Barney's is a seasonal outdoor "little red shack" family run Bar-B-Q restaurant that opened in St. Louis in 1963. They are known for this homemade pumpkin cake dessert. I tried a combination of several recipes until I came up with this one that taste very similar to this family favorite. Whenever I take this cake to a function it gets rave reviews. I think the secret is the added vanilla.
