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.


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


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


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!

We Remember….

On the 15th. Anniversary of 9/11, I wanted to take a moment take pause and remember all the lives lost that day. To the families who lost a loved one, my heartfelt condolences and prayers are sent out. Today we not only honor the lives lost, the first responders who have permanent health issues from that day and those who continue to fight for our lives and freedom.
