Pumpkin Pecan Cake With Ginger Whipped Cream

110 mins (prep 50, cooking 60)
20 ingredients
16-18 servings
I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit! This cake is almost like gingerbread, with a firm texture and so fragrant; but the pumpkin flavor definitely comes through! This recipe is from Bon Appetit Magazine, November, 1990. It indicates 12 servings, but you can easily cut 16 - 18 slices. This cake is large, and you can freeze leftover slices. Allow yourself about 50 minutes to an hour for prep time.
