Pumpkin Spice Walnut Cake

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by MrsScarlettOhara

Thank you Country Home for this wonderful recipe!! I wanted to share with you all:-) The recipe needed to be written out for ease of use so I did (they had it jumbled up on the website). I added walnuts to the recipe...love those! If you don't have BUTTERMILK then use cow's milk mixed with 2 TBSP of white Vinegar. I also included the frosting that I used instead of the one the site had. Also if you only have a 1/4 cup and not a 3/4 cup simply fill a 1 cup up to about 1/2 inch from the top other wise you'll have to use the 1/4 cup 3 times....just a nice little short cut I like to use:-)
