Grain Free Pumpkin Spice Cake

This cake gets a big smiling stamp of approval from all three boys, and I definitely agree.  By far this is the most success I've had with grain free baking.

Recipe originally from detoxinista - thank you!

1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup almond butter
1/3 cup honey
2 eggs
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger (I left this out because I didn't have any)
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cloves

1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 350F and grease an 8" x 8" pan generously with coconut oil.

Combine all the ingredients and mix well until a smooth batter forms.  (This takes longer than you might think - I let my kitchenaid do the work for a few minutes.)

Pour batter into the pan and bake for 20-35 minutes (original recipe says 20-25, but mine took 35 before being firm in the center.)

Allow to cool completely in the pan, then cut and enjoy!

I wonder if Dad could eat this? Hmmm. Is it like a baked pudding?
