This simple cake is perfect for snacking. I dusted mine with raw sugar which gives the cake a pretty crust.


  • 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp raw sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line two 7x3 inch loaf pans with parchment paper or foil, or grease your baking pans.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, add the oil, cup of sugar, pumpkin puree, and salt. Whisk vigorously until combined. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each so it is completely incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Sift the flour-spice mixture over this and stir with the spatula or a wooden spoon until just combined.
  4. Divide the mixture evenly between the pans and smooth the surface. Sprinkle each evenly with 1 tablespoon sugar. Bake approximately 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool.
