Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 10-inch tube pan. Cream the butter with the brown sugar.
  • Beat in the pumpkin puree and then add the eggs one at a time, whipping each one in well before adding the next. In a separate bowl, sift dry ingredients and the sour cream alternately to the pumpkin mixture.
  • Stir in 1/2 of the nuts and pour or spoon the batter into the prepared tube pan.
  • Bake for one hour and 5 minutes, or until a cake tester (or toothpick) inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Let the cake cool at room temperature for 10 minutes before unmolding it. Sprinkle the remaining chopped nuts over the top, and pour the warm glaze over it.
  • Allow cake to stand another half hour before slicing and serving.
  • ----------------------
  • BUTTER RUM GLAZE
  • -------
  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan.
  • Add the granulated and brown sugar, stir well, then add the rum, orange juice and cream.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
  • Pour over cake while still warm.
