    HokiesMom's Note:

    Very simple cake that is perfect for serving at dinner parties and special occasions. Glaze uses orange juice instead of milk for a nice variation and a play on the orange flavor within the cake. Found this on the Very Best Baking website.

      loved this cake! I had frozen pumpkin puree in my freezer that I wanted to use up and this was perfect, I made no changes it didn't need any this was perfect as it, I sent this home with my DS and GF over the weekend, thanks for sharing Mel!

      Made the cake but didn't try the glaze (made a cream cheese glaze instead, but still added the o.j. for flavour). Cake was very moist, thanks to the pumpkin. Super-easy to make, too. Will try to remember this one for next Halloween - the bright-orange cake with black poppy seeds would be a great fit!
