Pumpkin Cream Cheese Tea Cake1

Well, Hello! I hope you are well!

Just popping in to share this wonderful recipe with you.

The boys helped me make this tea cake. They  were so excited about it. They had to taste it in every stage of its formation. The cream cheese was certainly a great wonder to them. I changed the recipe around a bit and lessened the amount of sugar. Added coconut oil instead of the vegetable oil. We also decided to turn the recipe from a bread recipe into a tea cake instead. We used a 7 inch spring form pan.

Tea is a must with this cake. Or, if you would prefer coffee, that is fine too. But don’t make this cake without reserving the right to enjoy it with tea and a lovely book or a chat with a dear friend. It is these occasions that bring out the true flavors of life.
