The problem when baking anything with pumpkin is that my dog likes pumpkin. The beagle never gets people food, except for pumpkin. He is a pumpkin monster. That means when I open the can of pumpkin purée, he comes running. He got to lick the spoon.
When I made this cake before, I made it with the honey cream cheese frosting in the recipe. I didn't really like that frosting, so I made a simple confectioners' sugar glaze this time. That was better. It doesn't need any icing at all, but I felt compelled to put some on there since it's called a cake. Here's the cake last time with honey cream cheese frosting:
I like this pumpkin spice cake a lot. I'll probably make it again in a few days.
