Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray an 8×8 or 9×9 inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. (A 9×9 was used in the pictures above)
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together egg and sugars. Whisk in yogurt and vanilla. Stir in pumpkin until well combined. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir until combined.
  4. Spread half of batter into prepared baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven.
  5. In a small sauce pan, stir together brown sugar and half & half. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Stirring constantly, allow sugar mixture to boil until sugar dissolves and mixture starts to turn a darker brown. This will take about 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in butter and salt until butter is melted. Stir for another 2 minutes to cool the mixture slightly.
  6. Pour caramel over the top of cake and spread with a spoon. Stir milk into remaining batter and pour batter over the top of the caramel layer.
  7. Bake for another 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  8. Remove cake to a wire rack to cool.
  9. While cake is cooling, prepare glaze. In a small saucepan, stir together brown sugar and half & half. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir constantly until sugar dissolves and mixture starts to turn a dark brown. This will take 4-5 minutes. Reduce heat to low and stir in butter until combined. Stir in powder sugar until smooth.
  10. Remove from heat and pour over cake. Spread with a spatula or back of spoon. Sprinkle with sea salt. Cut into pieces and serve.
