Pumpkin Pie Cake Recipe

Pumpkin Pie Cake Recipe
Pumpkin is always popular in the fall, so this luscious, moist Pumpkin Pie Cakeis the perfect dessert to serve from September through December. It’s fancy enough to serve guests or add to a holiday dessert buffet, but easy enough to prepare for a weeknight or weekend supper. It’s actually a cross between a cake and a pie, which will make everybody happy.
This luscious cake recipe was adapted from one I found online. I have made a few changes to accommodate my family’s tastes and easier preparation. This is definitely one to try.
