Fall Desserts with a Twist

At farmers’ markets, produce bins are brimming with apples, figs, pears and pumpkins. Here we feature creative dessert recipes inspired by the season’s bounty, such as an apple cake studded with raisins and seasoned with cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. A creamy rice pudding is topped with crisp Asian pears accented by spicy fresh ginger. And try our chocolate cake that’s exceptionally moist, thanks to a secret ingredient: grated raw pumpkin.
