I also love recipes that are easy and flavorful, and this definitely fits the bill. Our friend, Tara, brought this dish to a potluck at our church a couple of years ago, and I fell in love with it. I like to add a little extra cinnamon. We never have to worry about leftovers with this cake.

We love pumpkin pie, but this recipe goes over the top where pumpkin is concerned. I like it even better than pumpkin pie. It has a rich pumpkin base and a buttery, crunchy, nutty top that makes it irresistible. What could be better? Maybe a bit of ice cream or whipped cream on top? Enjoy!
