Fall is here and we see signs for hay rides, corn mazes and pumpkin patches! We love fall around here and can’t wait for all the weather to turn just a little bit cooler. Today, we bring you the perfect scrumptious dessert recipe for when your family returns home from a day spent finding the perfect pumpkin at the pumpkin patch! This cake combines some favorite fall flavors, spicy pumpkin pie and sweet cake.
Paying homage to our favorite fall movie, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, we call this the Great Pumpkin Cake.
