Amish Pumpkin Cake

Oh yes. Pumpkin cake! With cream cheese frosting. It doesn't get much better than this! This is a very light pumpkin cake. What I mean by that is that the taste is not overwhelmingly pumpkin, just the perfect hint for the crisp fall weather! Whip up the frosting (I always add a little cinnamon to it) and enjoy! The recipe calls for a 9x9 pan, but since I don't have one of those, I used a funny little bunt-like pan (funny in the sense that it didn't have the hole in it) and needed to adjust the time accordingly (45 mins). It turned out great, though!
