How to make it

  • Stir flour with baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices. Reserve. Preheat oven to 350F (180C). Grease two 8-in (23-cm) or 9-in round cake pans.
  • Combine oil and sugar using electric mixer; mix on medium speed for 1 minute. Still mixing, add eggs, one at a time. Increase speed to high and beat for 2 minutes. Add dry ingredients in 3 additions, scraping down bowl with a rubber spatula after each addition. Stir in pumpkin.
  • Scrape equal amounts of batter into each cake pan. Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 45 minutes or until a tester inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool in pan for 5 minutes; remove and cool to room temperature on rack.
  • Beat cream cheese with electric mixer until smooth. Add molasses and half the icing sugar. Mix on low speed until combined. Add remaining sugar and mix until combined; increase speed to high and beat for 1 minute or until very smooth.
  • Spread just enough frosting over bottom layer to cover well. Top with second layer and spread top and sides with remaining frosting, swirling frosting to decorate.
  • Top with desired garnish; pumpkin seeds, sprinkles, chopped up skor bar....etc.
