19 Warm & Cozy Pumpkin Recipes to Whip Up This Fall
This is the ultimate list of pumpkin recipes; there truly is something here for everything. We run the gamut from breakfast to dinner and dessert with recipes like pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin muffins with cream cheese filling, pumpkin soup, pumpkin spice latte cupcakes, pumpkin scones, and more!
October is here! Raise your hand if you have pumpkin adorning your front porch yet… anyone? We’re not there yet, but hoping to pick some up today so we can commence with the fall decorating.
I always feel like September kicks off apple baking season, while October kicks off pumpkin. I’m ready to swim in a sea of pumpkin and cream cheese frosting for the next two months, how about you!?
Below are 19 of my very favorite pumpkin recipes to get you through this season. Which one are you going to make first??!
Pumpkin Bread with Chocolate Chips & Pecans
This easy, one-bowl pumpkin bread is crazy moist, loaded with spices, chocolate chips, and pecans, and freezes beautifully. It is a perfect bread to put out for company, serve on Thanksgiving, or bake up in small loaf pans for holiday gifts.
Pumpkin Yummy Dessert
Pumpkin Yummy Dessert is made like a dump cake, with a pumpkin pie layer topped with a buttery cake layer. A quick and easy Thanksgiving dessert!
Pumpkin Scones with Spiced Glaze
These pumpkin scones are a copycat version of Starbucks’ pumpkin scone; they are warmly spiced and topped with two sweet glazes – one plain and one spiced.
My absolute favorite pumpkin pie recipe, which features a little bit of sweet potato and maple syrup, which turns into one amazingly phenomenal pie! You’ll never go back to the recipe on the back of the can again.
Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting
Incredibly moist with loads of pumpkin flavor and traditional fall spices, and topped with a huge swirl of classic cream cheese frosting. Make them for every single occasion from now until Thanksgiving!
Pumpkin and Cream Cheese Muffins with Pecan Streusel
The perfect fall brunch recipe! Lovely little pumpkin muffins are stuffed with a cream cheese center and topped with a pecan-studded crumb mixture. These are what fall dreams are made of.
Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle
A classic! Layers of crumbled gingerbread cake with a pumpkin mousse and whipped cream are the perfect post-Thanksgiving feast dessert, plus it feeds a crowd.
Pumpkin pancakes are light and moist, full of wonderful fall flavor, and a great breakfast treat once the weather cools down.
Pumpkin Spice Latte Cupcakes
A cupcake iteration of Starbucks’ famous drink! A spiced pumpkin cupcake is amped up with mocha flavor and topped with the most amazing whipped cream frosting you’ll ever eat.
Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Crumb Bar
The combination of layers of oatmeal crumb crust, a silky smooth pumpkin pie filling, and crunchy crumb topping are absolutely phenomenal.
Is it even Thanksgiving if you don’t have a pumpkin roll to serve!? Pumpkin cake rolled up with sweet cream cheese frosting is EVERYTHING after that big meal!
Maple Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars
What’s better than cheesecake? Portable cheesecake BARS and these are flavored pumpkin and maple for the ultimate in fall flavors.
Pumpkin Doughnut Muffins
Pumpkin cake doughnuts made in a muffin tin totally covered in a sugar coating.
Pumpkin Ice Cream
If you want to add pumpkin to your menu but want something a little less traditional, this pumpkin ice cream would be the perfect thing!
Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting
Another iteration of my favorite fall flavor combination – pumpkin and cream cheese!
Pumpkin Cookies with Brown Butter Icing
Wonderfully soft and fluffy pumpkin cookies topped with the most amazing brown butter icing – don’t skip it!
Pumpkin Soup with Apple & Spices
I had to give you at least ONE savory pumpkin recipe, right?! This pumpkin soup makes a delicious, satisfying fall meal.
Looking for an alternative to pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving dessert. This pumpkin cheesecake is IT!
Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Maple-Cream Cheese Filling

Thank you for many great desert recipes, Michelle. We’re celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving here next Monday and I need to bake some goodies. Now what to bake, as they’re all better than the other!
An early Happy Thanksgiving to you, Annie! Enjoy your holiday!
I lived in Southern California for 20 years. There, Fall decorating takes place on Labor Day weekend , or soon after, because, really, there aren’t many trees that change colors, and the weather stays the same. So I still decorate for Fall on labor Day. I love it. My pumpkins have been out, I have the spice scented candles going and the scarecrows are up.
I *LOVE* that! And may totally adopt that next year :)
