Are you sick of pumpkin-flavored things yet? Yes? No? Either way, this tea cake is for you. Rather than the standard mix of spices that linger in the background and provide a general warmth to a pumpkin-flavored treat, this tea cake goes big and bold with the spices, incorporating a whopping 5 teaspoons of Vanns Ground Cinnamon, 2 tsp. of Vanns Ground Nutmeg, and a pinch of Vanns Ground Cloves. Though it may seem excessive on paper, once you taste this perfectly balanced mixture of spices, you’ll never go back.
The cake is lightly and moist, with a beautiful topping of raw sugar and pepitas that add the perfect amount of crunch to every bite. It’s the perfect addition to brunch, a great make-ahead dessert for a winter dinner, or just a way to treat yourself at any time of day.
Yields 1 loaf. The loaf will keep well-wrapped at room temperature for two or three days. It also freezes well — pre-slice the loaf and store in a freezer bag. Reheat slices at 350°F. Adapted from Tartine.
