Hey, it’s finally Halloween again! October-November is like the best time of the year, first it’s Halloween and then Thanksgiving. I’m in nyc and will join the big parade that starts at Canal Street and goes along 6th Ave every year. As a neon glowing jellyfish:). But first I will make these amazing pumpkin pie pancakes, Elisabeth made them a few days ago when we shot this post at the studio in Stockholm and I promise they are delicious! /Susanna

  • 90 g sugar
  • 100 g soft butter
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 orange, finely grated zest and juice

Whisk together the ingredients and simmer over medium heat until thickened. Pour the curd in a bowl directly, so that it does not become too hot in the bottom. Cool it and pour it into a piping bag.

Pumpkin and orange ice cream

Split the vanilla pod lengthways and scrape out the vanilla pod. Boil the milk and cream with the vanilla pod and seeds into a stainless steel saucepan. Whisk egg yolks and sugar fluffy. Pour the hot cream mixture over the yolks and pour everything back into the pan and stir. Simmer the mixture to 185˚F/85˚C or until it starts to thicken. Remove from the heat, it should not boil. Add the pumpkin puree and orange zest and juice. Pour into a bowl and let cool. Run it in the ice cream machine. Swirl the curd into the ice cream and sprinkle ground cinnamon over.

We used these pretty black bowls, that stays cool if you hold them under cold tap water before serving, for our ice cream. You can also write on them with chalk. From Finnish Magisso (magisso.com).
