If you haven’t had your fill of pumpkin yet from the just departed Thanksgiving holiday, here’s another option,  One of our readers (Thanks, Rebecca!) added her own twist to The Amish Cook’s pumpkin sheet cake recipe.  Doesn’t it look delicious? I’ve modified the original recipe below to make it into a “holiday cake.”  Yum!  Also, put Lovina’s homemade frosting recipe below which you can add to the cake. Send me a piece!:)

Homemade Holiday Pumpkin Cake

2 cups sugar

4 eggs

1 cup vegetable oil

2 cups flour

2 cups pumpkin

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon soda

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, eggs, vegetable oil, flour, nuts, pumpkin, salt, baking soda and cinnamon until the mixture is evenly and thoroughly combined. Spoon into a bundt pan and bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Add frosting:


Two heaping tablespoons of shortening and blend that together with three-fourths cup of powdered sugar. After it is smooth, add a tablespoon of vanilla. Then gradually add milk and additional powdered sugar, making it smooth enough for frosting — as thick or thin as you want it.
