All you have to do is step inside any store and you will immediately find that it is Pumpkin Spice season everywhere! Now don’t get me wrong, I am a full blow Pumpkin Spice Latte addict. I get one almost, almost, everyday. My day revolves around getting my Pumpkin Spice fix. But, Pumpkin Spice cough drops….uhm….not today….not ever.
I thought if I brought out some fall decor, fall would come. It did, sort of. Our mornings have been a little cooler so all of you in the Florida panhandle can thank me. You are welcome! We do not have the true seasonal weather in the panhandle. In fact, our four seasons are hot, hot and humid, hot and sticky, and humid and sticky. So a few days of slightly cooler temperatures are much welcomed.
Does your Thanksgiving dessert table need spicing up this year? Well this is the little cake that will do the job. This is a chocolate, pecan, spice loaf cake with cream cheese icing. Yes, you read that right. For such a little cake, it packs all things good and wonderful about the Thanksgiving season. This cake comes together really fast as it uses a cake mix for its base. I am one of those people who tends to go overboard on desserts when we get together, which is rare, so it is a treat when there is a cake that comes together quickly. You can adjust the pumpkin pie spice and nutmeg to your taste preferences. You may be feeling like spicy Sally, or just feeling a tad spicy. Me, I am pretty spicy…ask Sir Streusel. Now let’s discuss Cream Cheese Frosting. I don’t need to put this frosting on anything. Just hand me a spoon, then back away. Some of the frosting may actually find its way to the cake! So, to sum up this cake, start with a cake mix. Add chocolate, spices and top it with yummy cream cheese frosting and you have yourself a delicious little spice cake to be thankful for!
