Cinnamon Crumb Pumpkin Espresso Cake? Completely.

So I’m studying Carolyn G. Heilbrun- The Last Gift of Time. I learn a chapter on memory- and the seduction of nostalgia (a favorite subject of mine, you may remember). And I learn this …

“Each time these of us in our final many years permit a reminiscence to happen, we neglect to take a look at what’s in entrance of us, on the new concepts and pleasures we’d, if firmly within the current, encounter and revel in.”

Carolyn (in her seventies when she wrote this book) urges us to remain current within the right here and now as we age, and never drift into the psychological lure of nostalgia and recollections. I wholeheartedly agree. I really like studying one thing new- each day- turning to not an assumption, a perception or a behavior, however towards the fun of a brand new ability, new know-how, new e book, recipe, strolling path … you get the concept.

I do know. It isn’t simple. And sure, the plain reality is, it has been a monumentally powerful 12 months, due to the pandemic. For folks all over the place, of all ages and persuasions. We’re- truly- one another’s keeper within the harrowing period of Covid19.

So Carolyn’s message appears much more essential.

Preserving myself open, engaged within the right here and now means retaining issues recent. Letting go of the outdated, the stale previous, the so-called good outdated days. As a result of pretty much as good as they have been, they don’t seem to be now. And as unhealthy as some days might have been, at present will be completely different. Now’s new. And on this spirit, Steve and I raided the pantry and baked a pumpkin crumb cake.

As a result of cake. For breakfast. Now.

Fairly candy.

A slice of gluten free pumpkin crumb cake

The pumpkin and the eggs are the moisture on this cake recipe. It’s not a skinny batter, in actual fact it resembles muffin batter greater than normal cake batter. In case your higher finally ends up too stiff since you reside in a drier local weather, chances are you’ll add a tablespoon or two of soy milk or rice milk.

I made this cake with recent natural eggs, however I’ve all the time had fantastic luck baking with Ener-G Egg Replacer (combine up the equal of three eggs).

I’m experimenting with a mix of starches now, so I used a mix of tapioca starch and cornstarch. I feel it created a lighter cake.
