This is a winner! After searching for a great pumpkin recipe to bring to my cousins' party, I chose this one. Bringing a cake I have never tasted is not usually something I like to do, but it worked out! The cake tastes mostly of orange, yet one can still taste a bit of pumpkin and subtle holiday spices. The cake is quite moist, almost like a pound cake, but not entirely the same. I flipped the cake, as it cracked in the oven and a powdered sugar glaze doesn't hide much. Fantastic cake!
