Recipe of the Month: Pumpkin Gingerbread Snacking Cake

This cake is worth every, single, glorious carb and then some!  It is my favourite fall dessert recipe, and you know where I discovered it?  In the newspaper about 8 years ago!  It’s the one and only time I’ve ever clipped a recipe out of a newspaper, but it is by far one of our…
