Pumpkin Sheet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

I was introduced to this dessert when I was a kid in Elementary School. They were often served with school lunch during the Fall months. I always loved them, but never had a recipe to make them at home. I finally have a delicious and moist recipe that you will love! My family now gets to enjoy this delicious cake.

1 tsp. Vanilla

1 tsp. Baking Soda

1 tsp. Baking Powder

Cream Cheese Frosting
