I got this recipe from the better homes and gardens website (http://www.bhg.com) and modified a little bit.
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground pumpkin spice mix
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 4 eggs at room temperature
- 1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
- 1 cup castor sugar
- ¾ cup canola oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ cup chopped walnuts
- Pre heat oven to 350F. Grease a 15x10x1 inch baking pan and set aside
- Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and pumpkin spice mix and set aside
- In a medium bowl beat egg, sugar and vanilla extract.
- Add oil, and pumpkin puree and beat with an electric mixer on medium speed
- Add the flour mixture and beat until combined.
- Stir in chopped walnuts
- Pour the batter into prepared pan and bake for about 30 minutes or until a wooden tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean
- Cool completely on a wire rack.
Note: I usually reduce the amount of sugar when I bake cookies, cake etc. So if you would like it to be quite sweet, add extra 1/3 cup of sugar.
For a variation, add about ¼ cup of chocolate chips or raisins into the cake mix.
