Directions:
Beat sugar and eggs until light and well blended. Add oil, continuing to beat. Combine dry ingredients and blend into egg mixture. Add pumpkin and mix well. Pour into well-greased 9" tube pan. Bake at 350 for 55 minutes or until done. Let cool in pan at least 10 minutes. In my Kansas City oven, I bake at 350 for 55-60 minutes, turn off oven and leave it in oven 10 min.
Good plain or with a dab of whipped cream or Cool Whip. If you insist on icing this is good:
Combine 1 small package cream cheese and one stick softened margarine. Beat on high. Add 1/2 box or so powdered sugar and 1 t vanilla Beat until smooth. At my Orange Party I served with no icing and a dip of orange sherbet. Great.
