Pumpkin Recipe #2

Bryan's mom made this cake last Sunday when we were visiting and it was so delicious that when we were asked to bring a dessert to a party at church it took all of 1.4 seconds to decide to make it again.  It's a bundt cake, and just like my favorite birthday cake it's utterly moist and irresistible- must be the sour cream.

Pumpkin Marble Cake

1 cup pumpkin
1 tbl cinnamon
1 box yellow cake mix
4 eggs
3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup water

Preheat oven to 350.  Combine pumpkin and cinnamon in a bowl and set aside.  Mix remaining ingredients until well blended.  Add half of cake mix to pumpkin mix and stir well.  Coat bundt pan well with spray.  Alternately add two batters, swirling a couple times when done to get marble effect.  Bake 30 to 40 minutes.  Let cool completely before flipping over.  Frost with thinned cream cheese frosting, powdered sugar, or leave plain and serve with cool whip.

*Note- I completely failed at the whole "marble" part of the cake.  I think I swirled too much so it all just blended together- still delicious but not as pretty as intended.  We got over it pretty quickly.
