“Pumpkin farms are a big deal in WA and every Oct. we try and visit at least one in our area. Last year my 18 & 20 year old DDs and I made the trek, and even took a tramp through a corn maze. This is a simple but elegant dessert which I like to bring to parties. Have a dish towel, dusted with powdered sugar ready for when the cake comes out of the oven. I have hurried the cooling process by putting my cake on the back porch in the winter!”
