Recipe by Kristi Catalani

“This cake is a large hit with my household through the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. It is very moist and simply melts in your mouth. It is a yummy various to conventional pumpkin pie. This cake is sweet as is, or sprinkled with powdered sugar. It’s particularly tasty with a superb glaze drizzled on prime. The glaze that my household likes greatest is made with cream cheese and a bit of little bit of rum.”
