Old Fashion Spice Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting


Treat number 2 for 12 Days of Christmas Treats is this yummy spice cake! The cream cheese icing is a wonderful compliment to the spice cake! I loved this recipe because it wasn't a huge cake it was perfect if you want make it for a friend or for a dinner party. This recipe is from the Imperial Sugar website. 

Cake:
1 2/3 cups cake flour
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup salted butter (room temperature)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs (room temperature)
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla extract

Frosting:
6 tbsp salted butter (room temperature)
6oz cream cheese (room temperature)
3 cups powdered sugar 
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt

Heat oven to 350. Grease an 8x8 pan. Whisk together flour, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, salt, baking powder and baking soda.  Set to the side. Cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the oil.  Beat in eggs one at a time while scrapping down the sides between each egg.  Combine the buttermilk and vanilla extract. Alternate between adding buttermilk and the flour mixture until combined. Pour the batter until the greased pan. Bake fro 40 minutes or until the cake is cooked through. Beat together the butter and cream cheese until it is smooth. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla extract and pinch of salt then beat until fluffy. Spread the frosting over the cake once it has cooled..
