This morning, we were studying United States geography, and at the end of the chapter was a section of American recipes.
This Pumpkin Cake was included, and when I saw how simple it was and realized that we had all of the ingredients, we decided to make it. The end result was a moist, delicious, pretty treat that was perfect for this fall afternoon.
