Directions

Preheat the oven at 350F. Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
In a medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients and spices. Mix them together using a whisk.
In a separate bowl, incorporate the sugar, vegetable oil, vanilla extract and pumpkin and whisk them together. Beat the eggs one at a time and mix them into the mixture.
Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Be sure to leave any trace of the flour mixture.
Pour the mixture into the baking pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes. To check if the cake is fully baked, use a toothpick until it comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool down for 20 minutes. Using a fork, poke holes into the cake. This will drain the tres leches mixture through the cake.
Tres leches:
In a measuring cup, combine the evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, coconut milk (or almond milk), and pure pumpkin and mix well using a fork or small whisk. Pour the milk mixture into the cake. Cover the cake with a lid or aluminum foil and let it chill for 4 hours or overnight.
Spiced cream:
Using an electric mixer, beat the heavy whipping cream, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla until it becomes fluffy.
Once the milk mixture is incorporated with the cake and appears like a sponge, spread the spiced cream.
Enjoy!
