Happy Friday to everyone!  The week-end is approaching.  Do you have some enjoyable activities planned?

Earlier, I mentioned that the recipe for the Pumpkin Cake had been posted on the blog.  To make it easier for you to have it - if you want it - I will post it again here.

1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoon soda
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 cups pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon salt

- Mix oil, sugar, and eggs together well.  Then add remaining ingredients.  Bake in greased tube pan for 1 hour at 350 degrees F.

1 (3-oz.) package cream cheese
1/2 stick butter
- Cream together, then add:
1/2 box confectioners sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
-Spread on cake; decorate with pecan halves (1/2 c.), if desired.  Chopped pecans could also be sprinkled on the top of the cake, omitting the pecan halves, if you wish.

Everybody had a pecan half!

I usually store the cake in the refrigerator.  This recipe came from the newspaper of a town where we lived in 1972.

I believe this is actually my favorite season of the year!  Well, I find reasons for other seasons to be considered "favorites," too.:-)  Anytime we are able to have friends and family around and share food has to be a "favorite time.":-)  I have seen many blogs featuring some lovely seasonal decor.  The next post will show a bit of what we have here.

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.

  8. Beautiful cake and best part, it actually doesn't sound too hard to put together. Yes, I am so lazy. -giggggles-

    Oh I love Autumn. I love when time goes back to Nature's Time. I enjoy earlier darkness, because I feel it is cozy. Mmmmm, yes. Love this time of year.

    Mmmm, well, not the dark, rainy, damp, rainy, dark, rainy (chuckle) days, so much. But, the sun is shining today!
