Pumpkin Spice Cake

It's time for one last Sneak Peek before tomorrows BIG unveiling of my newest MBS project and to help celebrate (and to make the waiting sweeter) I've baked you one of my favorite Fall Desserts called Pumpkin Spice Cake. If you take a closer look you'll see one of the projects peeking out from under the cake plate and fall berries.

Mmmmm. . . Yummy Goodness!!!

Pumpkin Spice Cake
Recipe given to me by my friend, Christie!

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Mix the following ingredients in a bowl:
  • One 15oz. can of Pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup Canola Oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
Add to the mixture:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice (I googled pumpkin pie spice ingredients, go here)
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
Pour mixture into a greased and floured jelly roll pan (that measures 13" x 18" x 1" deep). Bake @ 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes Let cool.

Cream Cheese Frosting

Mix the following ingredients in a bowl:

  • 8 0z. package (softened) cream cheese
  • 8 tbsp. (softened) butter
  • 3-4 tbsp. milk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 6 cups powdered sugar
Spread frosting over the cooled cake and top with...
  • 1 cup chopped pecans (more if you like lots of pecans)
We love to keep our pumpkin spice cake in the refrigerator and serve it with a cold glass of milk. Yummy Yum Yum!

We'll see you tomorrow for the BIG unveiling of my newest project on Moda's Bake Shop and I'll be announcing another fun giveaway that I'll be sponsoring on my blog to help WELCOME the Wonderful FALL Season.

Don't you just LOVE the seasons?

Just one piece for me, please, I don't want to be a hog.
But I will have a cup of java to go with that.

Dear onlymehere,

I tried to reply to you comment but you have your email set to noreply-comment and I tried to go to your blog to leave a comment but it's not public. So, I hope you read this comment or see that I put the pan measurements in my post.

Hugs, Kim
