Cinderella Cake

I went to a 40th wedding anniversary last weekend and it turned out to be a mini family reunion. We had such a good time visiting with our firends and family. On our first night there, we went to dinner at a relatives house. Sandra brought a pumpkin spice cake that was so good and moist. I had to have the recipe, so here it is. This would be a great addition to any Thanksgiving menu.

I'm glad you liked the recipe. I think it would be just as nice without the icing and baked into loaf pans and served for brunch. It's so good I want to make it again, but next on my list is chocolate cinnamon bread- yum!

Hon, are you using cake flour or regular flour for this? Just want to make sure....Thanks, it looks divine and your presentation of it is simply beautiful!

I use plain all purpose flour and it works every time. If you wanted to use cake flour you could, but there's no need to.

Hope you like it!
