“Just in time for the holidays, this is a nice alternative to pumpkin pie. Just before serving, dust with confectioners' sugar and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.” - by Darlene
Original recipe yields 1 - 10 inch tube pan
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch regular or fluted tube pan.
- In a large bowl, beat together oil, eggs, pumpkin and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. Fold flour mixture into pumpkin mixture. Pour into prepared pan.
- Bake in preheated oven 60 minutes; reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and bake 15 minutes more, until cake springs back when lightly touched in center. Let cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely.
- To make the Honey Glaze: Warm honey in microwave or small saucepan until runny. Place confectioners sugar in small bowl and pour runny honey and lemon juice over sugar. Mix well and brush onto cooled cake.

It took a very long time to bake (1 hour, 15 minutes) and I had to put aluminum foil over the top of it to keep it from burning after the first 30 minutes of baking. Plus, there was too much batter for one pan. It was okay, but nothing special."
