16 oz can pumpkin
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

This is the pan I used from Bed, Bath & Beyond. I LOVE this bakeware and it is made in the USA.
Cool the cake completely and then frost it with the cream cheese frosting. Here’s what you’ll need for the frosting:
Cream Cheese Frosting:
5 Tbs. butter, softened
3 oz cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
3-4 tsp. milk
chopped nuts for the top, if desired
Beat the butter and cream cheese together. Add the vanilla and blend till smooth. Gradually add the powdered sugar and mix well. Add the milk a bit at a time until you get it to a spreadable consistency.

Another tailgate dessert at a September game was PUMPKIN MUFFINS. These are so moist and will stay that way for about a week, even if frozen and defrosted.
