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 😀
