Pumpkin Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting

This is a recipe from my Great-Grandmother. They are actually bars, but last time I made them I thought that they would make a great cake since it is actually "cake". I thought this would be a great way to honor her, I miss her very much. They are very yummy and great for Thanksgiving time!

This sounds absolutely yummy! Gonna give it a try. I'll let you know how it goes...
Trying it right now!! Can't wait to pull it out of the oven!
Very pleased with the outcome! Only difference I made was, I only used 1/4 tsp Cloves. I also added some Pampered Chef Sweet Cinnamon sprinkle to the bottom of a few, and WOW!!! Thanks for sharing this recipe :)
This was excellent. Only problem I am having is it is quite soft/moist which makes for difficulty in stacking layers. Any suggestions?? I might try adding a touch more flour or cutting back on the oil.
