I received this recipe from a dear friend of mine one Thanksgiving holiday so I can't take all the credit. Since making it that year it has become a special request every Thanksgiving and Christmas from family and friends. Some people will be scared of the fact that it's a PUMPKIN cake but when they try it, they will soon forget :) --- Enjoy!
