Pumpkin Cake with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting Sunday, October 17, 2021, 06:37 PM
Meredith made [Vermont Spiced] Pumpkin Cake [Food52] for our birthday cake. When she made it last year the frosting was too powerful and you didn't taste the cake. So Meredith thought about what frosting to use and decided that maple sounded good...and then realized that was actually the suggested frosting!
She used the frosting recipe on the main page but used
inspired by Martha Stewart. The frosting was plenty sweet (I can't imagine how sweet it would have been with 3.5 cups!) but you couldn't taste the maple at all! Much more next time.
My dad (and Mason) also made a sugar-free chocolate cake. He used his No-Fail Pound Cake with xylitol for sugar. It was good but I think it made my stomach a bit unhappy...
