Pumpkin Pudding Cake

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Alskann

I got this recipe from a friend 30 years ago and it was always a favorite at family get togethers and potlucks. Over the years, through several moves, the recipe was lost. I have tried several similar, but none were quite the same. Well, I just found the original recipe and am posting it here for safe keeping. Enjoy! (I know I will).

My wife, Janet, does amazing things with Dutch Ovens, and this is one of our family's favorites. It is easy to make on a camping trip, is always a crowd-pleaser, and never fails to get her raves and accolades. I would give it (and her) 6 stars if I could!
