Pumpkin Cake with Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese Frosting
Did y’all survive the Thanksgiving Feast? Are you still nomming away on leftovers?
I’m actually brining my *leftover* Turkey right now and we’ll be devouring my Poblano Turkey this week
This dessert was one of the highlights of our Thanksgiving table (well, this and the sock cake – more about that later)
I also took this to the school for the Staff Thanksgiving Luncheon and I think it was one of the first to disappear.
This cake is moist – and rich and delicious and when topped with the Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese Frosting – Oh. My. Holy. Tonguegasm, y’all!!!!
Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
Delicious and creamy vanilla cream cheese frosting, perfect for topping any spice cake or pumpkin cake. Cinnamon is a yummy addition for an extra hint of fall, if desired.
- 4 eggs
- 1 C vegetable oil
- 2 1/4 C white granulated sugar
- 1 (16 oz) can of Pumpkin
- 2 C all purpose flour (do not pack, spoon it into the measuring cups)
- 2 rounded tsp. cinnamon (roasted if you have it)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1 8 oz block cream cheese - softened
- 3/4 stick butter (5 Tbsp) - softened - not room temp
- 2 Tbsp milk
- 1 1/2 Tbsp pure vanilla extract or Vanilla Bean Paste if you like the specks of vanilla in the frosting
- 2 1/2 C powdered Sugar (or more for consistency)
- Preheat oven to 350 F
- In a medium bowl: add flour, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and baking soda
- In mixing bowl cream together: Eggs, Oil, and Sugar
- Add in the Pumpkin, mix well
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet and blend well
- Pour into a well greased 11X17" rimmed baking pan (aka sheet pan)
- Bake for 22 to 28 minutes, or until a dry spaghetti noodle comes out slightly crumby
- Let cool and then frost with Cream Cheese Frosting (I freeze it for about 30 minutes after frosted)
Frosting - This is going to be a consistency thing so add and take away until it reaches your desired consistency.
- Beat Cream Cheese and Butter together until creamy.
- Add milk, vanilla and powdered sugar.
- Beat until smooth.
- Add more powdered sugar or vanilla to taste and consistency
