Since winter doesn't officially start this year until December 21, we're in for a nice long autumn (if only Mother Nature would cooperate). A glorious autumn dessert that's good enough for breakfast -- which is, in fact, exactly when I ate it -- is the smooth, creamy and spicy pumpkin creme caramel offered at the WheatFields Bakery Cafe at 904 Vermont in Lawrence, Kansas.


It's sex on a plate -- seriously. Light on the pumpkin, this supple flan drips with an amber caramel sauce and is surprisingly fragrant with cinnamon and nutmeg. The color is the shade of newly fallen oak leaves, and the texture isn't flawlessly satin, since there are tiny flecks of candied ginger blended in. With a cup of espresso, it's a divine breakfast. And an even better dessert.
