Pumpkin Cake Squares

Holidays are so much based on traditions, but personally, my family was not really known for its Thanksgiving recipes. We typically did a hearty pasta dish, followed by a turkey soup, made with tiny meatballs, and finally the American turkey feast, which I was never crazy about. I was never a big fan of pumpkin pie either, so my mom found a pumpkin cake recipe from Woman’s Day magazine that she would make for me and I have made on Thanksgiving ever since because it’s delicious and easy!

1 cup sugar

2 large eggs

1 cup Canned Pure Pumpkin

½ cup canola or vegetable oil

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. salt

Frosting

¾ cup confectioners sugar

¼ cup cream cheese

2 tbsp. butter, softened

½ tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9” square pan

In a mixing bowl, beat sugar and eggs on medium speed for 2 minutes. Beat in the pumpkin and oil. Add flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; beat for 1 minute.

Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack.

Prepare frosting. Mix at a low speed for 2 minutes – confectioners sugar, cream cheese, butter, and vanilla. Frost cake when cooled.
