Snack Cake Ingredients
Pure Pumpkin: Be sure you are using Pure Pumpkin (formerly known as pumpkin puree), not pumpkin pie filling for this recipe. Pure pumpkin is cooked pumpkin that is blended or mashed into a smooth texture. There should be no seasoning, spice, flavoring, or sugar added. We are adding our own seasoning and sweetness to the filling.
Pumpkin Pie Spice: If you don’t have any on hand, make your own homemade pumpkin pie spice for all of your Fall recipes, including this one!

To freeze this cake, just make sure to use an airtight, freezer-safe container that is labeled and dated. If stored properly, the cake should last up to three months in the freezer.
