Today is the last day of the Virtual Progressive Thanksgiving dinner. I had fun and here is a recap of the weeks recipes.
Mustard Crusted Turkey from Food for my Family, Bread Stuffing with Seasonal Fruits and Herbs from Simple Bites, Apples and Cranberries baked in a Pumpkin from Eat at Home, Ultimate Slow Cooked Mashed Potatoes and Slow Cooker Brown-Sugared Baby Carrots from Moi, and Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle from Hoosier Homemade.
Today is also the last day of Thanksgiving week at Real Mom Kitchen. I hope you have found some inspiration for your meal. Since it is the last day, what else would we end with but dessert. Now I decided to be a little unconventional this year and do a cake instead of pie. However, it still has all of those fabulous fall flavors. It is a caramel apple gingerbread cake. I got the recipe from Lucky Leaf. This dessert is so simple but it will look like to took a lot of effort to make. All you need is a gingerbread cake mix, a can of apple pie filling, caramel ice cream topping, and sweetened whipped cream. So easy and so yummy.
Here are some other yummy dessert recipes that would be perfect for Thanksgiving:
