this recipe originally appeared on Our State<br /><br /> <br /><br />In case you missed the signs, it’s pumpkin season! Some of you, I know, just squealed with glee. The rest of you flinched in horror. I get it! Pumpkin has become synonymous with overly sweet, overly spiced, overly orange. Never fear, this recipe is not one of those. The pound cake itself is dense and rich. The spice is subtle. The color is… naturally orange. It’s pumpkin the way it’s supposed to be. The way October and the Gods of Fall intended it to be.<br /><br /> <br /><br /> <br /><br />In fact, today, all across the internet, pumpkin recipes are going live as a part of the #virtualpumpkinparty, organized by Sara over at Cake Over Steak. So if you’re not pumpkin’ed out take a gander at the list at the bottom of the post because I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by all the hats that pumpkin is wearing this season.<br /><br /> <br /><br />Pumpkin Pound Cake with Spiced Glaze<br /><br /> <br /><br />1 cup butter, softened, plus extra for greasing<br /><br />2 cups sugar<br /><br />6 eggs<br /><br />1 tsp vanilla extract<br /><br />3 cups flour<br /><br />1/4 tsp baking soda<br /><br />1 cup pumpkin puree<br /><br />1 tsp cinnamon<br /><br />2 tsps powdered ginger<br /><br />1 tsp nutmeg<br /><br />1 tsp cloves<br /><br /> <br /><br />for the glaze:<br /><br /> <br /><br />1 tbsp whole milk (or bourbon)<br /><br />1 cup powdered sugar<br /><br />1/2 tsp ginger<br /><br />1/4 tsp cloves<br /><br />1/4 tsp nutmeg<br /><br />1/4 tsp ginger<br /><br /> <br /><br />Preheat the oven to 350F.
