Pumpkin Butter Cake {recipe}

There is so much butter and powdered sugar in this recipe it’s scandalous.

Seriously, scandal in the Alderman household!

But who doesn’t need a little scandal now and then, especially if it’s as harmless (and delicious!) as this Pumpkin Butter Cake? As I was searching for a sweet treat to serve to our community group this week, this recipe via Pinterest made me salivate. It’s simple and has two of my favorite things in the title.

Even though I’ve already started decorating for Christmas (so early, I know!) and it’s already winter weather outside, I thought I’d retain a little bit of Fall with this perfect seasonal recipe.
