Pumpkin Spice Cake

Mylinda Butterworth


My daughter loves pumpkin. One day we were in the grocery store and she saw a pumpkin roll in the cooler section and wanted it. I said, "I can make that." So I went home and looked over the recipes and didn't really like any so I took a Applesauce Spice Pound Cake recipe of my mother-in-laws and made some adjustments and put it into a jelly roll pan and created my own Pumpkin Spice Cake. It is moist and has a delightful pumpkin spice flavor. As you can see from the picture it was mostly gone before I got a picture.
