Pumpkin Dream Cake with Cinnamon Maple Cream Cheese Frosting
The Fall season is all about cakes like this recipe for Pumpkin Dream Cake with Cinnamon Maple Cream Cheese Frosting. Pumpkins are fresh in the fall and are all about baking with warm spices and richer foods than we have enjoyed throughout the summer months. This cake really celebrates the pumpkin. It is a big cake that creates three layers if you make it in round pans. Do try it this way. There is also plenty of frosting in the recipe here that will give you plenty to put in the middle layers of this cake. And the frosting is fabulous, too.
This recipe, including both the cake and the frosting, are made entirely from scratch, ensuring a great outcome. The website photos show just how attractive the pumpkin looks in the cake, as well, and what color it creates in the cake. The pumpkin color showcases beautifully against the soft white icing. And the flavors are terrific too. Maple is a perfect complement to pumpkin, and vanilla enhances every dish where it is found. This is also a surprisingly easy cake to make, and would turn out best when you use a mixer to blend the ingredients. There are times when hand mixing can bring about superior results, but here you want to use a machine. Get help from the little hands around you by letting them hand you the eggs, and taste testing throughout (especially the maple syrup).
This is a great recipe that makes a big cake. It will likely easily feed 12 people, big and flavorful servings. So invite friends (or save some for tomorrow). Serve this cake at room temperature when the pumpkin flavor will be at its best. Enjoy. Find out how to make this recipe and many others at the website, The Novice Chef.
