This past weekend, we had some of our friends over for a dinner party and to watch a scary movie. For dinner, I made cavatelli with zucca and an arugula salad with orange slices, sliced fennel, red onion, and a lemon vinaigrette. Following dinner, I made this pumpkin bundt cake that I found from Betty Crocker. The recipe calls for 3 cups of Biscuit mix. I’ll admit, I’ve never baked a cake with Bisquick before, but this cake turned out delicious. It came out moist and flavorful. The simple frosting also added a vanilla sweetness that tasted perfect with the pumpkin. We also made some warm apple cider with apple brandy. It was the perfect autumn meal to share with good friends!
