Pumpkin+Bourbon – you basically can’t go wrong here.
I mean, unless you dislike Bourbon, in which case you can sub in TONS of other liqueurs – I’ve used coffee liqueurs, and Bailey’s was a huuge win! I’m still undecided as to whether I like the fact that pumpkin is a seasonal flavor. I LOVE pumpkin, and I’m pretty sure I’d love to have it around all year.
But then….would it really be as fun when it comes back every fall? Jury’s out. I’ll give it a bit and then decide.
The *for sure* thing though – this cake was a HUGE hit with my coworkers, and had been absolutely decimated by the time I took my first break of the day! Recipe below!
