This recipe is originally called Winter Shortcake but I think it's too yummy to save for next winter, so I've dubbed it Anytime Winter Shortcake. The combination of apple and cherry filling combined with the spicy taste of pumpkin in the cake sound just heavenly.

  2. Spread batter into a greased 8x1-1/2-inch round baking pan. Bake in a preheated 450-degree oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan. Split into 2 layers.
