You really NEED to make it at least once.

And I highly doubt you will go back to your old recipe!

This cake is very rich since it uses BOTH, butter and oil.


It’s also very FLAVORFUL since it’s packed with numerous spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and cloves but the spices are balances and not over-whelming.

This recipe also uses about 2 cups of pumpkin puree and 4 eggs, which results in a super MOIST cake.

Something about Fall always makes me CRAVE this spicy cake.

Eating it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside…I know it’s silly but it makes me feel so relaxed and HAPPY..hehehe.
