The Pin Junkie: Pumpkin Spice Cake

Pumpkin Spice Cake

Over the weekend, we had family visiting and a big dinner planned.  I was in charge of making dessert.  Pin Junkie Jr. wanted homemade apple pie and Mr. Pin Junkie suggested pumpkin spice cake.  I decided to go with pumpkin spice cake because I'd never made it before.  A quick search on Pinterest gave me a couple different recipes to choose from.  I chose this one and it was fabulous!  This pumpkin spice cake recipe makes a rich, moist cake complete with a cream cheese frosting and it's full of fragrant spices that smell really good while it bakes.

I had a lot of fun making this cake too.  I could have easily made a sheet cake, but decided to go all out and make a layered cake.  It was my very first three layer cake!  I wasn't very happy with the way the frosting looked, but the chopped walnuts on the side hid a lot of imperfections.  And really, who cares how it looks when it tastes this good!  I used to think that chocolate cake was my favorite, but after tasting this cake, I'm not so sure!

  1. Dear Bonnie, I totally agree!! A few imperfections, "who cares!!" when it tastes great. The imperfections give it character.
    I can see how moist it must have been and delicious. This is a perfect cake to serve on the holidays. Blessings dear. Catherine

  25. A cake this moist is bound to be a little tricky as a 3 layer but it looks wonderful. I want to stick a fork through the monitor and scoop up a big bite! Spice cake and pumpkin are 2 of my favorites so I'll to trying this recipe soon.
