Pumpkin Cake

  • In a large bowl, add granulated sugar, brown sugar, and butter. Beat with a mixer at medium speed for 3-5 minutes, or until well blended.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Stir in pumpkin pie filling and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Alternate adding the flour mixture and buttermilk to the sugar mixture, beginning and ending with the flour mixture.
  • Transfer the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean, a few crumbs are okay.
  • Let the cake cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes on a wire rack. Remove from pan, and allow it to continue cooling on a wire rack.
  • Drizzle the glaze on the warm or cooled cake.
