Pumpkin Bites

*from ksl.com last fall

This recipe makes A LOT of mini pumpkin cakes.

I always half this and get about 48.

2 C sugar
1 C oil
4 eggs
1 (15 oz) can pumpkin
2 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1 t cinnamon
1 t nutmeg
1/2 t cloves
1/2 t salt
2 C flour

*I just use pumpkin pie spice in place of the cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously spray a mini muffin pan. If you have them, use mini muffin liners and spray those well. They seem to come out best with liners. Beat sugar and oil together. Add eggs and beat, then add pumpkin and beat. Add dry ingredients and combine well. Place 2 tsp. of batter in each mini muffin. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until cake tester comes out clean. Cool and frost!

Cream Cheese Frosting:
4 oz cream cheese (room temperature)
1/4 C butter, room temerature
1 lb powdered sugar
Evaporated milk (normal milk will work in a pinch)
1 t vanilla

In bowl or electric mixer, combine cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy. Add powdered sugar to butter mix, adding evaporated milk to desired spreading consistency. Add in vanilla, beat frosting at medium-high speed until light and fluffy.
