Tis The Season For Pumpkin Spice Cake

Easy Pumpkin Spice Cake w/ Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting


“Made from scratch, moist, fluffy pumpkin spice cake recipe with cinnamon cream cheese frosting. Easy to make recipe and perfect for the holidays!”

I’ve been wanting a homemade pumpkin spice cake with cream cheese frosting all week!  My grandmother makes the best from-scratch pumpkin spice cakes and sells them around the holidays. She even uses her own fresh pumpkin puree.  (Here’s the recipe for homemade pumpkin puree incase you want to give it a try )

However since Grandma Barb is 2 1/2 hours away in the snowy mountains, my only option was to get my hind parts into that kitchen and make one myself! Thankfully this pumpkin spice cake recipe is crazy easy and the results are worthy of any bakery in my opinion.



If you’ve been looking for a homemade pumpkin spice cake recipe that’s moist, fluffy, and packs in all that old fashioned pumpkin flavor then here ya go! Oh don’t mention it, you’re more than welcomed!

I have several cream cheese frosting recipes on my site so take your pick.  Some nuts would have made this pumpkin cake sing from the rooftops. I didn’t have any though. So it didn’t sing. But gosh is this thing GUUUUUUD!!
