Pumpkin Sheet Cake

I love all things pumpkin.  During the fall it is a must have but I like it so much we have pumpkin flavored things all year long.
We love this cake for dessert (and sometimes breakfast)

Pumpkin Sheet Cake

Yield 2 sheet cakes (can easily cut recipe in half)

3 cups white sugar
1 cup margarine
2 teas vanilla
2 cans of pumpkin (the regular size cans)
4 eggs
3 cups flour (I use whole wheat and it taste great and is more nutritious)
4 1/2 teas baking powder
1 Tab baking soda
1/4 teas salt
4 teas cinnamon

I dump all the ingredients into my mixer and turn it on until it looks good and mixed.  (I am not a very precise person in the kitchen)

Bake at 350 degrees in a greased cooking sheet for 20-25 min.

It is tasty plain or with a light glaze on the top.

  1. Sounds yummy.

    Can you tell me how many oz in a reg sized can of pumpkin? I have frozen pumpkin puree and will use that instead.

    Also, I don't have a high-rimmed baking sheet so will prob halve the recipe and use an 9x13 pan instead. Think that would work? I bet some pumkin pie spice would be a nice addition as well.

  2. Oh boy! I am a big time pumpkin eater! I will be saving this recipe and making it very soon!! Thank you for sharing it! I followed from Beyond the Picket Fence. I am new to blogging so if you get a minute, stop by for a visit and let me know what you think :)

  3. Um yum! You're making me hungry!! That looks delicious!

  4. How perfect for fall! I'd like to invite you to link up at my Friday Favorites party!

  5. @ Kim - I use a 15 oz can of pumpkin. I think it would work just fine as a regular cake but you may need to bake it longer.

  6. How do you make the glaze? Thanks.

  7. I eyeball the glaze and don't really use a recipe. I mix a little melted butter, even less milk and enough powdered sugar until I get the consistency I want. I put a few drops of vanilla in to taste.
