5. Pumpkin Ricotta and Apple Frittata

This apple and pumpkin frittata makes a terrific fall breakfast. Unlike a quiche, a frittata does not require a crust and can be whipped up quickly to serve a large crowd. If roasting the pumpkin beforehand, make sure to put the cast-iron skillet in the oven while it is preheating in the morning so the eggs start to bake as soon as they hit the pan.

6. Maple Pumpkin-Pecan Snacking Cake

This maple-scented pumpkin cake is made with spelt flour and both freshly ground and chopped pecans; the batter is then sprinkled with demerara sugar just before baking for a wonderfully crispy top. It might just be the best portable treat to take with you while you trick-or-treat—because everyone needs a snack between candy bars.
