Easy Pumpkin Spice Cake with Maple Spice Cream Cheese Frosting November 23, 2011



1 (15 oz) can of pumpkin

3 eggs

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 package yellow cake mix

2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

Mix all ingredients with a mixer on low speed for 1 minute, then on high for two minutes.

Pour into a 9 x 13 baking pan.

Bake in a 350 degree for about 35 minutes.

Cool on wire rack.


1 package cream cheese, room temperature

1 tablespoon maple syrup

2 tablespoons dark brown sugar

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Mix all with a mixer until well blended.  Spread on cake.


This cake is super easy to make and it is very moist and yummy.  It can be made into cupcakes or round cakes if desired, just adjust baking times according to the instructions on the box.  I like my cake spicy, so I added a little extra allspice, ground ginger, and ground clove to my cake.  I don’t like really sweet frosting, but if you do, just add more maple syrup or brown sugar.
