Our home is a house divided. Over pumpkin, or more precisely, everyone’s love or hatred of pumpkin pie. And while I love pumpkin pie, I can also appreciate my family members’ point of view. I dedicate pumpkin spice cake recipe to those in my family who detest pumpkin pie.
I use pumpkin butter in this recipe. Pumpkin butter is a delicious mix of cooked pureed pumpkin and spices. It produces a lovely cake with a very mild pumpkin flavor that reminds me of a spice cake. The pumpkin butter makes this a fast and easy recipe to throw together because it already contains the spices. Great holiday recipe for Thanksgiving.
Combine this cake with our Maple Buttercream with chopped pecans between the layers.
No one in my family argues when I bring this cake to the table.
Well…at least not about pumpkin.
