Pumpkin Cake

Most of you probably have this, but I wanted to post it for any friends who might just need a scrumptious Autumn Treat. Carol always finds such awesome recipes. Thanks Carol!

Pumpkin Cake (Carol Reed)

2 cups sugar
2 cups pumpkin
4 eggs
1 cup oil
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
2 cups flour
½ tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda

Mix oil, eggs, pumpkin and sugar. Sift and add all remaining ingredients. Pour into greased jellyroll pan. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Cool and frost with cream cheese frosting:

¾ cup margarine
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp milk
4 ounces cream cheese
3 ½ cups powdered sugar

Combine ingredients and beat thoroughly. Add additional powdered sugar until the right consistency.

Confession: I double the frosting recipe and use most of it on the pumpkin cake and then of course have to lick the spoon and the bowl and the spatula and the beaters . . . .

Hannah would definitely do the same thing. All she wanted to eat was the frosting. She licked all the spoons and beaters and spatula.
