Maple Glazed Pumpkin Cinnamon Cake
To tell the truth I have always been more of an Apple everything and anything Fall Recipe kind of person. Pumpkin was always meh!
But lately from making my own Homemade Pumpkin Puree to remaking and reshooting my Creamy Pumpkin Pasta Sauce (still to be posted) and of course this delicious Maple Glazed Pumpkin Cinnamon Cake I almost changed my mind.
Almost I said 🙂 . Sorry Pumpkin, but Apple will always be number one!
But I do know that a lot of people prefer Pumpkin and one of those happens to be my husband. Yes the Italian cannot get enough pumpkin recipes.
A couple he has added to the list are pumpkin gelato and pumpkin cookies!
This Maple Glazed Pumpkin Cinnamon Cake was so easy to make and came together in no time. And the Pumpkin and Cinnamon made the house smell amazing.
Then of course I couldn’t help but drizzle it with one of my favourite glazes, Maple Glaze.
