Julia's Pumpkin Cake

I made this cake for my family last night and they loved it! It has a moist texture and just enough sweetness without being too sweet. I used fresh pumpkin puree (from my Perfect Baked Pumpkin recipe), but you can use canned if you need to. This is one of my favorite fall sweets and it's so easy!


1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup apple sauce
4 eggs
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups pumpkin puree

Mix brown sugar, oil, applesauce and eggs. Sift in the flour, soda, salt, and spices. Mix well with an electric mixer until there are no lumps (3-4 minutes on medium). Add pumpkin puree. Mix again for one minute. Bake in greased and floured 9x13 cake pan at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Cake is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out completely clean. Cool completely and frost with Cream Cheese Frosting. (so yummy!)
