Blue Ribbon Recipe

If you think you don't like pumpkin desserts, give this cake a try. There's a hint of pumpkin flavor but it's not overpowering. Pumpkin puree helps to make the yellow cake super moist. Sweetened condensed milk also adds moisture to the cake and provides so much sweet flavor. Creamy Cool Whip on top with crunchy Heath bar bits is the perfect topping. Insanely easy to make, try this cake whenever you're trying to satisfy your sweet tooth.
