Welcome to Christmas Week, a multi-blogger event co-hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen from Juanita's Cocina! Each day we will be celebrating the holidays with a different set of Christmas-themed treats, as well as a fabulous Christmas giveaway. We hope you enjoy this celebratory event and that you will tune in each day starting today, Monday, December 9th and ending Saturday, December 14th.
Usually I'm behind the power curve when it comes to getting involved in blogging events, but this week I'm actually involved! Celebrating all things Christmas with a multitude of blogger friends, we're bringing you treats for the holiday as well as a giveaway every day. Liv Life will be participating today, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, but don't forget to keep an eye out for posts on Tuesday and Friday as there's a new giveaway in combination with delectable treats each and every day!
Today we're bringing one of our favorite Christmas Treats. (Well... I know I'm supposed to post Christmas treats, but I have to admit that this Chocolate Pumpkin Cake is something that I stock up on seasonal pumpkin for as we've been known to bring it to summer bbq's as well). But for today, it's for Christmas, and a wonderful addition to any Christmas Party it is.
With the indulgence of the season, this cake with it's lower fat content and a touch of whole grains is one I love to make for the holiday season. Adding pumpkin puree kicks up the nutrition content even more, and while I don't think we can really call it "health food", it's definitely not as indulgent as some of the other treats we've been sampling these last few weeks.
Chocolaty and doused in not just one, but two spiced glazes, this moist cake goes a long way to serve a crowd. Sliced into thin slices, we've been known to get nearly 20 pieces out of one cake, and it's so popular, often there are no leftovers for me to bring home. Decadent chocolate enhanced with seasonal spices... this one has earned its place on the top of our favorite list.
And now that we've had a treat... how about that giveaway I mentioned??
