Maple Icing Pumpkin Cake!

It is that time of the year again when you find “pumpkin everything.” I use this time of the year to make all those yummy pumpkin desserts and this Maple Icing Pumpkin cake was a huge hit.

This was a simple recipe to make and any excuse to throw pecans on top of anything and I am doing it.  I keep saying that I want to be a rule breaker and serve pumpkin any time of the year.  I guess we have to have the excitement of the fall season and pumpkin is part of it.

 Pumpkin Cake-Maple Icing (3 of 12)

I made this dessert for a few of my girl friends last month.  Every time I make a dessert, I have to leave some of it behind for the family.  I took half of the pumpkin cake to the girls and the other half stayed at home.

I did manage to get a piece that evening and I was lucky enough to have one for breakfast the next morning.  Good thing I had it for breakfast, other wise I would have never had another piece.  This one is on the list to make again, which my family claims that I never make anything twice.  

What is your favorite fall recipe?
