An Orange Bundt Pan

I went to some garage sales last weekend and found this orange bundt pan for 25 cents.  I couldn't believe it.  It reminded me of a post I had seen a few weeks ago by Debra at Common Ground.  She had created a centerpiece using an orange bundt pan she has. Click here to see her post.

Here is a picture of my bundt pan centerpiece.


It looks so pretty sitting on my kitchen island. 

Pretty gorgeous for just a quarter and some things I already had around the house.

 Of course before I put together this beautiful centerpiece I had to use the pan for its intended purpose.

I baked a cake!

Pumpkin-Chocolate Chip ~ here is the recipe.

3 cups sugar
3 1/3 cups flour
2 cups canned pumpkin
4 eggs
1 cup canola oil
2/3 cup water
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 (6 oz.) pkg. chocolate chips

Mix pumpkin, eggs, sugar, oil, and water together until well blended.  Sift dry ingredients and mix with pumpkin mixture.  Add pecans and chocolate chips.  Bake in 2 greased and floured loaf pans or one bundt pan at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes.

GLAZE
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1 to 2 Tablespoons cream

Enjoy!

Thanks as always for stopping by!

  8. Well, it is great recipe given by you, I really tried to make it at my home, Low carb diet does not allowed high foods in carbohydrate, especially white flour, sugar and starchy vegetables.
