Pumpkin Snack Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone,

Today for #SundaySupper we are bringing you Fall recipes. When I think of fall, two things come to mind, apples and pumpkin. I am pretty excited for today’s recipe because I am sharing with you my first pumpkin recipe of the season, and believe me there will be more. So let’s get the Fall party started with Pumpkin Snack Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting.
Pumpkin Snack Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting #SundaySupper
This cake exceeded my expectations. It is so light and moist and has the perfect pumpkin flavor. I gave a slice to Jenny before she headed out to work and her exacts words were OMG! Can I bring some to my boyfriend Jerry? So yes, this recipe is a keeper.

The cake is not only tasty, but it is pretty easy to make. I tried to lighten it up by only using a 1/3 cup of sugar in it, but I felt the need to add a pinch of maple syrup at the very end. The maple syrup really brought the flavors all together. For spices, I used my favorites, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. You could also use pumpkin pie seasoning if you desire.

I was going to leave the cake plain, but at the last-minute I decided to make a lightened up cream cheese frosting. That just took the cake to another level. I went light on the frosting because I feel a little bit goes a long way. It has 2 oz of cream cheese, 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, cinnamon and a pinch of milk. The frosting just makes enough to cover the cake and adds that extra bit of more sweetness. If you didn’t want to frost the cake, it would only be 132 calories a slice. This recipe makes 12 nice size slices.

Pumpkin Snack Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting #SundaySupper
I am just so excited for Fall! After having a slice of this cake, it really put me in the pumpkin mood. Oh and I almost forgot. Just for decorations I used Brach’s pumpkin candies. Another reason why I love Fall! Darn those pumpkins and candy corns. He He
