This recipe has been passed down in my family for a few generations. And I’m sure my daughters will be making it as well, it’s that good;)

Between this recipe and my Apple Cake recipe, the holidays will be super yummy:)

Pumpkin Cake Recipe

Every Thanksgiving, and even every Christmas (yes it’s requested that much) my mom or grandmother makes this cake! In fact if the cake wasn’t sitting on the desert table every Thanksgiving and Christmas, there would probably be a family uprising;)

It’s so good that my daughter even requested it to be used in her ballet birthday cake this year! And I use it in the halloween cake I make for our annual halloween party as well:)

So, you get the idea;) AMAZING cake! In fact, I’m totally wishing I had the cake right now! Literally I’m almost drooling I want it so badly! I’m going to need to make this soon, very soon!
