Sonna, a teacher's aide at Woodham High School, used to bake this cake for us at Thanksgiving every year. It's easy and oh, so very good! Of course, I like almost any cake with cream cheese frosting, and this one has it.

4
eggs
2 c
sifted all-purpose flour
2 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
salt
2 tsp
cinnamon
1/2 tsp
ginger
1/4 tsp
nutmeg
2 c
granulated sugar
1 c
vegetable oil
1 can(s)
(15-oz.) pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix!)

CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

1 pkg
8-oz. cream cheese, softened
3 c
sifted confectioners' sugar
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 c
chopped pecans

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Sift all dry ingredients together.
2
Beat eggs with sugar until fluffy. Add oil, then pumpkin.
3
Add sifted dry ingredients and stir just until mixed.
4
Bake in a greased and floured tube pan at 350 for about an hour.
5
You can also bake this cake in layers. They'll take less time. Since I've never baked it in layers, I don't know exactly how long, though.
6
Cream Cheese Frosting: Mix all ingredients together with an electric mixer and spread all over cake.
