I have had this recipe for years. It is one of my favorite recipes for the Fall. When I was 18, I won my first baking contest with this recipe.

How to Make Spiced Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Step-by-Step

  2. Grease a 13 x 9 rectangle cake pan.

  4. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt. Add to pumpkin mixture. Beat until well blended.
