Let's Eat CAKE! - Pumpkin Spice Layer Cake

Just in time for Thanksgiving, this delicious Pumpkin Spice Layer Cake with Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting is quick and easy to make.

The aroma of this Pumpkin Spice Layer Cake while baking filled the house with that lovely scent of the season – cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. The pumpkin gives it a nice moist consistency and blends nicely with pineapple, coconut, and currants. The batter seemed a bit stiff, similar to a muffin mixture, but the cooled cake layers were so tender, they started to break when handled (wrapping it for the refrigerator overnight).Let's Eat CAKE! - Pumpkin Spice Layer Cake

The Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting is lovely with a dollop of pumpkin giving it a light off-white color and delicate – almost imperceptible – pumpkin flavor. I especially like this frosting recipe for being less sweet than most cream cheese frostings. It has only 1 1/4 cups of powdered sugar for the 1 cup each of butter and cream cheese and doesn’t overpower or dominate the rich cake. Let's Eat CAKE! - Pumpkin Spice Layer Cake

Too rich for large slices, the moist density allows for smaller slivers of slices to be served.

    This is beautiful! Very “autumn-y”. I can picture sitting in my comfy chair next to the fire with a slice of this cake and a cup of coffee. It would be perfect!
