Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
When Fall weather starts to cool things off here on the creek, it's time for a pumpkin cake. A nice big pot of hot tea also, can't forget that one. I just love the way this cake smells while baking in the oven... It makes the whole house smell of Fall. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek.
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups oil
2 cups all purpose flour
3 t cinnamon
1 t salt
2 t baking soda
1 1/2 t baking powder
2 cups canned pumpkin
2- 8 ounce packages of cream cheese at room temperature
4 cups powder sugar
Cream together eggs, sugar, add oil. Once creamed add in pumpkin. Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Now add flour a cup at a time to mixture. Pour into a greased and floured tube pan. Bake at 350' for 55 minutes or until it tests done with a cake tester. Cool completely before removing from pan.
Beat cream cheese until fluffy and add the powdered sugar a cup at a time alternating with the milk. Mix until creamy. Spread on icing and enjoy!
