New England Pumpkin Cake

It’s officially October which means it’s officially “All Things Pumpkin” season. Not that I haven’t been embracing pumpkin everything since Labor Day weekend ended…. errr, or a couple of weeks before that. But that is besides the point! September may be all about getting excited for the pumpkin fun, but October means business.

Last year I shared 5 pumpkin inspired recipes in 5 weeks. I had so much fun doing it that I decided to repeat the fun this year, despite the husband protesting. Over the next 5 weeks I plan to share a pumpkin inspired treat with you once a week. From cakes, to cookies & breakfast items, there will be a little bit of everything.

Week #1 starts with one of my new favorites, New England Pumpkin Cake.
