Pumpkin Pecan Cake

Happy weekend everyone!

We recently celebrated my son’s 17th birthday and last Saturday we celebrated my daughter’s 20th birthday!! We spent the weekend at Niagara Falls, in Ontario. We had a lot of fun, due to the cold, we spent most of our time doing things indoors like bowling and eating! ;))

I still had some pumpkins left from our garden, made some soup and a pumpkin pecan cake. Pumpkin and pecan might be a bit an unusual combination but it turned out really yummy! This is probably going to be my last pumpkin recipe for this season, as I’m starting to think of gingerbread and other delicious holiday baked goods!
