pumpkin cake

Happy Fall ya'll!! Isn't this fall weather just fabulous??

Matt's favorite recipe in the fall is pumpkin cake.  
I make it all year round, but it just tastes better in the fall!!  We like to warm it up with a little butter on top for breakfast in the morning!!

Here's what you'll need....
4 eggs, beaten

3 cups sugar

1 cup corn oil

1-lb. can pumpkin

3 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp. baking powder

2 tsp. soda

2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. ground cloves

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. nutmeg

1 tsp. allspice

2/3 cup water

You'll spend a pretty penny on these three spices, but trust me it's totally worth it!!
Beat the eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin together.  Mix all dry ingredients together and add to the first mixture.  Also stir in the 2/3 cup of water.  Beat well.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.  
I bake this in a bundt pan sprayed with Pam and it turns out perfect!!
