I love watching the reaction of my boys sampling my baked goods. I gave them a bite after school a couple days ago of this sheet cake and their expression was priceless. If I left the room, I am afraid the entire plate would have been devoured. This recipe is that good my friends :) In fact, it will be making an appearance for Thanksgiving and probably Christmas for sure!
Don’t let the cake mix in the recipe scare you away. I assure you, no one will know this is a jazzed up cake mix recipe. It is gooey and tastes just like a sweet pumpkin cinnamon roll in square cake form.
Try it out for yourself and let me know how that first bite was :) Enjoy!!
Here you have your line up of ingredients. You are likely to have most of these things in your kitchen right now!
Let’s get this party started :) Start with dumping all of the cake ingredients into the mixer. No particular order.
A small box of instant pudding mix does wonders!
Add those eggs.
Oil, milk and sour cream.
Add a can of pumpkin.
How gorgeous is that?!
Here it comes!
Spread the cake evenly to the edges.
Melt your butter, add the brown sugar and cinnamon
Time to drizzle!
Run a knife through to swirl the goodness then bake 350 for 30-35 minutes.
Here’s a shot of how it looks right after baking, wait until you smell this!
When the cake comes out of the oven, whip up the drizzle.
Drizzle while the cake is still warm….
….so it melts lovely like this
Love! Enjoy friends
