Pumpkin Pie Cake

Pumpkin Pie Cake

Instead of pumpkin pie, try a pumpkin pie cake this year.  All the flavor and goodness of pie but so much easier in cake form!

I have to admit, I have not always been a fan of pumpkin pie but as I have gotten older  and wiser I have come to understand the beauty of pumpkin pie and pumpkin in general.  But I have to confess, I have never made a pumpkin pie.  I have made pumpkin cheesecake,  pumpkin bars, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin chili, pumpkin soup, pumpkin waffles  and a few other pumpkins recipes.  Just search pumpkin on the blog for more!  But, amongst all those pumpkin recipes, you will not find a pumpkin pie recipe.  The closest I’ve come is a pumpkin pie milkshake!
