Pumpkin and cream cheese–two flavors that belong together. Classic. Delicious. This simple cake is sure to put you in the mood for all things fall.
The cake itself is sweetened mostly with Golden Barrel Organic Light Brown Sugar. And it’s made with Golden Barrel Coconut Oil to help keep it deliciously moist. I made the cake part up a couple days ahead, which not only enhanced the flavor, but made for an already prepped dessert. Then when it was time to dig in, I whipped up the icing and it was DONE. Nothing like easy desserts!
And let’s talk about that icing. Yum. Cream cheese and butter. So creamy and rich. It might be my favorite type of icing ever. I remember as a little girl licking off the icing of carrot cakes–I couldn’t get enough. There’s a thick layer of this goodness on top of the pumpkin cake layer. It really is divine!
I baked my cake in a 9×13 baking dish but I think it’d be fun as cupcakes too. Next time!
Simple, delicious, fall-like: it’s sure to be a favorite in your house as it is in mine!
