Pumpkin Spice Cake

Ryanne Brown


I am in love with all things pumpkin. My friends and my husband love when I make this cake. It makes the house smell wonderful and it tastes just as good! I hope you come to love it as much as we have!

2 c
3/4 c
vegetable oil
1 tsp
vanilla extract
2 c
canned pumpkin
2 c
all purpose flour
1/2 c
3 tsp
baking powder
2 tsp
baking soda
1/4 tsp
2 tsp
ground cinnamon
1 tsp
ground cloves
1 1/2 tsp
1/4 tsp
ground ginger
1 tsp
allspice, ground


1Preheat the oven to 350. Grease and flour a 12 X 18 in. pan - I prefer to use a bundt pan and I spray the inside of the pan with Baker's Joy.
2In a medium size bowl, sift together: flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger. Set aside.
3In a large bowl, combine sugar and oil.
4Blend in vanilla, applesauce, and pumpkin until smooth.
5Once blended, beat in each egg - one at a time. Gradually beat in your flour mixture.
6Spread batter into the pan. Bake for 30 minutes(12x18pan) - 45/50 minutes (bundt pan) or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool. Cover with your favorite topping. (We like to use cinnamon and sugar to sprinkle over the top of the cake.)
7Also makes 28 muffins - 3/4 full ~ bake for 18-20 minutes. You can substitute the pumpkin with 2 cups of unsweetened apple butter for an apple spice cake.
