I love the Fall and this here is just one of the reasons. I get to eat pumpkin!! I LOVE pumpkin pie, cookies, bread, cake.... the list goes on and on. Except for soup. I just can't get into pumpkin soup. Maybe I just haven't had a good bowl yet... Anyway, I love this pumpkin cake and couldn't wait to share it with you. I hope you love it too. :)
