4 eggs
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
15-ounce can pumpkin
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

The Best Cream Cheese Frosting
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 package cream cheese, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
In a mixer with the paddle attachment combine the butter and cream cheese until blended.
Slowly add in the powdered sugar and then follow with the maple syrup and pumpkin pie spice.
Blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13×9 baking pan.
In the medium bowl combine the eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin on medium speed until light and fluffy.
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, salt and baking soda.
Mix the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture until just combined. Try not to overmix. Spread the batter into the prepared 13 by 9-inch baking pan. Sprinkle the top with the pecans.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely before frosting.
