Pumpkin Angel Food Cake with Maple Cinnamon Whipped Cream

So before we get to today’s recipe, you may notice that things are looking different around here (if you’re reading this by email or in a reader – come on over and see).  Our new site design went live last Friday night and we’re excited about our new look!  Give us a little time to make a few tweaks here and there, if you are looking for something and can’t find it, please send us a quick email and we’ll be happy to help.


What did you do this past weekend?  I spent all day on Saturday with other food bloggers…yep, that’s right the whole day without any kids.  I attended the first ever Taste of MI in Grand Rapids.  I can’t wait to tell you all about it later this week.


We’re keeping I LOVE PUMPKIN WEEK going strong for one more week – who’s with me?

This is a light and lovely take on the traditional angel food cake and it totally screams FALL!!!  I bucked tradition a little bit and used two loaf pans – they were a little rustic looking but my little taste testers did not care one bit.  I sliced the cake and sandwiched maple cinnamon whipped cream in the middle and again on top…oh my word, so delicious!  The last thing that I really loved about this cake was how easy it is – you’re fancying up a boxed mix here, it couldn’t get any easier!
