Pumpkin Sheet Cake Recipe
The pastor at our church usually cuts his message short on carry-in dinner days when he knows this sheet cake is waiting in the fellowship hall. (I think he prays for leftovers since he gets to take them home!) This moist cake travels well and is also easy to prepare. -Nancy Baker, Boonville, Missouri
