Pumkin Spice Cake

I know it is not exactly pumpkin cooking season, but I love all things pumpkin! I make pumpkin food year round. This recipe is from my mother-in-law (a great cook herself) and it is so good! Perfect for feeding lots of mouths because it makes a ton!


4 eggs or 5 egg whites

2 cups sugar

1 cup oil or 1 cup applesauce

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups pumpkin

8 oz. cream cheese (fat free), softened

1 cube soft butter

2 cups powdered sugar

1 teaspoons vanilla

1. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray. Mix eggs and sugar together. Add in your oil/applesauce flour, soda, cinnamon, salt, and pumpkin. Pour into cookie sheet.

2. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

3. For frosting mix softened cream cheese and butter together. Add in powdered sugar carefully. Add vanilla in last. For stiffer frosting, add more powdered sugar.

4. Frost cake when completely cooled. Cut into bars and keep extras in fridge!

* For a healthier option you can make more of a glaze to go on top of your cake. Just cream together 4 oz. cream cheese, 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, and vanilla. Add milk to consistency that you like.

* be on the look out for pumpkin come soon!


  1. Britney - I LOVE your website! I tried the rolls last night and they turned out great. I can't believe how yummy they were. Thank you so much. This looks like a great recipe too. I'm a pumpkin lover so I think I'll give it a try!
    Thanks again!

  2. Super easy and delicious. Made it for our our dinner group tonight in a very short amount of time between work and dinner time. Simply frosted it after dinner. Thanks Britney!
