I have a cousin who has brought this cake to a family function twice and it is so delicious. She shared the recipe with me and it turned out wonderful.
1 Cup Oil
2 Cups White Sugar
15 oz. Can of Pumpkin
2 Cups All Purpose Flour2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Salt
2+ tsp. Cinnamon1
/2+ tsp. Ginger
1/2+ tsp. Cloves
1/2+ tsp. Nutmeg
Preheat oven 350* Mix first four ingredients. Mix together dry ingredients then add to pumpkin mixture. Pour into greased and floured pan. I use 14" x 10" and bake for 25-30 minutes. They can also be baked as cupcakes.
ICING: Beat 8 oz. cream cheese until softened. Add 1/4 cup butter or margerine and 1 tsp. vanilla until fluffy. Gradually add half a box of powered sugar (aprox. 2 cups).Beat until smooth.
Spead on top of cake and garnish with chopped nuts if desired.
