Makes 12

Prep Time 35 minutes

Bake time 10 minutes

I double the frosting

Ingredients

1 ½ Sticks (6 ounces) unsalted butter, I stick melted, ½ stick softened

1 cup packed light brown sugar

2 large eggs, at room temperature, lightly beaten

1 cup canned pure pumpkin puree

1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice

1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking powder

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter and brown sugar until smooth. Whisk in the eggs, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, 1 teaspoon vanilla, the baking powder, the baking soda and ¾ teaspoon salt. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the flour.

4. Meanwhile, using an electric mixer, cream the softened butter with the cream cheese. Add the confectioner’s sugar and the remaining 2 pinches salt and ½ teaspoon vanilla; mix on low speed until blended, then beat on medium-high speed until fluffy, about 2 minutes.

5. Spread the flat side of 12 cakes with the cream cheese frosting. Top each with another cake.
