Pumpkin Tres Leches
- 2 cups all-purpose flour*
- 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup Dixie Crystals Light Brown Sugar
- 1/2 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar

- 3/4 cup cream
- 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
- 12 ounces evaporated milk

- Preheat oven to 350ºF.
- Whisk together dry ingredients for cake.
- Add oil, eggs, vanilla, and pumpkin, and whisk to combine and form a batter.
- Pour batter into a greased 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool for about 30 minutes.
- Use a fork to poke holes all over top of cake.
- Whisk together the milk, cream, sweetened condensed, and evaporated milk.
- Pour milk mixture over cake. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour (all liquid should be absorbed).
- Spread whipped topping over cake and sprinkle with cinnamon. Keep chilled until ready to serve.
