My coworker Jen’s birthday was in the summer while I was off on vacation. Jen, being the awesome coworker that she is, made me a super delicious banana cake for my birthday last March. It was seriously amazing. So I was feeling really bad in October when I still hadn’t baked her up a late birthday treat. Jen was very gracious about the whole thing, given that September was beyond crazy in library land, and she was pleased enough to celebrate in October. We hemmed and hawed but when I saw this recipe by Peabody of Culinary Concoctions, we decided this was the one.
We were too busy eating the cake to focus on taking pictures, hence the slightly lame photo. But the cake was delicious, what’s not to like when pumpkin, cream cheese and caramel are involved? I think this would be great for afternoon tea over the Christmas holidays. I’m just sayin’ you might want to try it.
