Pumpkin Almond Cake with Almond Butter Frosting ~ Baked Sunday Mornings


This week's Baked Sunday Mornings challenge is for Pumpkin Almond Cake with Almond Butter Frosting from the new Baked Elements cookbook.  This single layer cake is the perfect addition to a Thanksgiving dessert buffet.  Almond flour lightens up the density of the flavor and texture of the pumpkin and the almond butter makes a smooth, not-too-sweet frosting.  I decorated the top of this one with Cinnamon Almonds from Trader Joe's.



This cake comes together quickly and easily and my whole family enjoyed it.

Enjoy!
