Pumpkin or Apple?

Are you a pumpkin eater or more of an apple fan?  Could one person enjoy both?  The answer is an astounding “Yes”.  I, however, am not a pumpkin person, and am resoundly in the apple camp.

It is around this time of year that apples are plentiful, and pumpkin recipes abound.  I decided to switch things up, and for the first time ever, I made apple butter.  I followed this recipe, from Detoxinista, for a no sugar added apple butter.  Oh my goodness, it was delicious.


I first tried it on a piece of toast.  Delicious!


Step 2 of my plan was to sub the apple butter for pumpkin in a recipe.  My first attempt was an absolute success!  I followed this recipe from breakfast.about.com.

Based on that success, I am eager to try again, maybe with a quick bread.

Are you in Camp Pumpkin or Camp Apple?  Do you enjoy both?  What is your favorite fall recipe?
