pumpkin by 50%. if the recipe is 2 cups and I have only have 1.

    I think I'll make the pancakes. actually a double batch. 1 plain and 1 pumpkin- for the picky kids of the family.

    THANKS everyone..

    Reduce servings to 12 and make only 1 loaf instead of two.
