Posted by flavacakesThis 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!
Pumpkin Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting
- 2 c. sugar 4 eggs 1 c. oil 1- 15 oz. canned pumpkin Mix above ingredients and set aside. Sift the following and add to above mixture. 2 c. flour 2 tsp. baking powder 1 tsp. baking soda 2 tsp. cinnamon 1/2 tsp. ginger 1/2 tsp. cloves 1/2 tsp.salt 1/2 tsp.nutmeg Mix well and pour into greased and floured pans. *If making bars use 12x18 pan or 2 9x13 pans. *If making cake, I think 2- 8 or 9in. rounds would work. (I just kind of guess on which pans to use!) Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cream Cheese Frosting 1- 8 oz. package of cream cheese 3/4 stick of butter or crisco 1 Tbls milk or cream 1 tsp. vanilla 4 c. powdered sugar Beat cheese, butter, vanilla and cream together until soft. Add powdered sugar until correct consistency to spread. Will freeze well.
