Pie is usually a hot favorite during Thanksgiving — pumpkin pie, to be precise. But this Thanksgiving, how about making some delicious pumpkin pie chocolate brownies for a change? To make this delightful dessert, first, get started with the brownies. Make the batter ready, preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and pour it into the baking tray. Next, make the pumpkin pie layer. For this, create a puree out of the pumpkin, eggs, pumpkin spice, condensed milk, and salt. Gently pour it over the layer of brownie batter. Bake for 50 minutes, and you’re good to go. To make this more interesting, you can add a layer of chocolate ganache.

Very few cakes taste even better the next day — the apple walnut cake is one of them. Moist in itself, with the perfect amount of crunchiness and rich apple-cinnamon flavor, there’s no wonder that the apple walnut cake is a popular dessert. To make this, first, preheat the oven to the usual 350 degrees. Then, run baking soda, flour, salt, and cinnamon powder through a sift. In another bowl, cut apples and add white sugar. Take a larger bowl and whisk vanilla, oil, eggs, and brown sugar together. First, add the apples and white sugar, and then add the mixture of flour. Gently add walnuts too. The batter is ready! Pour into a pan, and bake it in the oven for 45 minutes. Allow it to cool, and enjoy!

We all know that the upside-down pineapple cake is the most popular, but this Thanksgiving, let’s make an upside-down cake with a difference: using peaches! To get started, first pour some melted butter into a round baking pan. Next, generously sprinkle some brown sugar on the pan. Cut your peach slices and arrange them in a single layer. Keep it aside. You will have to whisk cream sugar, butter, egg, vanilla, flour, baking powder, and salt in another large bowl. Add the batter gently to the pan without disturbing the peaches. Bake this in a preheated oven for 50 minutes. Once done, flip the cake over quickly and serve the upside-down peach cake warm! The peachy aftertaste will leave everyone wanting more and more.

There’s a reason why it’s called the ultimate autumn pecan berry pie — the buttery richness of pecans, coupled with the fruity rush of flavors from the berries and the warmth that you enjoy on your first bite all of it contributes to a wholesome experience. The best part about this recipe is that you can make your pie the usual way — you just have to add the berries and pecan nuts to this. You can also make a blueberry compote and serve it on the side with the pie for some extra fruity richness. To make your blueberry compote, you need a cup of blueberries, sugar, lemon juice, and water. First, cook half a cup of the blueberries and the rest of the ingredients on medium heat for about ten minutes. Then, add the remaining blueberries and let them cook for a few more minutes. Your blueberry compote is ready! Enjoy the pie with this lovely wonder!

It is safe to say that pumpkins are the star of the show during Thanksgiving! Pumpkins add texture as well as taste to any recipe that they are added to.

Then, add pumpkin, vanilla, whole milk, and maple syrup and beat them with a mixer until they’ve formed a smooth consistency. Take another bowl and start whipping heavy cream. Keep the mousse jars ready, add the pumpkin mixture to the bottom, and top it with whipped cream. Sprinkle some cinnamon powder on top, and everyone will love the pumpkin spice mousse!
