Hey Lauren, I was invited to a Christmas party this weekend so instead of bringing over an everyday appetizer, I wanted to make something that was inspired by Christmas colors.

Hey Jennifer, This is the pumpkin cake of all pumpkin cake! It is sooo good! It’s not healthy in any sense of the word but I don’t care because it is unblieably delicious and hey, it’s the holidays!!! This is such a versatile dish. It can be served as a breakfast “coffee cake”, or a dessert, or it could almost be considered pumpkin bread. I like to make it in mini loaf pans and wrap them up to... (more...)
