-For those of you who have been with ABK for a while, I posted this in '08 but decided it could be simplified (consolidating spices and using pumpkin pie spice instead) and lightened up the recipe a bit by switching out the butter in the cake for oil and cutting the lemon butter sauce in half.
I made the changes and the cake was better than my original version. A bit lighter, but still moist with great flavor.
-*Make your own pumpkin pie spice for a fraction of the cost of pre mixed pp spice, recipe here: http://abountifulkitchen.com/2011/11/how-to-make-your-own-pumpkin-pie-spice.html
-Make sure to check after 30 minutes, this cake bakes quickly and will dry out if over baked.
-This cake is best served within 8 hours of baking.
-If the cake has cooled before serving, heat up individual pieces for about 15 seconds in microwave, then top with whipped cream.
