Pumpkin pound cake ..starbucks wannabe..

Since the last 2 days I have been receiving hundreds of repins for my fall decor post - it makes me so happy and wanted to let you know that I am very grateful + 100% motivated to do more and better :)

Now let's go back to the nitty gritty....Did you know you won't find any canned pumpkin here in Spain (nor Italy for that matter)? I clearly didn't know that!!!

Let me tell you: few days ago, I found an amazing recipe for a Pumpkin pound cake copycat from starbucks. I was so excited and really wanted to bake it until I received a big punch in the face: I realised (after 3 days of hard research) that the main ingredient [Canned Pumpkin] isn't stock here in Spain.......................What the heck?????

So it was goodbye to "Sturbucks copycat" and Hello to "Wannabe Starbucks Pumpkin pound cake" {because I don't give up so easily}

Here it is:

.......I used fresh Pumpkin!

If you have the same problem (or simply don't like canned pumpkin), feel free to use my recipe:

I can ensure you that the cake was as good as the original! I brought it in the office and my colleagues loved it :)

The original recipe can be found at somethingswanky :)


Until next time,
