  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
  • dash ground clove
  • dash ground pepper

    I make this recipe about a dozen times every fall. We like to deliver them to the neighbors and my kids’ teachers. It is my absolute favorite recipe!

    Delish, I used spray for the pan. The tiny cakes had a glazed/shiny look. Very easy recipe to follow, had everything on hand. Used large glass measuring cups to mix. I placed the tiny cakes in foil cupcake holders, set them on a teaspoon of the icing. Very pretty.

    Using the listed ingredients and carefully following directions on my first 2 attempts resulted in too much overflow in the pan while baking. For my 3rd attempt, I increased the flour amount to 3/4 cup and decreased the baking soda and powder to 1/4 teaspoon of each. The cakelets were baked for 15 minutes and turned out of the pan beautifully. Very nice flavor, especially with the glaze. they stay fresh for several days, too.

    Hi! Thank you for your review and sharing your recipe updates. We will look into this and retest. Thanks!

    I think the recipe is flawed in the quantity of dry ingredients to wet. The resulting batter has more fluidity than typical pancake batter and flows up and all over the top of the pan while baking. The baking soda and powder flavor is also distinct with only 1/2 cup of flour. In my experience, the recipe needs to be reworked or edited due to undesirable results.

    Delicious, simple, and impressive looking. Comes together fast. The cake is delicious and the nutmeg glaze puts it over the top. I brushed the pans with butter and then floured them rather than using spray–they released beautifully.

    OH WOW!!! So delicious! I was worried I had messed up the batter somehow because it was so liquidy – but I filled my autumn cakelet pan and baked them anyway. So glad I did: They are amazing! And I haven’t even made the glaze to go on them yet (I overfilled the cavities – was worried the liquid wasn’t near the top enough to get turkey feathers and full acorn topping so I filled them to just 1/16″ under the edge of cavity design – it expanded over the top and into each other as it baked so definitely don’t need to fill so high next time. But bonus: I got to trim all that excess off before inverting pan to cooling rack and I’ve been snacking on the delicious cake while waiting for them to cool so I can glaze them)! Definitely making this recipe again (and again and again and again!!!).

    This is delicious! Keep in mind it makes 1 pan so you’re only getting a few mini cakes. Double or triple the recipe if you want enough for more than 4 people. It’s amazing – soft, fluffy and absolutely delish. The nutmeg glaze is a must! The cake soaks it up….oh yummm. It’s also not a make-ahead. It’s easy to assemble, easy and quick to bake but you need to eat it once you make it as the cake is very moist and it doesn’t last well. I will be making this over and over and over this season!

    Super easy and a hit with all. It is my go too fall dessert.

    First let me say, the flavor of this recipe is outstanding. Spicy and delicious and I will try it again just in case I mismeasured somehow, which I don’t think I did. Unfortunately, the batter overflowed the Autumn Delights pan and ran all over my oven. Make sure to place a baking sheet underneath. I assumed this recipe was developed for this pan and would fit. It also did not release cleanly. I got indistinct blobs rather than recognizable leaves and pumpkins. Make sure to prep the pan!
