Hi,

My family is not big on spice cake. I am looking for a
cake recipe that would go with pumpkin cream
cheese frosting. I thought some kind of yellow
cake. Anyone have a nice cake recipe to go with this?
Thanks.

Do they not like the taste of spice cake or just the cake itself? I made a pumpkin spice cake for thanksgiving and we couldn't taste the spice cake in it. I just added a cup of canned pumpkin to a box of spice cake mix.

have you thought about doing the whole white cake with the coffee creamer added?? They have all kinds of flavors....pumpkin spice for one........but even the vanilla/caramel I think is such a nice soft but delicious flavor.......I think it would match absolutely perfectly with pumpkin cream cheese icing...yum-o!!!

I bought the pumpkin spice creamer and plan to use it in the frosting. I'd like to use it in the cake as well. The cake JanH gave here
http://www.cakecentral.com/cak.....-Cake.html

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, cut into pieces
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs, separated
2 2/3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup milk, heavy or whipping cream, or sour cream
2 tsp. vanilla extract or cognac vanilla

sounds very nice, but where to add creamer. Recipe does not call for any water where could I use creamer instead?????

Thanks.

I might substitute some of the milk/sour cream or whatever you decide to use for some of the creamer

I was asking others out there because I am new to cake making and don't feel I know how to safely doctor recipes.

the recipe calls for either milk or sour cream. I would opt for the sour cream and probably substitute half of it for the creamer. Hope that is clearer.
