I am NOT one of those people. I don’t like rushing seasons or holidays because I inevitably get bored with them too soon. I want to put things out at an appropriate time so I can enjoy them all season long.
But the spices in this cake… purepumpkin heaven! I had to. Just this once. I’ll now go back to summer and 100+ days and flip flops and tank tops.
But for one little Saturday in August, I simply HAD to have a little bite of Fall.
Plus!, this recipe calls for candied pecans to be sprinkled on top but I used regular pecans so basically, it’s diet food.
Don’t make this recipe too soon, (don’t do it, girl) but put it on your Fall Bucket List. It’s one of the best bundt cakes I’ve ever had (no hyperbole needed.)
Looking forward to sweaters and hot cider and football games. But not yet. There’s a little more sand-between-the-toes days to come.
But after all the guests are gone and your kids are in bed, these are the cupcakes you make just for yourself.
Not only are they decadently full of chocolate, they have a secret ingredient that you really need about right now.
Yep. It’s in the recipe and in the icing.
If you want to tell your spouse about them, that’s up to you. But personally, I suggest disguising a dorm room refrigerator as a shoe storage bin and write down some excuses on the back of your hand as to why you need to keep going into your closet during the family movie marathon tonight.
