From September to November, all I see are pumpkin cake/bars recipes on Pinterest and Instagram. Heck, they've even taken over Snapchat! This isn't a bad thing; however, most of these recipes are just thrown together in an attempt to keep up with the fall recipe demand. The recipe I'm sharing with you all has been hand-crafted, tested, and approved by family, friends, and many of my customers at farmers markets and from my local orders. I promise that once you use this recipe, you will never need another again. Let's get cooking!
