This Pumpkin Pecan and Coconut Ring Cake is perfect for autumn. It has seasonal spice, sweet pumpkin, chewy coconut & an amazing cinnamon and maple icing. It is one delectable cake.
Mmmm, it seems I have a problem whenever I bake with pumpkin. Whatever it is, it always ends up large (remember the whoopee pies?). Every time. Why? But with cake like this, Pumpkin Pecan and Coconut Ring I can’t say I honestly care that it’s so big. Sometimes it’s best not to question and just enjoy.
When you consider all that goes into this cake, it’s easy to see why it fits the bill perfectly for late autumn. There’s
- an inviting aroma of seasonal spices wafting around
- sweet pumpkin
- luscious soured cream
- texture from the pecans and coconut
And… here’s the clincher. It has an amazing cinnamon and maple syrup icing dribbled all over it (oh, yes). This Pumpkin Pecan and Coconut Ring is one delectable cake.
I’ll admit, I did spend a lot of last weekend eating wedges of this cake. To be fair, it was a soggy weekend around me, so all I really wanted to do was stay cosy at home and um… eat comforting, autumnal things. I did go out get dragged out for a lovely walk when the rain eventually cleared and – bonus – the sun came out and we all got muddy. Time for home and er… more cake?
Having munched my way through a fair few chunks, I feel qualified to tell you the best way to enjoy this Pumpkin, Pecan and Coconut Ring Cake: serve it in fat slices along with a mug of spiced hot chocolate, whilst wearing big cosy slippers & snuggling beneath a fleecy blanket on the sofa. Perfect.
