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 :)

Moe's Famous Queso (Copycat Recipe)

After my dad retired from over 40 years of paper mill management, he did a short stint working at Moe's Southwest Grill before he and my mom moved down here to Maryland. After working a shift, he would often bring home Moe's famous queso and heat up their fresh tortilla chips in the microwave. I started craving Moe's queso, this unique white cheese dip packed an addicting heat that I had never had at any other Mexican restaurant. I started searching the web looking for the best copycat recipe and found the closest replica at  Seeded at the Table . I think it's right on the money!

I'm Loving Lidl's Sauces and Marinades

Last Saturday we packed up and headed to our borrowed beach house for the summer.  Before heading out, I stocked up on a bunch of Lidl's Sauces and Marinades for quick and easy meals at the beach. Lidl has a great variety to choose from, and look at the prices!!! So far we have tried Ya Mon Jerk Style Marinade, To-Kill-A-Lime Sauce, Nashville Style Barbecue Sauce, and Bailando Habanero Mango Sauce. All have been bold and flavorful. Scott especially enjoys the Nashville Style Spicy Barbecue Sauce, which definitely has a kick to it.  On our first night I served up this grilled steak marinated in the To-Kill-A-Lime Sauce, with a refreshing Watermelon Cucumber Salad, and fresh grilled corn. So good!  The next night I used the Nashville Style Spicy Barbecue Sauce for BBQ Chicken.  This spicy BBQ chicken went great with grilled fingerling potatoes and a chilled Blackberry Goat Cheese Salad. The then I turned up the heat even more with the Bailando Habanero Mango Sauce. .  It reminds me

Cottage Pie with tips from Chef Gordon Ramsay

Damn this dish is delicious! I was planning to serve the leftovers tonight but there aren't any, the fam devoured it. Next time I will double the batch!  I used Chef Gordon Ramsay's recipe for shepherd's pie, simply switching out ground lamb for ground beef. I would love to hear from my friends across the pond, and if they have a family favorite recipes or tips, but for me this was the best cottage pie I have ever had. Scroll down to the bottom for the recipe. Ramsey offered several tips to make the perfect cottage pie. First grating the carrot and onion versus chopping them. Seasoning the mash with fresh rosemary and thyme. He highlights in the video "It's all about the mince." Pouring in several "glugs" of red wine and adding splashes of Worcestershire sauce created a steamy sauce that filled the house with a "get in my belly" aroma.  The next tip was life changing. Use a potato press for the mashed potato topping. I had never used one be
