    Cookin-jo's Note:

    Every year we make a trip to the US to shop and one of my favourite places to shop is the Williams-Sonoma store. This year they were serving samples of this made with their own Pecan Pumpkin Butter and giving away the recipe. Since I can't buy the pumpkin butter here I adapted the recipe to use a butter recipe already on Zaar. Absolutely delicious!

      takes a little while when you do evrything from scratch but worth it! i made my own cake mix with 2 cups flour, 1 cup and a quarter of sugar 2&1/2 tsp bakingpowder and a pinch of salt. Tasted great, got rave reviews from friends, and it looks like a lot of work b/c of the differing layers. when you spread the first layer of cake it will seem a bit thin like there isnt enough but DONT worry, it should just be able to cover the bottom of the pan. great!
