It’s that time of the year again. The time where everyone goes crazy for pumpkins. Us, included. But it’s not just in pies. You can find so many other delicious pumpkin-y recipes that aren’t just your same ol’ pumpkin pie recipe. If you look hard enough. Something that’s even special enough to serve guests. Something grand enough to be the memorable sweet finale to the holiday we wait for all year long. We’ve got you covered with the best pumpkin almond cake recipe you’ll ever taste!
It’s a moist cake that stays that way, even after a couple of days, if you’re lucky enough to have leftovers. The crumb is fine and tender like a cupcake’s. The taste is pumpkin-y and sweet, but thankfully, not too sweet. Even with the tasty frosting. The thick and creamy frosting gets its body from the whipping cream and mascarpone. The dust of cinnamon over the frosting is the cherry on top to a perfect fall dessert. For us, it’s the perfect pumpkin treat for this time of year. Take our word for it, you don’t have to be a pumpkin pie-hater to love this pumpkin cake recipe. We’ve made a video tutorial too, in case you need a little extra help in the kitchen. Enjoy!
