Pumpkin Spice Pound Cake


A yummy twist on a classic cake. All the butteriness that you love about a pound cake and add pumpkin, spice and everything nice.
Who else is as excited that it is October and Halloween is now only days away, 29 days when this post goes up?

Like I said in previous post, I love pumpkin spice anything. I've already made Pumpkin Spice Extract, Pumpkin Spice Syrup and Slow Cooker Pumpkin Butter, which I used for this recipe (click on the name for link to the recipe). I already have so many ideas for more recipes for the next two months.

For me, this might be the best cake for the season of pumpkin spice. It's light, spongy but dense.
