Pumpkin Spice Cake with Honey Frosting
This is from Martha Stewart's magazine and is extremely good and very easy. The frosting is the best part - not too rich."I used equal amount apple sauce instead of butter and 1/2 c honey and 1/2 c brown sugar in place of all the white sugar. Baked in a 7.5 x 11 glass pan at 325 for about 40 min. SOOOOOO GOOD AND MOIST " - Fitnblnde5

Pumpkin Spice Cake with Honey Frosting Preparation
1. Preheat oven to 350. Butter a 9-inch square baking pan.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin-pie spice. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, sugar, butter, and pumpkin pure until combined. Add dry ingredients to pumpkin mixture, and mix gently until smooth.
3. Turn batter into prepared pan, and smooth top. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out with just a few moist crumbs attached, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool cake 10 minutes in pan, then turn out of pan, and cool completely, right side up, on a rack.
4. Spread top of cooled cake with Honey Frosting. Cut cake into squares to serve.
