And now, a mid-week recipe.

PUMPKIN CAKE

2 C. Flour
2 C. Sugar
1 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Baking Soda
3 tsp. Cinnamon
1 1/2 C. Canola Oil
1 Small Can Pumpkin
4 Eggs, beaten

Icing
1 Stick Soft Butter or Margarine
3 oz. Cream Cheese, Softened
1/2 Box Powdered Sugar
1 t. Vanilla
1 1/2 C. Finely Chopped Pecans (or Walnuts)

Directions:
Mix all together. Bake in well greased and floured Bundt or tube pan. Bake 1 hour in a 350 degree oven.

Beat butter and cream cheese till well mixed; then blend in vanilla and powdered sugar, a little at a time until fluffy. Fold in nuts. Ice cake after it has completely cooled. Keep refrigerated.

This will go nicely with all the Reeses Peanut Butter Cups that you confiscate from any hapless trick-or-treaters that you may or may not be related to.

I’m just sayin’.
