My boyfriend’s favorite cake is Pumpkin Spice. Favorite flavor, actually. But last year I was too slow on getting the pumpkin puree, so he had so settle for vanilla spice. But this past fall, I stocked up! Here’s the recipe, I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients

Cake

  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1⅓ cups white sugar
  • ¾ cup of butter, softened
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin spice
  • 1½ cup buttermilk
  • 15 oz. 100% pure pumpkin (usually one can)

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 2 (8 oz) packs cream cheese, soft
  • ½ cup butter, soft
  • 3 teaspoon heavy cream
  • 5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Heat oven to 325 F. Grease and flour 2 round 9 inch cake pans and then set aside. In a large mixing flour combine flour, baking soda, and salt; then set aside. In a different mixing bowl combing the butter and sugars. Then add the vanilla and pumpkin spice, as well as the eggs one at a time. Add the dry ingredients to the wet gradually, alternating with the buttermilk. Then mix in the canned pumpkin. Pour evenly into the pans, and bake for 25 minutes. While you’re waiting for that, make the frosting. Mixing the cream cheese, butter and cream. And then the sugar just a little bit at a time and then add the vanilla. When the cake is done make sure it is all the way cooled down before you frost and assemble. Enjoy!
