I won Grand Prize and 1st Prize with this cake at the Great PumpkinBake Off, October 2010 in Newcastle, OK. I hope your family enjoys it…
In a large bowl combine sugar and oil. Blend in vanilla, sour cream and pumpkin. Beat in eggs one at a time. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in nuts. Fold in halved Raspberries. Spread batter into prepared pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool. Then Frost with Cream Cheese Frosting and decorate with whole Raspberries and fall foliage as desired.
