Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe comes courtesy of The raisins are soaked in whiskey, which makes a nice contrast to the pumpkin, without being ovepowering. If you can't find plain unflavored yogurt, you can substitute sour cream. It's a wonderful dessert!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup golden raisins
1 cup whiskey (optional)
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 stick of softened butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 1/4 cup plain, unflavored yogurt
1 cup canned or fresh pumpkin puree

1 cup heavy cream, very cold
2 to 3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons whiskey


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Spray 9 x 13 inch pan with baking spray; line with a piece of Reynolds parchment to fit bottom of pan and spray bottom again.

Combine whiskey and raisins in a bowl and allow to soak for awhile.

Sift together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside.

Add butter to a mixing bowl and beat. Add sugar and beat.

Add in eggs 1 at a time, beating after each egg.

Add yogurt and pumpkin and mix gently until just combined.

Add flour mixture in increments, beating until just combined.

Drain raisins and stir in by hand.

Pour batter into pan and bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until set.

Remove from oven and allow to cool 10 minutes before turning out onto a rack. Peel parchment from cake and allow cake to cool.

When cake is cool, make Whiskey Whipped Cream:

Combine ingredients and begin mixing immediately on high speed until stiff, about 4 minutes.

Spoon over cooled cake.
