Autumn Pumpkin-Raspberry Bundt® Cake
This is a recipe I entered in the Great Pumpkin Bake-Off in Newcastle, OK at T.G. Farms on October 30, 2010. I won first prize in the Breads, Cookies, and Cakes category and the Grand Prize overall. I've always wanted to enter a baking contest, and it was fun. The only criteria was the recipe had to have pumpkin in it. I researched it and didn't find another recipe like it. I hope you and your family enjoy it! Decorate with fall foliage as desired.
