Pumpkin Cake

Ever since I saw Ms. Calder make this on French Food at Home, I've been wanting to try it.

See, I'm a pumpkin fan. In all it's forms BUT pumpkin pie. I don't know what it is about pumpkin pie, the texture maybe? This is a nice, light cake, and the flavour that the rum and orange zest add give it great depth. And the colour...oh, gorgeous! Perfect for a fall day. Too bad I waited until the dead of winter to make it.

But really, try it! I'll post the link. See:

Look, here's my batter, all ready to go in the pan. Check out that colour! Gorgeous! I know I keep saying that. But look!
