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

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Grease a 13 x 9 rectangle cake pan.
  3. Beat eggs in a large mixing bowl. Add pumpkin, sugars and oil. Beat well.
  4. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt. Add to pumpkin mixture. Beat until well blended.
