🤎A delicious pumpkin spice cake to get into the autumn mood!

There is no flavor that defines autumn as much as pumpkin, and I love to twist it in so many ways! In a previous article, I shared with you my pumpkin pie recipe, perfect for a Harry Potter binge-watching night, and some time soon (this year or the next), I’ll share with you my Pumpkin Spice Syrup recipe (for now, I need to try different way to be sure I offer you the best one =) ! This year, I wanted to change from my traditional pie and see if my pumpkin purée could be twisted into a pumpkin and spice cake, and the answer is yes !
