 Autumn breeze
changing leaves
colors red and gold
Autumn sounds
All around
Beauty to behold.

Nothing speaks autumn more than some delicious Pumpkin Cake with Brown Butter Glaze.

 Pumpkin Cake with Browned Butter Glaze (adapted Buns in My Oven)

1 package yellow cake mix
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 eggs
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk 
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1. Beat together all ingredients for the cake until well combined.
2. Add batter to bundt pan and bake 350° for 40-50 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes in the bundt pan before turning onto a cake platter to finish cooling. 

For the glaze:
1. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat until browned, about 8 minutes.
2. Pour the butter into a small bowl and whisk in the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla until smooth.
3. Drizzle over the top of the cooled cake.
