Thanksgiving is over, and hopefully you have lots of pumpkin purée leftover like I did. Luckily for us, pumpkins are relatively low in carbs. This cake is a perfect dessert for the autumn and winter holidays, and I hope you enjoy. You can substitute the monk fruit sweetener for one of your choice, but be sure to reference a conversion chart. If you decide to experiment and change up the recipe, let me know what you tried, and how it turned out!
