3 1/2 cups self-rising flour 2 1/2 cups brown sugar 4 eggs 1 cup vegetable oil 1 (16 ounce) can pumpkin puree 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon all spice 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
In a large bowl combine flour, sugar and spices. In a separate bowl combine beaten eggs, vegetable oil and pumpkin puree. Mix well and add pumpkin mixture to flour mixture. Mix well. Fold in chopped walnuts (if using). Place in a lightly greased pumpkin shaped baking tin. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 for approximately 25 minutes or until golden and baked through. Decorate with orange frosting, candy corn and licorice to form a pumpkin face.
Tip: If you don’t have a pumpkin shaped baking tin, you can use a regular tin and decorate as a pumpkin for a similar effect.
