What says "autumn" better than something pumpkin?


This pound cake is ridiculously easy and since it uses oil instead of butter, no waiting for butter to soften!

Rich and spicy, it's the perfect accompaniment to a hot cup of coffee or a cold glass of milk.


Fall Festival Pumpkin Pound Cake
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 - 15 oz can of pumpkin -OR- 1 3/4 cups pumpkin puree
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
