Pumpkin Spice Cake With Cream Cheese Icing

This is perfect for the fall weather and tastes so good. I think it tastes a little better the next day, as many cakes do. My son thought it was a carrot cake at first. This was supposed to be a brownie recipe, but the cake rises too much for me to call it a brownie. Still absolutely wonderful. I add more cinnamon than directed to the icing, but see what suits your taste. I'm sure you could sub a few teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice for the cinnamon and other spices and still have it taste fantastic.

Mmmm, the spiciness of the cream cheese icing is the perfect finishing touch for this delicate, moist pumpkin spice cake. The seasoning is not strong in this fluffy cake. Mostly cinnamon flavor comes through since it's in the cake and icing. This is not a very thick cream cheese icing. It's thin, but frosts the cake nicely and brings the flavor of the whole cake together. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
