"My friend Dawn sent me this recipe to try, and I did... It's like a pumpkiny custard on the bottom and crumb topping on top, and loaded with nuts. It's just plain wonderful! Great anytime, but especially for the holidays because it's a lot easier and quicker than making a pie!"

We felt like having something with pumpkin so my wife whipped this up for us on the spur of the moment. It is super delicious and so satisfying for that sweet tooth!

I made this with canned pumpkin and I plan to make another one when Halloween is over and I can use the kids pumpkins. The topping is so delicious and the cake is even better! We loved everything about this cake and it was so good out of the fridge. We look forward to having our next one and I am sure we will have it many other times, maybe even for Thanksgiving!
