Frosted Pumpkin Walnut Snack Cake at Miz Helen's Country Cottage
I love this simple recipe that is so full of delicious flavors. This Frosted Pumpkin Walnut Snack Cake has been around our family for a very long time and is just perfect for a  after school snack for the kids or a great little snack cake to serve your friends that drop by for coffee. We have lots of friends and family that drop by the cottage for a cup of coffee and a nice visit, I really enjoy having a little something to offer along with that cup of coffee or tea. This recipe is easy to put together and has a great spice combination to enhance the flavor of the pumpkin and is topped with a silky frosting with walnuts.
