Mini Pumpkin Cakes with Spiced Buttermilk Glaze are what I’m talking about today!
It’s that time of year again where I feel like I live in my kitchen. This is not a bad thing, I love Fall cooking and baking! I am so glad that October has arrived! The leaves are changing here in St. Louis and I can walk and hear the crisp crunch under my feet. The cool air is coming in through our open windows, making it all come together. This is my favorite time of year for all of these reasons!
As I type this, I have a cool breeze coming through the screen of my open patio door. I just love it.
Today I was back in the kitchen baking up some delicious treats and testing a few recipes for upcoming projects. Today I made these delicious little Mini Pumpkin Cakes with Spiced Buttermilk Glaze. They are incredible and perfect for Fall dinner parties and potlucks!This has been my go to recipe for pumpkin cake for a lot of years and it’s a favorite. It’s great with this Spiced Buttermilk Glaze. I have since developed a pumpkin spice cake I like better which I will be sharing a week from Sunday for our Sunday Supper Dixie Sugar Halloween Celebration. Be sure to come back then!
