      Pumpkin Pound Cake with Cinnamon Glaze

      (Cake can be made up to 2 days ahead.)

      3 cups all-purpose flour
      1 tablespoon ground ginger
      2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
      1 teaspoon baking powder
      1/2 teaspoon salt
      1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
      1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, softened
      2 cups sugar
      6 eggs
      1 (15-oz.) can pure pumpkin
      1 teaspoon vanilla extract

      2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
      1 (3-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
      1 teaspoon vanilla extract
      3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
      1 1/4 cups powdered sugar, sifted
      2 to 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
      1/3 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

      1. Heat oven to 325°F. Grease 12-cup Bundt pan with shortening. Sprinkle with flour; tap pan to remove excess flour.

      2. Whisk flour, ginger, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, baking powder, salt and nutmeg in medium bowl.

      3. Beat 1 1/2 cups butter and sugar in large bowl at medium speed 2 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add eggs two at a time, beating well after each addition. At low speed, beat in pumpkin and 1 teaspoon vanilla until well-blended. Slowly add flour mixture, beating just until incorporated. Spoon batter into pan.

      4. Bake 1 hour 20 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes or until deep golden brown and wooden skewer inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack 15 minutes. Invert cake onto wire rack; cool completely.

      5. Beat 2 tablespoons butter, cream cheese, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon in large bowl at low speed 1 minute or until blended. Slowly beat in powdered sugar until smooth. Beat in cream until of desired consistency. Pour glaze over cake; sprinkle with walnuts. Let stand until glaze is set.
