You Need This Pumpkin…


Hey, y’all!

I’m going to share a pumpkin recipe. You should know that it comes highly recommended, too.


Well, I get a lot of ribbing around here because of all of the love that I give to pumpkin.
These busters. Well, anyway, they will not turn down cake — even though they are not as excited as they would be if it were chocolate, for instance.

This week, I brought one of these cakes to Bible Study and I made an additional one for the family.

Today, Jon went over to the cake plate and, seeing it empty, said, “I can’t believe that I’m saying this, but I sure do wish that there was some of that pumpkin cake left. There was something really awesome about the moist, big crumbs.”

And, that was all I needed to decide it was time to make more. Happy!

The recipe for Pumpkin Cake with Browned Butter Icing is here on Shutterbean. I made it as it is written, only I omitted all spices except for cinnamon (which I increased slightly) and I also added about 1/3 teaspoon dried ginger. Also, although the nuts would be fabulous, I’m sure, I didn’t do them out of laziness.

It really is delightful….and as easy to make as falling off a log. So, remember it if you need some pumpkin. I personally need pumpkin all the time. So, it’s on my list.

Now, even though it is late on Friday, I think that we might need some songs about dancing.

So, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros with “Man on Fire” will fill the bill nicely, I think.

Also, one about no worries and putting your dancing shoes on — if you get the chance. Thanks for that, Langhorne Slim!

And let’s not forget Louis Prima. Jump, Jive and Wail!

Okay. Lets make the chance for dancing shoes and pumpkin cake.

Sounds like a plan to me! Happy Friday!
