Recipe Ingredients for Pumpkin Spice Cake

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups cake flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/2 cup buttermilk

Recipe Directions for Pumpkin Spice Cake

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) and place rack in center of oven. Butter and flour (or spray with Baker's Joy) two - 8 inch (20 cm) cake pans. Set aside.

  2. In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes). Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add the pumpkin puree and vanilla and beat until incorporated.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and spices. Add the flour mixture and buttermilk alternately to the pumpkin batter, in three additions, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Divide the batter in half and then pour the batter into the prepared pans. Bake for approximately 25 - 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

  4. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes and then invert and remove the cakes from their pans. Cool completely before frosting.
