Posted by: 

The combination of pumpkin and cinnamon of this pumpkin pound cake recipe gives yet another sweet reminder of this holiday season.  It is purely satisfying and the perfect pal for your cup of coffee or tea. 

This cake is one that tastes even better the following day, the perfect excuse to bake ahead and leave the party day more open to relax a bit before guests arrive!  I found this wonderful recipe here, and changed it up a bit, adding also the glaze and maple pecans.  If you'd like a printable copy of this cake and glaze recipe, simply click here.
