To keep me (and myhusband) from weighing a ton, I like to bake for others. I typically take my treats to my office, his office or to church gatherings. Nothing like a big potluck to present your latest new dessert recipe. Throw in a stick of butter and some nuts and it is a sure winner!
I think fall is a great time for desserts because the weather cools off and the fluffy sweaters come out! One of my favorite fall sweets is from our Sunday School teachers wife. She brought this for breakfast one day last year. For breakfast!!
Here is the recipe for you to try at home:
Pumpkin Crunch Cake

14 oz. can pumpkin
12 oz. can evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups white sugar
