  • Delectable Pumpkin Cake and Brown Butter Frosting by kittygirl

    This is a great dessert for the fall months (or any other time for that matter-lol!)

    1/4 lb butter
    1/2 C packed brown sugar
    1 C sugar
    2 eggs
    2 1/4 C sifted cake flour
    2 tsp baking powder
    1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp ginger
    1/4 tsp allspice
    1/4 tsp baking soda
    1 C buttermilk
    3/4 C canned pumpkin
    1/2 C nuts of your choice ( I love Walnuts or chestnuts with this)

    Cream butter in a mixing bowl and gradually add the sugars and beat until fluffy. Beat eggs in one at a time. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, soda, and spices. Add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk. Blend in pumpkin and nuts.
    Pour batter into a buttered cake pan and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes.

    Brown Butter Frosting

    1/4 lb butter
    1 lb powdered sugar
    1 tsp vanilla
    4-5 tbs light cream

    in a sauce pan brown butter over low heat stirring occasionally, until light amber in color. In a small mixing bowl, beat together butter, sugar, salt, and vanilla while gradually adding cream. Continue beating until smooth and of spreading consistency.
