Brrr...

It's cold...  Time to bring out the jackets, for sure!  It's a gorgeous, but obviously chilly day in the Ozarks.

It was a pleasure having the owners of Longevity Farms stay with us this past weekend.  If your ever in Shawnee, Kansas you should stop by and see them.   They grow a huge variety of organic fruits and vegetables.  What a neat couple!


I found this wonderful recipe for Pumpkin Spice Pound Cake and thought I would share it with you all.  It's one of the BEST that I've ever found...


Pumpkin Spice Pound Cake
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened, plus additional for greasing bundt pan
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour plus additional for dusting pan
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoons ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups canned solid-pack pumpkin (from a 15-oz can; not pie filling)
3/4 cup well-shaken buttermilk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs

For glaze:
2 T butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1-3 T cream or milk

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray bunt pan generously with cooking spray. Combine all ingredients and beat with mixer for several minutes.   Bake for 40-50 minutes.

Cream Cheese Icing


8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
powdered sugar (to consistency)
Vanilla
French Vanilla creamer
dash of nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove

(Beat together until creamy...)

Once it's cool, drizzle cream cheese icing over the top and sprinkle with toasted pecans. Related Posts with Thumbnails YUM!!!
