Pumpkin Pudding Cake

This Pumpkin Pudding Cake is an easy dessert for fall gatherings and for Thanksgiving. It’s very moist and I like to serve it warm with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. Oh and as an extra bonus your house is going to smell delicious when this is baking with all of warm and cozy spices.
