Tis the season of pumpkins! From my latte to my decor, I LOVE pumpkins in my life.

I bring you the Pumpkin Spice Slice with cream cheese frosting. Sweet, spiced, comforting. Perfect as the evenings draw in and the leaves start to fall.

For this recipe, you need pumpkin pie spice. This is something I will be using in a few recipes. I know this is readily available in other countries but I had such a hard time finding it in England that I decided to make my own.

Pumpkin Spice

  • 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground mixed spice
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cloves

Mix well. Keep in a jar and use as and when needed.



Cream together butter and light brown sugar.


Then add in three eggs.


Next, fold in flour, baking powder and pumpkin pie spice.


Finally, add in pumpkin puree.


Mix well until light and fluffy.


Pour mixture into a lined 10 x 8 tin and bake at 140C for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.


Once cooled, make cream cheese frosting by mixing all ingredients until soft and spreadable.


Spread soft cream cheese frosting over the top of your bake, then cut into slices.

Give it a try and let me know how you get on either on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram.
