This vegan pumpkin spice cake recipe is easy, moist, sweet and full of the flavors of the fall and of the Caribbean. This butter loaf works great as an after school / back to school snack or treat for kids, mini breakfast muffins, or is great with a pumpkin spice latte for pumpkin-inspired breakfast. To create this recipe, I veganized my Trini Granny’s classic sponge cake recipe and added pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice and Angostura bitters to achieve a spice cake that tastes like a grandmother from the islands just finished baking it up. Check out the full recipe below!
