Gluten-Free Pumpkin Recipes: Pumpkin Walnut Cake

Gluten Free Pumpkin Walnut Cake[1] (1)Pumpkin season is officially upon us, and while I know lots of those tasty pumpkin spice treats out there are off-limits to my gluten-free peeps, Simply Gluten-Free has a couple of sweet pumpkin recipes for us to share this week!
The first is a pumpkin walnut cake that basically just screams autumn to me. Pumpkin puree, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and vanilla give this the pop of fall flavor we’re all craving right now. And be sure to check back later this week — we’ll also be sharing Simply Gluten-Free’s recipe for no-bake pumpkin cheesecake. If you’re interested in other g-free recipes, you can find this issue on newstands through the end of the month!
