Black Butte Ranch and White and Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Cake
This White and Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Cake recipe is good enough for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
Awhile back, a few lady friends and I went to Black Butte Ranch, outside of Sisters, Oregon, for a birthday celebration. So many of my friends are turning 50 this year (and last), it’s been a fun way to get together for long weekends and dinner parties, to celebrate the milestone event. I think back to last year and all the festivities that took place for my 50th. It was a whirlwind of fun, I’d say!
Sitting around for hours and talking about life is how you get to know friends better. You learn more about their lives—the painful and the joyful times—and that makes knowing others so much richer. Sharing empathy, sympathy, laughter, tears. It all happens. It’s real life.
My friend Kathie made a killer pumpkin bread that I recently tried to recreate. I’m not sure mine is as good as hers :) but today’s recipe, I must say, is pretty tasty.
I love pumpkin, and when it’s mixed with dark and white chocolate, you can’t go wrong.
You could eat this any time of day, serve with any meal, give it away as a hostess gift, a “welcome to the neighborhood” gift, a “just because” gift, a holiday gift.
Our time together was yummy. Sweet, savory, there’s nothing like girlfriends, and the wisdom and experiences and years put together are some of life’s blessings.
