This is so moist, and delicious, I made this to take to a baby shower, made two of them, and there wasn't a piece left...many asked for the recipe, I used sugar pie pumpkin from my garden, that I pureed, and froze, it calls for canned pumpkin, whichever you prefer..This is not a picture of mine, but that is what it looks like..I wasn't posting recipes at that time, and never took pics of my food, but will from here on out..
