Spicy Pumpkin Cake

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by jwconnect

I was trying to make pumpkin cookies and accidentally used 1 *can* instead of 1 cup of pumpkin (and I threw in an extra egg and extra powdered ginger), so I ended up with this moist delicious cake! If you like it extra spicy use the extra spoonful of ginger. Sorry-- I didn't pay attention to how long I baked it--I believe you bake until the center springs back with a light touch (maybe 25-30 minutes?)

Delicious! Not too pumpkin-tasting, a little bite to it! I didn't have pumpkin pie spice so I substituted approximately 2/3 tsp each of cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon. I brought it to work for my birthday treat and everyone loved it! Top it with your own or a store bought cream cheese frosting and it's a hit!
