Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon instant espresso powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • FILLING:
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • Additional ground cinnamon, optional

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Whisk together the first eight ingredients. In another bowl, beat pumpkin, sugar and oil until smooth; add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually add flour mixture; beat until well blended.
Pour batter into a greased and parchment lined 9-in. square baking pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cool 10 minutes on a wire rack. Remove from pan; cool completely on wire rack.
For filling, beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla until blended. Gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar until smooth.
To assemble, cut cake into 1/2-in. cubes. In juice glasses or small parfait glasses, alternate layers of cake and filling, ending with filling. If desired, sprinkle with additional cinnamon. Yield: 8 servings.

Test Kitchen tip
  • If you like, you can sprinkle the cake cubes with a little brandy, schnapps or rum.
