Recipe #1: Pumpkin Cake
by Stacey Larnerd

3 cup flour
2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
2 cup pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling!)
1 cup Canola oil
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup nuts (walnuts or pecans)

Mix all together and pour into bread loaf pans or a decorative bundt pan and bake at 350 degrees for 70 minutes if cooking in a bundt pan and check at 60 minutes if using bread loaf pans. The cake is done when you stick a knife or skewer in and it comes out clean.

For an extra special touch you can serve this with whip cream! Yum


This was one of my favorite recipes my mom used to make when I was a kid. The chocolate chips make it extra delicious. This is a great recipe to make with kids because it's easy.
Hope you enjoy it!

Send us some of your favorite recipes. We'd love to know what you're cooking up this season.
