HAPPY THANKSGIVING!



HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
The Brown County Food Staff would like to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!
Here is a recipe for a two layer Pumpkin Cake is topped off perfectly with a fluffy cream cheese frosting and chopped pecans. The cake is spiced with a combination of ginger and cinnamon. This moist, delicious cake would make a fabulous dessert for your Thanksgiving menu, or bake it for a fall event.

What You'll Need

  • For the Cake:
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (9 ounces)
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger (ground)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups pumpkin puree (or cooked mashed pumpkin, canned is fine)
  • For the Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 1/4 cup butter, room temperature
  • 8 ounces cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 1 pound powdered sugar (about 3 3/4 cups before sifting)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

How to Make It:

  1. Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans. Heat the oven to 350° F (180° C/Gas 4).
  2. Combine sugar, vegetable oil, and eggs in a large mixing bowl; mix until smooth and well blended.
  3. Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl and then stir to blend. Add the dry ingredients to the eggs and oil mixture and beat until well blended. Add the pumpkin puree and blend well.
  4. Pour the batter into two greased and floured 9-inch round layer cake pans.
  1. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes.
  2. Cool in the pans on racks for about 10 minutes and then turn out onto racks to cool.
  3. Frost the pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting (directions below) and sprinkle with the chopped pecans.
Cream Cheese Frosting
  1. Sift the confectioners' sugar into a bowl.
  2. In a mixing bowl with an electric mixer, beat the 1/4 cup of butter and cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
  3. Add the sifted confectioners' sugar and 2 teaspoons of vanilla; beat until smooth.
Make-Ahead Tip Bake the cake and cool the layers on the rack. Move the cooled cake layers to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Freeze the layers until solid and then wrap in plastic wrap and foil. Freeze for up to 2 to 3 months. Remove the cake from the freezer, unwrap it, and then thaw, frost, and serve.

School Breakfast facts



School Breakfast facts
A great breakfast program is offered at school every day! Here are some fun facts about school breakfast:
  • It’s easy! Instead of running around in the morning trying to make sure your children eat a healthy meal, let us do the work. They can get a great breakfast at school, and there will be no dishes for you to wash!
  • It’s affordable! If qualified, your child may be able to get breakfast at a reduced price or for free. If your child already eats a free or reduced price lunch, they automatically qualify for a free or reduced price breakfast.
  • It’s tasty! Schools now have more variety to choose from when deciding what to offer your children for breakfast.  Request a menu so you can view what your child may be eating at school.
  • It’s good for the brain! Research suggests that not having breakfast can affect children’s intellectual performance (CDC).


School Breakfast – Good for Kids and Good for Parents!



School Breakfast – Good for Kids and Good for Parents!
For parents with busy schedules, it can be hard to make sure that kids are eating a healthy breakfast before they go to school in the morning. Sometimes children aren’t hungry right after waking up, and it’s hard to find food they like to eat that is also healthy. Also, some kids refuse breakfast at home, but are hungry when they arrive at school. Fortunately, we have a great breakfast program for all students, and it’s available at school every day. If morning meals are difficult for your family, let the Brown County School Breakfast Program help you out!
