This homemade pumpkin spice cake is elite. For me, there is no better season than Fall or Autumn as it is known around some parts of the country. There is a sort of magical wonder during this time. The holidays, family time, warm flavors, activities, and everything else add to the ambiance. I especially love baking during this time of year because the flavors are so unique compared to the rest of the year. They're full of depth and warmth. When I began to develop this recipe, I wanted a pumpkin cake that was full of pumpkin flavor but was also balanced out with the warmth of the spices. I wanted a cake that had a perfect texture which for me is a tight crumb, moist and fluffy. It should just sort of melt in your mouth when taking a bite. I also wanted something easy to make. Time is so valuable, especially around the holidays. I can honestly say, I believe I hit all the notes with this recipe and I'm sure you'll love it.
