Hey you! Don't eat that, eat this!

Every year, around late September or early October, pumpkin season starts. When I was a kid, there wasn't much pumpkin flavored foods... pie and bread were really about it.
Then at some point a few years back, somebody realized that pumpkin is a flavor that can be used for all sorts of wacky treats! This blog is primarily about those pumpkin items.
Typically, if it's pumpkin flavored, I will try it. If it has pumpkin in the name, there is a strong chance I will try it. The weirder, the more fun.
In order for this to not be a September - December only blog, I'll also highlight other weird foods (typically prepackaged, mass produced stuff) as well. There will also be a healthy dose of beer reviews.

Gingerbread Pumpkin Bundt Cake: Corner Bakery

It seems that we've hit a point where we're running out of just plain pumpkin flavored stuff and now we're finding more and more blends. Blending pumpkin with gingerbread is becoming more common and the two fall/holiday flavors work well together.

The Corner Bakery's Gingerbread Pumpkin mini-bundt cake is a good blend of pumpkin and gingerbread. I love gingerbread anyway, so this sounded pretty good. And it was. It was pretty moist and spicy. Really the only problem I had was the excessive use of the glazed icing stuff. A light drizzle is good, but I don't need a pool of icing in the middle.

It's a pretty healthy serving so it's perfect to share... or pig out. That's what I did. It would probably be better to slice it though. Otherwise, you look like some cro-mag going face first into some dead animal. And you'll get icing on your nose.
