Description

Pumpkin cake is a quinessential fall dessert. This version varies a little from the traditional cake featuring warming spices. Instead, the cake is studded with walnuts and coconut for a surprising take on the classic. By using fresh pumpkin, you ensure the flavor is bold and vibrant. A dusting of powdered sugar adds an extra bit of sweetness and a beautiful finish. If you want to make it even more decadent, a spoonful of whipped cream is a great addition.
