Carlty Bryer's Wicked Good Gingerbread Cake Baked in a Pumpkin


My dad had been raving about this unique gingerbread cake recipe that he had found in his Wilson Farm's cookbook so when he came out for a visit last week, that was one of the first things on his list to make. Luckily for you and me, he made it just in time to share before our Thanksgiving festivities begin. You are absolutely going to want to try this one. It is very easy to make, the moist gingerbread cake paired with the pumpkin tastes unbelievable, and the presentation is wicked unique. Topped with a scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream this gingerbread cake baked in a pumpkin will definitely give you rockstar status at your next gathering.

The Golden Nugget Gourmet is about sharing with you must have recipes, the food is my first priority, and then hopefully having a few great photos as well. When my dad made this cake, it was early evening so the lighting wasn't great in my kitchen and I wasn't able to get a true quality shot. But I want you to have this recipe in time for the quickly approaching holidays, so here it is, and hopefully down the road I can add some better pics. Better yet, I would love if you share a picture that you took after making this recipe and I'll add it to this post.


For those of you that have picky eaters, this recipe was Terp Tyke approved :)

Martha Stewart's Method for Roasting a Perfect Turkey

It was Thanksgiving 2011 when I discovered Martha Stewart's method for roasting a perfect turkey. I had always had pretty good success with my turkeys in the past but had never been able to achieve this type of perfection. The skin was crisp and gorgeously browned and the meat remained tender and juicy. The addition of white wine helped to produce a rich gravy from the pan drippings. Whether this is your first time cooking a turkey, or you are a seasoned home cook, you are going to want to save this golden nugget for the upcoming holidays.
