It's spring cleaning time, and today the pantry was on my list. I found a can of pumpkin a week from expiring. Even though spring in Florida means temps in the 80's, when I saw that can of pumpkin, I just started craving something that tasted of autumn and reminded me of cooler temps. I made this recipe pretty much as-is, I just substituted pumpkin pie spice for all the spices listed, as that is what I always have on hand. This cake is so moist and flavorful! The pumpkin flavor really comes through. I glazed it with a maple syrup/powdered sugar mixture, maple and pumpkin are just so good together! I only have one small criticism, the cake itself, without the glaze, is a little on the too sweet side. It won't stop us from eating it though, it's really that good and nearly close to perfect! Next time though, I will cut back on the sugar a bit(1/2 cup maybe?) especially if I frost/glaze it. Thanks so much for the recipe and a taste of autumn! :)
