Pumpkin Sheet Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting is a simple pumpkin sheet cake topped with a fall spiced frosting. Everyone will love this cake.
Baking is one of my favorite things to do. More often than not my family is unaffected by my baked goods. They are so used to having cookies, cakes, and pies around that they are pretty picky about what they really love. They are hard to impress. I have teenagers, who are supposed to eat most anything, but usually, I get a “yeah, it’s okay” or a grunt. Frequently I end up giving away what I’ve made. I’m pretty popular with the people in our building.
More often than not, I bake because I love to do it. It relaxes me. Great ideas come to me in the shower and when I am baking. If I am stressed out, I turn on some music, light some candles, and get out the butter and sugar. One evening after a particularly trying day, I looked through my cabinets for something to make. I found a lonely can of pumpkin puree. I am the only person in my house that loves pumpkin, but I wanted to make something fall-is and there is nothing better than pumpkin for that.
This cake is so easy to make. Mix wet into dry and pour it into your pan. So easy. I wanted a really spiced frosting to go on top, so I added a lot of cinnamon to the cream cheese frosting. This cake is really delicious.
After taking some pictures of this cake I left it on the counter. I was going to give to some friends, but it was almost gone when I went to cut it up and package it. William loved this cake. Truthfully, I was shocked he tried it, he swears he doesn’t like pumpkin, but he ate 3/4 of this cake himself. I’d say that is a win.
