Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting by Guest Chef Janie
This deliciously moist pumpkin cake topped with cream cheese frosting adds up to one irresistible autumn treat! This cake has become a fall tradition, and after making it for the first time--this season I was once again showered with rave reviews from my family. I first tried this cake at a party at my sister's house at least ten years ago, I knew I had to have the recipe and here it is for you!
1 can pumpkin or cook your own (15 oz)
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
4 eggs beaten
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. nutmeg
Cream together: pumpkin, sugar, oil, eggs. In a seperate bowl combine dry ingredients and mix thouroughly. Then add to the pumpkin mixture, mix well. Grease a 9x13 pan or two round cake pans. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Let cool before frosting. Garnish wtih nutmeg.
