10.13.20 I had just enough pumpkin left in the fridge from pumpkin pancakes to make half a recipe which I baked it in an 8”x8” dish. Nothing fancy here, just a tender, moist, pumpkin-y, delicious cake! The spices are spot on, and don't even think about frosting it because you don't need it. And as a bonus, incredibly easy to make. Just enjoy its natural simplicity. Next time, I’ll add some chopped walnuts or pecans for a variation, but this one’s a keeper as is! Read More
