Pumpkin Cake

spiced pumpkin cake from white mountain cake 1

If you have been following me for a while, you may already know that of my love for all things fall! I literally love EVERYTHING about this season! Comfy sweatshirts, beautifully arranged mums sitting on porches, and especially pumpkin! Every year I get excited for the announcement that Dunkin Donuts is finally serving their pumpkin flavored coffees! Just give me this pumpkin cake and some Dunkin Donuts pumpkin flavored coffee and I’ll be a happy camper! A few weeks ago I was hungry for pumpkin cake and decided to turn one of my favorite recipes, White Mountain Cake, into a pumpkin cake recipe! The recipe for White Mountain Cake came from an old family friend who went home to be with Jesus years ago. It seemed fitting to turn this cake with great memories attached to it into a cake for my one of my favorite seasons… though I love Christmas, too!

With the texture of a pumpkin roll, and spiced just right, this cake screams fall! This cake is very moist. When mixing the cake, be sure to not over mix, or it will end up a little on the sticky side. I loved making this cake because it does not require any icing. Tons of whipped cream is all it needs… and maybe a sprinkle of cinnamon! Now, if you wanted to make some icing for it, I’m sure you can find something delicious on the internet. I think a cream cheese icing would pair nicely with this cake.
I definitely plan on spending my weekend chowing down on this yummy cake with a nice, hot cup of coffee!


Pumpkin Pie Frappe




Pumpkin Frape

Pumpkin Pie Frappe

Pumpkin season starts next month and I am Kicking it off with my Pumpkin Pie Frappe. My sister and I are pumpkin fanatics. We patiently wait all summer long for pumpkin season to come rolling in and when it does we are usually the first ones in line for some sort of pumpkin treat. Usually we start our long awaited pumpkin season out with a pumpkin coffee and a pumpkin muffin from Dunkin Donuts. I’m actually drooling now as I am typing this. I think they will start serving all their pumpkin treats the first week of September. I can’t wait!

Sugar spice and everything nice is the name of the game with this recipe. Pumpkin and vanilla ice cream add sweetness and a pinch of cloves for the spice. It tastes just like my moms homemade pumpkin pie. It is basically fall in a cup and the perfect treat for September when you have fall fever but it is still hot outside. I made these Pumpkin Pie Frappes a few weeks ago for my family and received rave reviews. My sister and I slurped this fall treat down like there was no tomorrow. I actually drank one before I went to their house.. and the day before. Hey! Quality control, right? =P  I am blessed to have such an amazing family that is always willing to test all my crazy recipe inventions, both the good and the bad. They give me lots of constructive criticism which I have always been grateful for. They are my biggest fans and I can always count on them for support.
