Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
Anyone who knows me well knows I love all things pumpkin!  This is one of my favorite recipes, and I can hardly wait to make it each Fall to celebrate the holidays.  It's so easy, and so yummy, you'll want this recipe for own! 


1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 cups canned pumpkin
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Spray 9x13 cake pan with non-stick spray.  Mix oil, sugar, eggs and pumpkin until smooth.  Sift dry ingredients and mix together with cake batter.  Spread evening into pan. Pre-heat oven to 350F; bake cake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center of the cake.  Cool completely before frosting.    

Frosting:
6 tablespoons for soft butter
4 ounces soft cream cheese
2 cups of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cream butter and cream cheese together, add vanilla.  Slowly mix in powdered sugar, until smooth.  May add a little milk if too thick.
