The long awaited recipe

Maple Valley off-grid Farms Pumpkin Cakes (from Great Aunt Bonnie)

4 farm fresh eggs, 2 cups real pumpkin purred (NOT pumpkin pie mix) 2 cups sugar, 1 cup oil, mix all those ingredients well!

2 cups flour, 2 tsp. Baking powder, 1/2 tsp. Salt, 2 tsp. Cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. Nutmeg, 1 tsp. Soda

Add dry ingredients to wet mixture, mix well. Pour into cupcake papers or 9x13 greased pan. Bake for 25-30 min depending on your wood cook stove ;) when the stove sounds at 350 degreesish!

Cool and frost with cream cheese frosting below:

3 oz cream cheese, 3/4 stick butter, 1 tsp. Milk, 1 tsp. Vanilla, 1 3/4 cup pow sugar, whip real well till fluffy, I do by hand :).

If you have questions email is best I cannot answer via blog, only read it ;).

After eating one - no wait, I had two - of these during our visit yesterday, I think I'll have to whip-up a batch in my own home. They were delicious! Thank you for your hospitality once again. We loved it and will be posting about our trip next week.
