Pumpkin Spice Cake w/Cream Cheese Icing

This is perfect for the fall weather and tastes so good. I think it tastes a little better the next day, as many cakes do. My son thought it was a carrot cake at first. This was supposed to be a brownie recipe, but the cake rises too much for me to call it a brownie. Still absolutely wonderful. I add more cinnamon than directed to the icing, but see what suits your taste. I’m sure you could sub a few teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice for the cinnamon and other spices and still have it taste fantastic.
-Half of the wonderfulness of this recipe is getting the frosting recipe. It has made my cinnamon rolls the best ever, and I have to hide it in the fridge, because for some reason my husband has radar for it and will take the bowl out to the garage with a spoon.
-This is a great recipe. If you substitute the oil in this recipe for equal parts applesauce, you will get the same moist results with a healthy guilt-free cake! The frosting could be made lighter, but I’ve used this recipe before and I love it the way it is… After all, you have to have SOME guilty pleasures in life, right?
