Pumpkin Apple Cake with Cream Cheese Icing
1 cup butter
3 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
3 med. Apples, peeled and diced
2 cups pumpkin
4 c all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 /2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
l/2 tsp. cloves
l/2 tsp. ginger

In large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Stir in vanilla, apples and pumpkin. Blend in dry ingredients. Cut wax paper circle for bottoms of three 8” or 9” cake pans. Spray pan, place wax paper in bottom, spray pan and sides again. Bake 350 for 28 minutes checking until done. Let cake cool 5 minutes in pan and then turn out to rack to cool.

Orange Syrup: l/2 cup butter, l/2 cup granulated sugar, 2 tab water, 2 tsp grated orange peel – bring to boil. Remove from heat stir in 2 tab orange juice. Spoon over warm cake. Refrigerate cakes overnight.

Cream Cheese Icing:
l/2 cup butter – softened, 8 oz pkg. cream cheese or Neufchatel cheese, 1 lb of powder sugar, 2 tsp vanilla. Beat until smooth. Frost cake.

This cake gets better over the next couple of days as the flavors marry together. It is a very moist wonderful cake!
