15 oz. can solid pack pumpkin
3 eggs
1/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. vegetable oil
18.25 oz. package yellow cake mix
1 T. pumpkin pie spice
16 oz. can vanilla frosting
3 oz. cream cheese, softened

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin, eggs, sugar and oil; mix well. Add the cake mix and pumpkin pie spice, then beat for 2 minutes. Pour into a greased 15x10 baking pan. Bake 25-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

In a mixing bowl, combine the frosting and cream cheese. Spread over cake. Store in the refrigerator.

Notes: This is a recipe that Silas has made for our family. It's really good and super moist, but doesn't have a strong pumpkin flavor. In fact, it tastes pretty much like spice cake, so you could just buy a boxed spice cake mix if you were short on time. We don't have a 15x10 pan, so Silas uses a roasting pan and it works perfectly.
