Pumpkin Cream Cake… my latest and greatest!
Fall is right around the corner and I seriously cannot wait for ALL THINGS PUMPKIN!! This little recipe right here tastes like FALL ON A PLATE! Haha, I created this recipe and had people help me out with a name for it. Y’all are creative! I loved the Fall On A Plate but choose Pumpkin Cream Cake because was just perfect. But really, this tastes like a pumpkin pie will a creamy center! AND I am happy to say this is gluten-free, low-carb, nut-free (unless you add it to the batter like I did), and sugar-free (unless you add a little Ready Whip to the top). For all my Trim Healthy Mama buddies out there this is ON PLAN and an S dessert… so you can have your cake and eat it too!! And for those of your who do not know about Trim Healthy Mama just follow the link and check out their page!!
**NOTE- I use coconut flour for this cake. Usually with coconut flour your would need to have TONS of eggs to keep it from drying out but the canned pumpkin really keeps the coconut flour moist. No dryness going on here! I use a really fine organic coconut flour that I found at my local HEB. I’ve used it before in other recipes of mine.
I also want to note that I used my favorite sweetener… THM Gentle Sweet made by Trim Healthy Mama (you can also find that on their page link above). This sweetener is a blend of erythritol, xylitol and stevia. If you do not have this you can use Truvia or even Stevia straight but the measurement size will vary. You can also use straight Erythritol or Xylitol.
