The BEST pumpkin pie cake ever! Mom’s recipes are truly everyone’s favorites and we couldn’t wait to share with you this one!
I love my mom. I bet you love your mom too, but I just truly adore mine. She’s so darn giving, slow to get angry, and quick to give love. She’s a fantastic listener and good mercy is she a hard worker. My mom keeps the best garden all summer long, freezes, cans and stores like all of it, which is pretty amazing considering her garden is bigger than most back yards. But outside of all of that I love my mom’s cooking. Well, not goulash, but the rest. Like this pumpkin pie cake recipe.
Mom grew up in a little farming town and so her meals are good, basic, home cookin’ meals and I love that. Her cheesy rice and ground beef casserole and taco stew are literally our top two recipes on the site and many of her others are up there as well. How awesome is that?
It only uses a few ingredients and it literally tastes like pumpkin pie but with a soft, delicate texture of a cake. So the pie haters can still have their pumpkin without the texture issue of the pie filling. Which I honestly don’t understand as I’ve really grown to adore pumpkin pie, but to each his own.
