Recipe by keaolyen
One of my wife's co-workers made this for a holiday party and she loved it so much that she got a copy of the recipe to make at home. Since I use Food.com to consolidate all of my dishes (makes shopping so much easier) it became my task to track down the original recipe and transfer it here. I found the original at http://sweettreatsmore.com/2011/11/pumpkin-lust-cake/ so credit to them.
