I hadn't yet made anything with pumpkin for the season so last night I pulled out my Kraft Food & Family magazines (if you don't subscribe to these, you need to! Soooo many delicious recipes that are easy and family friendly!) and found this delicious recipe in the Fall 2007 issue.
I just HAD to share it here because it is a new FAVORITE! YUUUUUUMMMMMMM! If you like Spice Cake you will LOVE this cake. :) It is so moist and delicious . . . definitely family party or potluck perfect! :D (photo from Kraft Foods website)
