Pumpkin Cake

BlogHer Original Post

Happy birthday to me! If I was going to have a birthday cake, which I'm not, I'd be happy with a pumpkin cake. Not one shaped like a pumpkin or frosted in orange goo, just one that tastes like pumpkin and nutmeg. As someone smartly commented in the Pumpkin Spice Latte thread, it is the nutmeg that is the "crack".

Alanna's Thanksgiving cake would be good. It's a little like TW's Witchy Poo Cake that I really really like. I can, however, guarantee you that I will never eat Alanna's pumpkin fruit cake. Fruit cake makes me queasy, even if it has pumpkin in it.

I don't generally like frosting or icing on cakes but this pumpkin cake with caramel icing looks really good to me. Sorry we missed this drawing for a free cookbook but the recipe looks good, apples, spices and pumpkin - yum! This is interesting, pumpkin and yellow cake mix. I also don't love chocolate but have to admit, this is a pretty pound cake.

Do you have a favorite pumpkin cake recipe?
