This Moist Pumpkin Cake is so wonderful, and perfect if you’re having some special company over, because it’s lightly sweet, moist and dense, without being heavy, and makes your house smell wonderful when it’s baking! It also looks beautiful when baked in a bundt pan, like I did for this post.

when I made this Crockpot Pumpkin Chili,
I was pleasantly surprised by how rich and hearty it makes the chili,
and it gives it a shot of vitamin A to boost.
It’s a nice recipe to put in the crockpot before church,
and when you get home, you have a nice hot lunch waiting!

Plus the shortbread is a yummy alternative to a regular pie crust.

Happy Autumn!
