‘Tis the season to be a pumpkin!


  • 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup of pumpkin puree


  1. Mix all the ingredients in a medium bowl until it becomes a smooth, lightly brown mixture.
  2. Pour it into a 13 x 9 pan and spread evenly.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 min


  • 8 oz of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup of sifted powdered sugar
  • 6 tablespoons of softened butter
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Finishing touch:

  1. While the cake is baking, prepare the cream cheese frosting.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until they create a smooth paste.
  3. Β After the cake has cooled down, spread the frosting on top.


This is one of my favorite fall recipes. It is a quick and simple cake, yet it is very delicious. It is perfect for someone who is just starting their baking journey. However, I highly recommend it to everyone. Let me know in the comments how you like it.

Enjoy! πŸ™‚

    Hi Again!
    I tried the pumpkin cake recipe and served it to my husband as a surprise dessert. He was delighted!!
    I made a couple of adjustments: Maple sugar instead of cane sugar; a spoonful of coffee liqueur in the frosting; topped off the cake with a sprinkling of white chocolate chips and ginger chips. It was truly delectable!
    I’d love to send a photo, but guess we can’t do that on WordPress comment boxes.
    Perhaps I’ll post it on my site, and link to yours. Would that be okay with you?
    Thanks for the recipe and I’ll follow your blog for more ideas!


    1. I’m ok with you linking it to mine. I would love to see pictures of the pumpkin cake you made! Adding coffee liqueur sounds like a really good idea, so I’m going to have to give it a try next time I make it. I’m happy to hear that you enjoyed it πŸ™‚
