Food blog Cooking Classy has put together this extravagant pumpkin cake recipe topped with a rich salted caramel frosting just in time for the fall season. This cake is a great substitute for pumpkin pie offering similar flavors in a new format.
The brown butter pumpkin cake features a moist sponge made with traditional pumpkin pie fixings such as pumpkin puree, ginger, nutmeg and cloves added to buttermilk, butter, flour, sugar and eggs. The cake has a rustic orange hue that resembles in smell and taste to pumpkin pie. The cake is decorated with a rich caramel frosting made from homemade caramel sauce, powdered sugar and butter. To finish off the presentation, the cake is covered in chopped pecans and a drizzle of caramel sauce. You can layer more of the frosting between layers for an added touch of caramel for each bite.
