  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 5 whole Eggs separated
  • 1 cup Sugar Divided
  • 1 teaspoon LorAnn Pumpkin Spice Flavor Emulsifier
  • 1/3 cup Milk

Pumpkin Tres Leches Cream

  • 1 can Evaporated Milk
  • 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1/4 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Amaretto Whipped Cream Topping

  • 2 cups Heavy Cream For Whipping
  • 1/8 teaspoon LorAnn Amaretto Flavored Oil
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with baking spray, or grease the pan with butter and flour.
  • In a large bowl sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Separate eggs yolks from egg whites.
  • In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks with 3/4 cup sugar on high speed until the color is a pale yellow. Stir in milk and pumpkin emulsifier. Pour egg yolk mixture over the flour mixture and stir until just combined.
  • Beat egg whites on high speed until soft peaks form. Then add in remaining 1/4 cup sugar and beat until egg whites are stiff.
  • Gently fold egg white mixture into the batter until just combined. Pour batter evenly into prepared pan. Spread batter with a spatula to even it out.
  • Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Invert cake out onto a platter and let cool.
  • Combine condensed milk, evaporated milk, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and heavy cream in a bowl. When cake is cool, pierce the surface numerous times with a fork. Slowly pour the pumpkin cream mixture over the cake.
  • Allow the cake to absorb the milk mixture for at least 30 minutes. I recommend covering the cake and refrigerating overnight.
  • For the amaretto whipped topping, whip 1 pint heavy cream with 1/8th teaspoon amaretto flavored oil and 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar until it is thick and spreadable.
  • Spread the whipped topping evenly over the cake. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Cut into squares and serve.
