Starbucks Pumpkin Pound Cake Recipe

I know it's been ages since I mentioned my new apartment but I've finally had an update this week. I was able to see the inside at an inspection held by the real estate agency. It was exciting to be able to see inside (rather than just driving by and trying to see what had been updated all the time), and while I was a little overwhelmed at how small the apartment is, I'm now looking forward to seeing what it will look like once I've moved in. It's going to be an interesting challenge getting that balance between having all that I need in there without it looking cluttered. Here's a sneak peak, I'll post more photos once I'm all moved in and have it decorated the way I want it. Isn't it pretty though?!
What better excuse to do some baking and to try out one of my many pinned recipes on Pinterest? I had a tin of pumpkin purée in the pantry so I thought I'd try out this recipe for Starbuck's Pumpkin Pound Cake. Although apparently this recipe is for a modified and slightly more healthy version of the Starbuck's one it still tastes fantastic. The spices also add a lot of flavour to what's a very dense but moist cake. 
Starbucks Pumpkin Pound Cake
1 1/2 cup Plain Flour
1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Ground Cloves
1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1/2 cup Fat Free Vanilla Yoghurt
3 Egg Whites
1 cup Canned Pumpkin
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Grease a loaf pan, set aside. 
2. Sift the flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cloves and nutmeg into a mixing bowl. Set aside.
3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, yoghurt and egg whites. Whisk thoroughly until blended. Stir in the pumpkin. Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture. Stir until completely incorporated.
4. Pour into pan and bake for 60 minutes, or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool on a wire rack.
5. Once cool, drizzle with a glaze or top with cream cheese icing (if desired)
