Pumpkin Cake πŸ‚

Wishing everyone a Happy Friday!! In my last post, I wrote about the Health Benefits of Pumpkin. But let’s be serious, we all have a sweet tooth!!! Below is my recipe for Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Icing. Now I am particular about icing and this recipe is one that I absolutely love. Note – if you have someone in your life that loves baked goods, you may have to hide this cake or it will be gone in an instant.


INGREDIENTS

β€’ 2 cups all-purpose flour


β€’ 2 cups sugar

β€’ 2 teaspoons baking powder

β€’ 1 teaspoon baking soda

β€’ 1 teaspoon cinnamon

β€’ 1 teaspoon nutmeg

β€’ 1/2 teaspoon salt

β€’ 1/2 teaspoon cloves

β€’ 1 cup oil

β€’ 2 cups pumpkin

β€’ 4 eggs

FROSTING

β€’ 2 cups powdered sugar

β€’ 1/3 cup butter, softened

β€’ 1 (3-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened

β€’ 1 tablespoon almond milk

β€’ 1 teaspoon vanilla

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Heat oven to 350Β°F. Grease a 13 x 8 inch baking pan. In large bowl, combine all the ingredients; beat at low speed until moistened. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed. Pour into greased pan.

2. Bake at 350Β°F. for 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 45 minutes or until completely cooled. (NOTE: In large glass pyrex baking pan it takes me 43 minutes to bake.)

3. In small bowl, combine all frosting ingredients; beat until smooth. Spread over the cake once it’s cooled. Store in refrigerator.

Hope you enjoy this recipe!
