Chai Spiced Pumpkin Cake (that happens to be vegan) Recipe

Want to impress your family this holiday season? Want everyone to say "are you SURE this is vegan."? Look no further! This recipe for our Vegan Chai Spiced Pumpkin Cake is just the thing you need to wow this holiday season.

Pumpkin pie is usually a holiday staple for us, but lately we have been inspired to mix things up in the kitchen and what is a better dessert than a warm piece of cake with a scoop of creamy ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream? The answer is NOT MUCH!

We'll spare the heartfelt story of how this recipe came to be and dive right in, but if you're looking for a nice story, head here to learn about Kirsten's cute grandma and why we're called Doozy Pots.

Happy Holidays from Team Doozy Pots!
