In this house, we’re a little mixed on the pumpkin spice craze. Mark loves a good pumpkin cake, but I could easily go without this seemingly favorite fall treat. I’m perfectly OK adding pumpkin to other delicious treats, though. Desserts like Chocolate Pumpkin Fudge Bundt Cake.
Now, I really had no reason to make a cake this week, other then I hadn’t baked much for a while. The kids have probably been feeling a tad deprived of their after-school treats as I usually sent them to the kitchen for a cup of water or a handful of carrots. The situation needed to be rectified.
