Pumpkin Spice Cake with Honey Frosting

Ready in 35 minutes

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"

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.

This is one of my new favorite fall treats. I made it several times over the winter and everyone L-O-V-E-D it. I just used plain cream cheese frosting too...yum!

Very tasty and moist. The frosting is really delicious and not too sweet.
