Sounds nummy! Too bad I'm the only one who likes pumpkin cake (hey.... that would mean that if I did make it, I would definitely get some around here ! Ha!).

I'm from Massachusetts, and it's much cooler down here, too. It's so weird to see people walking around with long pants and long sleeves. Gotta love New England weather! :)

What is with all the recipes today? Help a pregnant woman out...no more food!!!! I'm already hungry.

Oh, wait, I just remembered my applesauce in my purse. That will have to do!

Susanne said...

Sounds yummy! I'm going to try it but not today because it's hot here today. The next cold and cloudy one.

I made this cake today using your recipe, and it was A HUGE HIT!!! My Coty said that he would give it 4 out of 5 yums!! (He said it didn't have chocolate in it, so he had to take off a yum...hehe)

But it is the most moist cake, and I love it. I have to admit, I hate pumpkin pie, but I love this. And I think I may have to use this recipe for Thanksgiving..hehe


Kori said...

Hey there. So the hubs got his special surprise package today. He was thrilled and overjoyed. He told me to tell you thank you so much. They are delicious. He let me try one, yes one slice. And from that one slice, that one little taste I could tell they were made with much love and sent with plenty of blessings.

Thanks again so much. A simple gift made from the heart sometimes is an answer to all things. God bless and much love.
