Spiced Pumpkin Cake, a White Chocolate Glaze + Toasted Pepitas

• 11 December 2012

Today I am continuing to spend as much time with my littlest sister as possible, as she leaves in a few days for the East Coast.  We see each other so infrequently that maximizing our face time together is very important to me.  It's been such a lovely week as we've explored Seattle together--both city and nature.  Foraging, cooking, treats, and chats by the fire have all been highlights.

In the meantime, I'd like to share with you a pumpkin cake spiced with peppery quatres épices, a white chocolate glaze and toasted pepitas (inspired by these yummy cookies).  I've made this cake many times in the past month or two, as I am on an endless pumpkin kick that didn't stop at Thanksgiving!  For me, pumpkin is an excellent flavor to channel throughout the winter and I love sharing it with others.
