Pumpkin Pound Cake

This recipe I got from someone I really didn't even know and it was many, many years ago.  I happened to be on a preschool field trip to a pumpkin farm with my oldest (who is now 26!) and another mom brought along some of this pound cake.  I was able to get a copy of the recipe and voila I'm still baking it (it is definitely a favorite with my family)!  This is the type of cake that doesn't need anything else to go with it. . . no glaze, no whipped topping, etc.  It is so delicious all by itself!
