This recipe came to me via Taste of Home. It was submitted by Roberta Peck, Forthill, Pennsylvania. She won a ribbon for it; because it is SO GOOD! It's good any time of the year, but it is a fave for Fall, Thanksgiving and Christmas! I make it for my family of course, but it also makes a beautiful gift. I've even made it in individual little bundt cakes, and taken it with a small container of the sauce to go with! A genuine hit everytime! The bake time below does not include cooling time.

How to Make Pumpkin Cake with Caramel Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg and salt. In another bowl, beat the eggs, pumpkin and oil until smooth; add to the dry ingredients. Mix until well blended, about 1 minute.
  2. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

    Note: I frequently make it in a Bundt Pan and pour the sauce over the top (and/or) of the cake.
  3. For sauce, combine the brown sugar, flour and salt in a small saucepan. Stir in water and butter; bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Cut cake into squares and serve with warm sauce. Yield: 12-16 servings.
