Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

(We love, love love this at our house and anyone who has tried it always wants the recipe!)






2 cups all purpose flour

2 cups sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder


1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon ground
cloves

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup oil

1 15 oz can of pumpkin

4 eggs




Frosting:



2 cups powdered sugar

1/3 cup margarine or butter,
softened

3 oz cream cheese,
softened

1 tablespoon milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

(or...do what I do, buy Cream Cheese Frosting, already made at the store; Pillsbury, Betty Crocker, Duncan Hines, etc, )





Heat oven to 350. Grease 15 x 10 pan. In large bowl, blend all cake ingredients at low speed until moistened. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed. Pour into prepared pan.



Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.



Cool.



In small bowl, combine frosting ingredients; beat until smooth. Spread over cooled cake.



Refrigerate leftovers.



Is that easy or what? Another reason why I love this recipe:) I am making some right now for Thanksgiving, yum!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
Bella

How fun to see this recipe on the web. I grew up with this same bar recipe! This was one of the very first things I ever learned to bake in about 3rd grade. My son is in 3rd this year and I'm sure he'd love to give it a try. Thanks for bringing back those memories of fun!

Yes, we love, love, love it too!
