Pumpkin Spice Cake
1 Can (16 oz.) pumpkin (about 2 cups)
2 Cups sugar (I used organic sugar)
1 Cup vegetable oil (I used grapeseed oil)
4 eggs, slightly beaten
2 Cups flour (I used organic, unbleached flour)
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
(I also added: 1 tsp ginger and 1/4 tsp nutmeg)
1/2 tsp. salt
Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. In large mixing bowl, beat pumpkin, sugar, and oil. Add eggs and mix well. Add the dry ingredients to pumpkin mixture, and beat until well blended. Pour into a greased 15" x 10" baking pan, or cupcake pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until cake tests done with a toothpick. Cool
Her recipe calls for a cream cheese frosting, but I used IMBC (Italian Meringue Buttercream) instead with a couple of dashes of cinnamon added. I then sprinkled the top with cinnamon, I didn't have time to decorate the cake so they had cupcakes instead.
I am now taking orders for my fruitcake. It is $5 for a miniloaf or $15 for a standard size loaf. Be sure to order now to reserve your loaf!
