Pumpkin Angel Food Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting ~ Dessert Challenge

Sheryl over at Lady Behind the Curtain does a dessert challenge each month. We have 2 ingredients that we must use and create a new recipe, take photos and post.
This month we have pumpkin and cream cheese. I wanted to do something a little different, not totally out of the box, but not the normal pumpkin cheesecake. However, I have a fabulous recipe for that. But I've done it, so I needed something new.

My husbands favorite is angel food, so I thought I'd combine the pumpkin and do a new recipe/cake.

This is super easy.

Pumpkin Angel Food Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
1 box angel food cake mix
1 cup cold water
3/4 cup pumpkin puree (I make my own)
1 TBSP flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves, ground

Mix the dry ingredients well, then add the pumpkin and water. Mix at low speed for 30 seconds. Next mix at medium speed for 1 minute.
Pour into an UNgreased tube pan and bake at 350 degrees for 37-47 minutes depending on your oven. It should be golden brown and cracked on top.
Suspend the pan upside down to cool for 1 hour. Next run a knife around the edges to loosen and place the cake on a plate.
Once it is completely cool. Frost with a cream cheese frosting.

I used a can of cream cheese frosting, adding a little water, stirring well and adding food coloring for the light orange color. Then a few festive sprinkles added, plus the BOO in black decorative gel icing.

Super simple and delish!
