Pumpkin Cake Squares

I {heart} holiday baking.. and this is one of my favorites. I love anything pumpkin mixed with cream cheese frosting. David makes these every year... yum.


1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt


3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup cream cheese
2 Tbsp butter or margarine, softened
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

pre-heat oven to 350F. Grease 9 inch square pan. Prepare cake: in bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat sugar and eggs 2 minutes, beat in pumpkin and oil, at low speed add flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Beat 1 minute.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. cool pumpkin cake in pan on wire rack.

Prepare frosting with remaining ingredients, add to cooled cake.

(sometimes we DOUBLE the frosting recipe to make it extra yummy)
