Pumpkin Cake with White Chocolate Chips, Dried Cranberries and Pumpkin Spice Glaze

If I was asked to recommend only one, from scratch, pumpkin cake recipe, this would be it folks! This Pumpkin Cake with White Chocolate Chips, Dried Cranberries and Pumpkin Spice Glaze is not overly sweet and very nicely spiced. I love the addition of white chocolate chips and the cranberries make it seasonal right through New Year's Day. My crew gave this a big thumbs up and their only suggestion was to make a cream cheese frosting instead of the glaze-not a bad idea either! I'm glad this was a smaller cake... It was dangerous to have around the house:@)

 This is a 6 cup (half bundt pan) recipe. It was scaled down so it could be made in a pressure cooker if desired HERE
I did make one in the PC the same day and have to say, cakes ~really~ benefit from baking in the oven.
The oven rise is amazing, the PC cake was very dense. 
I haven't tried this in a loaf pan yet, but look forward to trying it soon.
I used an inexpensive white chip... Yea, don't do that... I recommend Ghiradelli for the best results.
Don't hesitate to whip up this tasty little cake folks, I think you'll be glad you did:@)
