Treat Tuesday – Pumpkin Cake Squares

This recipe comes from my aunt. For the month of November I will be posting recipes that work with a Thanksgiving feast! I will start the month off with something sweet.

What you’ll need for the cake:

* 1 Cup Sugar

* 2 Eggs

* 1 Cup Canned Pumpkin

* 1/2 Cup Oil

* 1 Cup Flour

* 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon

* 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

* 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder

* 1/2 Teaspoon Salt

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9X9 pan. I don’t have one so I used what I already have. Beat sugar and eggs for 2 minutes. Add the pumpkin and oil. Beat together with the sugar and eggs. Add the remaining dry ingredients and beat for 1 minute. It should have a silky consistency. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes. Let the cake cool.

For the Frosting:

* 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

* 4 Tablespoons Butter

* 1 Teaspoon Vanilla

If you think that will be too much frosting cut the recipe in half. You will mix all ingredients until the frosting is fluffy. When you first start mixing the frosting it will be crumbly, keep going it will turn out right! Frost the cake once it has cooled. Enjoy!
