A few weeks back a woman I go to church with let several people in our ward (congregation) know that she had several CASES of pumpkin. Yes, cases. Her neighbor has a job at the nearby air force base. He is somehow involved in the stocking of the commissariat, which results in her being the recipient of extra supplies.
Well of course, I jumped on the chance to get some free pumpkin.
There is something so elegant about Bundt cakes. I mean, they come out with a design with no real effort on your part. Just pour the batter into the Bundt pan and voila, you will have yourself a pretty looking cake!
Of course, pumpkin cake calls for cream cheese frosting. The frosting and the chopped walnuts are what put this cake over the top! Normally I am not a fan of nuts in my dessert. You could leave the walnuts out and be totally okay. However, I used candied walnuts, and the crunch is just perfect.
So, summertime is upon us. You know you have a BBQ to go to and you volunteered to bring dessert. Bring this cake. You will not regret it. I promise you.
