Frost on the Pumpkin Cake

A few years ago my dear friend Kimberly was living abroad in Bahrain and emailed me a recipe for the best pumpkin cake she'd ever had. She had gone to a church activity and went through a bit of work to try and track down the woman who made the pumpkin cake. Turns out the woman had come from Saudi, where apparently the pumpkin cake is amazing! Kimberly emailed me the recipe and my mom made it for my 30th birthday and it made my day. I made it again just this weekend and once again it got rave reviews. It is a very moist cake, but not dense, quite fluffy. And the cream cheese frosting puts it over the top. The recipe makes a 9 x 13 pan, and you get nice, thick pieces. Add this to your pumpkin recipes today, and thanks Kimberly!
