Really? Perfect Pumpkin Pound Cake? Yes. Perfect. My definition of a “perfect” pumpkin loaf: a barely sweet slice of moist pumpkin goodness that is unmatched when paired with a cup of hot tea (or coffee for you coffee drinkers).

Without knowing how you define the Perfect Pumpkin Pound Cake, I highly recommend you give mine a try. Do not let the number of ingredients in this recipe intimidate you! You should know by now that I am all about easy recipes and this one is truly no different. Just two bowls, a mixer and a few measuring cups is all you will need.
