Pumpkin Cake

Here’s another post to start my new year and keep my new year resolution going! Yay! With busy work schedule, I don’t cook as often anymore and the laziness in me just refrained me from updating the blog! Sorry!!
So, I made this pumpkin cake back in November for Thanksgiving. This year we had a sit down dinner with about 12 guests. I should probably reserved more details on what I did for Thanksgiving dinner for another post. Ana, my friend from work and I were discussing the Thanksgiving menu and after some googling, we both made this for Thanskgiving. I think both our guests enjoyed this super moist pumpkin cake.
The original recipe extracted from My recipe has been modified slightly using the spices I have.
Pumpkin Cake
  • 2 Cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1 1/4 Cups Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Cups Pumpkin Puree
  • 4 Large Eggs
  • 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 3 Tsps Baking Powder
  • 2 Tsps Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Tsp salt
  • 2 Tsps Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1/2 Tsp All Spice
  • Powdered Sugar (Optional – for dusting)
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour a 12x18 inch pan. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine sugar and oil. Blend in vanilla and pumpkin, then beat in eggs one at a time. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Spread batter into prepared 12x18 inch pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool. Dust with some powdered sugar just before serving if desired.
June’s Comments: I like using a bundt cake pan when I’m baking a cake that will not have any frosting on it. I feel that it makes the cake look a little special, and that extra dusting of powdered sugar gives the simple cake a little “oooh-aaahhh” effect.
