Wake and Bake: in the Truest Sense of the Term

9 Sep

The other night, I was so paranoid about finishing a bunch of work I hadn’t done that I set my alarm for 4:45 the next morning.  I would wake up, finish it, and go to class.

Well, when the next day rolled around and I rolled around in bed, not wanting to get up, I realized I could not even finish the assignments until getting some help.  But I couldn’t go back to sleep…so I made pumpkin cake!

Here’s the recipe–I hope it serves you well on a sleepless night or morning in the future:

pumpkin cake!

Early Bird’s Wake and Bake Cake

  1. Beat the sugar and eggs until frothy in a medium bowl
  2. Beat in the butter and then the pumpkin
  3. Dump all dry ingredients on top and then whisk thoroughly.

  7. ENJOY!
