Author/Submitted by: Vera Stevens
Servings: 0
Categories: Cakes / Chocolate / Desserts / Pumpkin


3  cups  Flour
1  tablespoon  Baking powder
2  teaspoons  Soda
2  teaspoons  Pumpkin pie spice
1  teaspoon  Salt
4    Eggs
1  cup  Sugar
1  cup  Light brown sugar, packed
16  ounces  Pumpkin, pureed, canned or fresh
1  cup  Oil

1  tablespoon  Butter
1  ounce  Unsweetened chocolate
1  dash  salt
1/2  teaspoon  Vanilla
1 1/4  cups  Confectioner's sugar
2  tablespoons  Milk, or as needed

1. MAKE THE CAKE: Sift the flour, baking powder, soda, pumpkin pie spice and salt together; set aside. Beat the eggs until fluffy; add the sugars. Beat until very thick. Stir in the pumpkin and oil, until smooth. Blend flour mixture thoroughly into the creamed mixture. Pour into a greased and floured 10" tube pan. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for about one hour or until cake tester inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan. Cool completely on a wire rack. Drizzle the glaze over the cake.

2. MAKE THE CHOCOLATE GLAZE: Melt the butter and chocolate, in a small saucepan over low heat; stir in salt and vanilla. Add the confectioners' sugar with enough milk to make the glaze thin enough to drizzle over the cake. Note: This cake will keep well for several months in the freezer.
