White Chocolate Pumpkin Earthquake Cake Recipe

We love pumpkin around here. Love it!

I look forward to Fall all year long so I can consume all things pumpkin. I know I can technically make pumpkin treats whenever I want but it’s just not the same.

Pumpkin is for Fall. I’ve had this pumpkin earthquake cake recipe for years but I decided to tweak it and fancy it up some this year.

It’s delicious! I’ve made it twice in the last 2 weeks. I should be ashamed to tell you that, but I’m not because PUMPKIN!

Let me tell you how good this earthquake cake is- I meant to get a close up shot of a slice for you.

But it didn’t last long enough! I took it with us to a friends’ house for dinner this last weekend and it was gone so fast!

I highly recommend this one. I might even make it for Thanksgiving!
