I wish you all…

A very happy Halloween! And in the spirit of carving jack-o-lanterns, I give you a recipe that uses the cut out pumpkin pieces. I’ve had this recipe since I was in kindergarten- my teacher Mrs. Blach gave it out to us, and almost every year since we’ve made them. Enjoy.

Yes, that’s the original ditto, from 1985! It’s seen a lot of love (& a lot of messes too) since then.



  • ¾ cup flour
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg
  • 2 tbsps milk
  • Cut out jack-o-lantern pumpkin pieces
  • 1/8 cup butter
  • 1 egg


  1. Preheat oven to 350° degrees. Wash the cut out pumpkin face pieces thoroughly. Bake them until soft, approx. 30 minutes. Let them cool, then peel them and mash them. Change oven temp. to 400°.
  2. Mix together flour, honey, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a bowl. Add egg, butter and ¼ cup of the mashed pumpkin.
  3. Spoon into muffin tins and bake at 400° for 20 minutes. Remove and allow to cool before eating.


I hope you all have…

A frightful, delightful,
Wary, scary,
Spooky, kooky,
Creaky, freaky,
Terrifyingly sweet and most of all…


My jack-o-lantern this year, featuring The Bride of Frankenstein.
