Something New Here!

So, I am starting to do something called: "My Top 10 Favorite Holiday Desserts". My next 9 posts after this one will conclude my top 10 Holiday Desserts. Lets start off with #10.
We have been making this sheet cake for years. Fall thru winter, this recipe would have to be the #1 most "made" recipe here. I know there are lots of Pumpkin Sheet Cake recipes out there but this one takes the cake! So easy too - which is a plus.

"Pumpkin Sheet Cake"

1 15 oz. can pumpkin
2 cup sugar
1 cup oil
4 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cup flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. salt
In a large bowl, beat pumpkin, sugar, and oil. Add beaten eggs; mix well. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Mix. Add to pumpkin mixture and beat until well blended. Pour cake batter into a greased 10x15 in. cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Cool. Frost when cooled.

8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
10 tbsp. butter, softened
2 tsp. vanilla
3 1/2 cup powdered sugar
6-8 tsp. milk
Beat cream cheese, butter, and vanilla until smooth. Gradually add sugar, mix well. Add 3-4 tsp. milk until frosting reaches spreading consistency.
My little sister obviously thinks I am so amusing. Don't you Anna??

Hi Priscilla,
Thank-you for visiting my Recipe Spotlight blog. If you would like to submit one of your recipes you can click here to find my email address and some instructions:
How to submit a recipe to recipe spotlight.

I don't know what will happen with the Recipe Spotlight blog, but I'll give it a go :)

I think it's great that you are homeschooled--do you enjoy it? I always wonder what children think of homeschooling--mine like it some days and don't others. I know they also would like to get away from me sometimes, too!

Keep up the good work with your blog--it really is great!

I have been trying to get my 13 yo daughter into blogging--her passion is baking and I think she would have fun with it--how and when did you get started?
