Made a cake last night to take to Friday Lunch. It was a pretty big hit, especially considering as I had no idea what I was doing, and had no recipe to follow.
As I recall, here’s about how it came together:

    1 can-sized can of pumpkin glorp.
    1/2 cup or so sugar
    1/4 cup or so maple syrup
    A couple hard shakes of salt
    Not quite a teaspoon of baking soda. Or powder.

And: Some flour. Really no idea here… I just added flour to the wet mix bit by bit until I got a cake-battery consistency.

Baked in a buttered/floured pan, probably too large (made for a thin cake) for 375 degrees until done.

Cool, then slice in half and fill with a cup or so of tapioca custard. I doctored the custard with a 1/2 cup or so of cream cheese, softened and stirred into the hot custard.

It was yummy.
