How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Butter and flour two 9-inch-diameter cake pans with 2" sides (even better, use Baker's Joy).
  • Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices except for nutmeg into large bowl. Grate nutmeg and add to other dry ingredients. Stir to mix well.
  • Beat sugar and oil in large bowl until well blended with electric mixtuer, about 2 minutes.
  • Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Add pumpkin, maple, and vanilla; beat until blended. Gradually add dry ingredients; beat just until incorporated.
  • Divide batter between prepared pans.
  • Bake cake until a skewer inserted into center comes out with just a few crumbs, about 30 minutes.
  • Cool in pans ~20min. Finish cooling on wire rack.
  • Frost with your choice of icing, a cream cheese frosting with maple flavoring is a nice touch. Decoration with candied nuts like pecans or walnuts adds a tasty texture.
