Fabulous Pumpkin Desserts and Pumpkin Cake too!!
The other day I got on a Pinterest sidetrack and got sucked into several yummy pumpkin desserts. It then got my creative juices flowing and so off to bake I went. I decided a pumpkin cake would be good so I decided to just adapt a recipe out of the recipe box to fit my mood. I was impressed with the results this time around and Mr. SMSL approved too so we have a keeper!!
2 Cups flour ( I used 1 cup of white flour and 1 cup almond flour)
2 t cinnamon
1 t baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 sticks of butter
1 cup sugar ( I used 3/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup lower calorie sugar)
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 can of pumpkin pie filling
I started with the pumpkin pie filling, 1 egg and then melted the butter in the microwave. I then added the dry ingredients all in the same bowl till it looked like a well mixed cake batter. Then I poured it into the pan ( A Pampered Chef Torte Pan but I only have 1 of them somehow) and baked it for about 30 minutes. Then let it cool on the counter for a couple hours.
Then I made the topping after I cooled the cake I flipped it upside down on a plate and got working on the frosting. The frosting was a stick of butter a little bit of sugar (less than a 1/4 of a cup) and whipped it all together and placed it on the top of the cake. Then snapped a pcicture and sent it to my husband and told him I had to be his favorite wife of the day. He wanted to know what it was but I kept him in suspense all day but as soon as he got home he wanted some. He of course wanted it before supper but we did eat first.
