Pumpkin Spice Cake

One of my favorite spice cake made from scratch frosted with cream cheese frosting and studded with chopped walnuts. Adding raisins to this cake makes it even yummy. It is an easy ‘one bowl’ recipe and uses oil instead of butter which keeps this cake moist for long without over drying.20161118_195129Who doesn’t love some cinnamon goodness during Fall(or anytime of the year if you are like me😀)
