Pumpkin Blowout. Pumpkin Brats. Pumpkin Cranberry Muffins. Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin! And now Pumpkin Snack Cake?! It’s almost too much to handle – almost. In fact, who am I kidding? We love pumpkin over here – especially when it comes in snack cake form!
With cinnamon, vanilla and of course, pumpkin, this fall-flavored sweet treat is perfectly paired with a decadent, yet lightened-up cream cheese frosting that is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth. It’s desserts like these that make us wish pumpkin season could be all year long!
