pumpkin crunch cake recipe

Before we get too far past Thanksgiving I wanted to share one of our family’s favorite recipes ~ Pumpkin Crunch Cake.  We have this every year for Thanksgiving. We have also used this recipe for a birthday cake for my daughter, Cara. {Her birthday is TODAY!} I got this recipe from my friend, Hayley several years ago.  Now it has become a yummy family tradition.
