After the two days of fall we enjoyed here in Georgia temperatures have plummeted into the 30s. And, cold mornings are my nemesis. I hit the snooze button more times than my dog turns around in circles before settling down.
And when I do finally push the covers off and stumble down the stairs, my eyes are usually closed. That is until I get downstairs and smell the coffee!

On these cold mornings, steaming mugs of coffee are more than my morning routine – they are my bliss ~ kind of like a slice of this Easy Pumpkin Spice Cake with Maple Brown Sugar Icing.

Some other evenings, we use warm coffee to keep warm while enjoying a bowl of ice cream.
Speaking of dessert, I whipped up this Easy Pumpkin Spice Cake with Maple Brown Sugar Icing to share with some friends and I’m sad to say someone even licked the crumbs off the serving plate!
I say sad because I wanted to lick the crumbs off the serving plate myself! 🙂
This is one of my favorite spice cakes. It is quite an indulgent cake. But it is easy to whip up.
I picked up the parchment hack from a baking show to get cakes out of cake pans easily. Simply place long strips of parchment crisscrossing on baking tray so the strips hang over the edges.
Place cake batter on top of parchment strips and when cake is baked and cooled, you can use the parchment strips to gently lift the cake out of the pan.
I assembled the pumpkin spice layers and the maple brown sugar icing together and froze it before taking it over to enjoy with friends, and it didn’t fully thaw out before we dug into it.
But that didn’t seem to put a damper on everyone’s enthusiasm to taste this.
The pumpkin spice cake compliments the maple brown sugar icing so beautifully.
