Simple Pumpkin Snack Cake No frosting needed!

Simple Pumpkin Snack Cake is dairy free and even freezes well!

Simple Pumpkin Snack Cake is my go-to pumpkin cake recipe. It can be made ahead and frozen and is easily doubled to eat one now and one later. It is great even without frosting so that makes it simple (and neater!) to take to a potluck or to eat on the go. Simple Pumpkin Snack Cake is not overly sweet but moist and delicious for any time eating.

I have had this recipe for decades and I am sorry to say I cannot tell you where I got it originally. I have looked through all of my cookbooks and online and have not found it. One thing for sure is that it has been made many times and been enjoyed by many people over the years!
