I know every one posts a pumpkin recipe once Thanksgiving season rolls around and I’m sure they all say that theirs is the best, but I’ll be the only one to tell the truth about that, today with my pumpkin cakeballs.
If you don’t know what a cakeball is, allow me to explain. First you bake a cake and then let it cool. Once it’s completely cooled, crumble it up into a large bowl and add your favorite vanilla buttercream. Mush it all together until the buttercream is well incorporated and then roll the cake into small balls. Once you’ve rolled the cakeballs, dip them in chocolate and let it create a shell. Decorate as you please!
Here’s my favorite holiday cakeball recipe that I’m sure you’ll enjoy too!
1 Stick butter
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 cups light brown sugar
½ cups granulated sugar
Place all of your ingredients except for the frosting and the melting chocolate into the bowl of a large mixer. Turn on the mixer and mix until everything is well incorporated. After that, pour into a cake pan and let cook for 30-45 minutes (be sure the cake is done before you take it out of the oven.)
Let your cake cool and then crumble it up into a bowl. Add about ¼ cup of frosting and keep adding it as needed. You should end when your cake has reached a play dough like texture.
Now that you have the cake, just roll them into little balls and dip them in chocolate. When you dip them, drop the cakeball in the bowl of melted chocolate, stir it around with the spoon to make sire it’s completely covered, then scoop it out with a spoon and lay it on a piece of parchment or wax paper to let it dry.
