Pumpkin Pie Pound Cake

I waited as long as I could but I mean it is the almost the middle of September, right? Pumpkin is everywhere! We bought about 6 autumn scented candles form Bath & Body works a month ago (they’re our favorite). So today I bring you Pumpkin Pie Pound Cake. You can pick your jaw up off of the floor now. I know it looks amazing, it also tastes amazing. If you love spice cake you’ll love this pumpkin pie pound cake. If you love a good smelling house you’ll also love baking this pumpkin pie pound cake. Around the 30 minute mark your kitchen will be filled with the scents of autumn. I’m going to be honest… that’s what I was most excited for. I love lighting candles but I really wanted the real thing smelling up the house. So what are you waiting for? MAKE THIS NOW!

This recipe was so fun to make, but even more fun to photograph. Believe it or not… this cake was rather photogenic. When I was drizzling on the glaze I was a little worried that this whole thing would be disastrous, but I’m in love. After complaining about the super warm weather the other day it seemed to listen to me. It looks like today might be one of the last warm days for awhile (thank goodness). I can’t handle warm weather. I would rather live inside with the air conditioning all summer long.

This Pumpkin Pie Pound Cake makes it feel like autumn even though it still is technically summer. Tomorrow we’re supposed to get a huge rain storm. Rain storms are one of my favorite things so I’m really looking forward to it.

I really like iced tea but for the fall I’m thinking of starting to drink warm tea. I’m not sure which brands to try or not to try but if I happen to find one that I really love I’ll make sure to let you all know.

    I held out as long as I could, but I’ve already baked two pumpkin loaf batches and a pumpkin flan. There’s something about pumpkin that says, “It’s FALL!”; more so than apple. Anyway, this CAKE! I have to make it!

    I am baking this now and coming across a small issue. The recipe says to bake it for 75 minutes or until toothpick is clean. Mine has only baked for 40 minutes and the toothpick is coming out clean. I’m concerned since that’s such a huge separation from your bake time.

      Hmm.. that is quite a difference. When you touch it does the cake spring back? If when you shake it a little, it doesn’t move you should be fine. All oven temperatures do vary but mine usually runs hot. I would bake it a little longer to be on the safe side. Try using a wooden skewer to test it if you have one.

    I was just wondering if something can be used in the place of the apple juice. I failed to pick some up at the store and was trying to avoid another trip. Thanks so much!
