Delicious cake and I’ve made it numerous times. Light and fluffy homemade pumpkin cake topped with delicious cream cheese frosting. Who can turn down cream cheese frosting, right? I’ll often find a lonely can of pumpkin in my cupboard sometimes and this is a great way to use it up!!
I am not the biggest fan of pie, so last year for Thanksgiving I was thinking of a pie alternative and thought to myself, “why not cake?” So that is where this magical creation began. This Pumpkin Sheet Cake is way easier to make than pie and can feed a crowd! This tasty cake can feed a crowd and everyone always loves it! This pumpkin dessert is perfect for Thanksgiving.
