Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

This is SUPER easy to make and VERY good!!  My oldest son really dislikes pumpkin but he loves this so you should give a try even if pumpkin ain’t your thing;)

This is a 2-part recipe, meaning it will have cake ingredients & preparation and icing ingredients & preparation.  And here we go………….


  • 2 c. Flour
  • 2 c. Sugar
  • 2 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 c. Vegetable Oil
  • 15 oz Pumpkin Can…You can use a big 29oz too, just add more sugar & flour.

Now, we don’t have lots of money to spend on high priced-name brand groceries, so you will see lots of  Sure Fine and Dollar Store goodies here at this blog. 



Preheat oven to 350′. 

Add dry ingredients first and mix together.  Add remaining ingredients and mix all of it together. Pour in and bake in a greased cake pan.   For 25 to 30 minutes or until done.  I poke mine with toothpicks to check:)





  • 1 8oz. Cream Cheese (I prefer the whipped in the tub.)
  • 1 stick Butter
  • 1 box of Confectioners Sugar
  • Vanilla

Cream first 3 ingredients together until smooth. Add vanilla to taste and mix:)   After cake has cooled, add icing and dust it with cinnamon on top to make it purty……



Easy as pie cake!


NOW EAT!  Be sure to lick the fork and plate too:)

    It WAS good Tina! I’m trying to find a way for people to print the recipes without images, just in case they don’t want them.

    This sounds so good. I have been loving pumpkin stuff more than normal this year.

    Over the holiday we made a white cake with pumpkin filling on top of it and it was so good. This just looks yummy too.

    Have a great week.

    Love the concept. It’s always good to eat pumpkin for desert.

    Oh I have to try this. I dislike pumpkin in a pie but put it in a muffin or a cake and I am yours.

    I made this cake for Christmas and my family loved it. We have all decided that we will have this throughout the year, not only during the holiday season.

    This seams like a great way to have the pumpkin taste for those who don’t like the texture of pumpkin pie (and a good use of a Kitchenaid mixer).
