Maple Glazed Pumpkin Cake

I feel like I've been slacking on the pumpkin recipes! :P I've been so very busy, it's crazy. Just like everyone else I'm sure. I am, again, backlogged. But I thought I'd share this quick and easy cake. The glaze is just a quick one whisk together, melted butter (1 tablespoon), maple syrup (2-3 tablespoons), powdered sugar. Add milk to thin if needed.
