Pumpkin Pound Cake

Secret Recipe Club 

It is Secret Recipe Club time again!  This month I was assigned the blog, Savannah's Savory Bites.  It is a fun blog full of recipes that are tasty, easy on the budget, and easy to prepare.  Yes, it is right up my alley!  Because this Secret Recipe Club posting is during the holiday season, I decided to make a Pumpkin Pound Cake.  We love pumpkin year round in this house so I always have a can of it in the pantry ready for a delicious treat.

This recipe is exactly what holiday desserts should be in my opinion.  Warm and delicious full of sweet spices and moist from the canned pumpkin.  We topped ours with fresh whipped cream, oh yes it was a delicious dessert, but it also makes a great breakfast treat too!  Enjoy!
