According to Laurie Lufkin the secret to this prize winning recipe is the caramel sauce. The official name of the recipe is New England Buttermilk Pumpkin Cakes with Sour Cream Apple Caramel and Dried Cranberries. She created this dessert for a recipe contest that involved using a Hood dairy product, and in a moment of inspiration she used sour cream as one of the creaming agents for the caramel sauce topping. The result helped her to win a $10,000 prize and another step in her climb up the recipe contest ladder.
