Recipe Notes

If you can't find pumpkin pie spice, use cinnamon powder and/or ground nutmeg.

You could make pumpkin puree at home by cutting the pumpkin, scooping out the seeds, roasting for about one hour in an oven the scooping out the pulp and blending to a pulp. If this is too much for you, simply purchase pure pumpkin puree in a can from the grocery store.

If you want the cake very sweet, double the sugar measurements in both the batter and the frosting.
