My friend Larry would sometimes bring this to the home bridge game I play in, and it was always incredibly popular. (One of the regulars loves it so much that Larry would bring a second pan just for him to take home.)

At some point, I asked Larry for the recipe and he sent me a link to the original source. I could dig the link up if I wanted to, but I’m not going to; as far as I’m concerned, it’s Larry’s cake recipe.




  • 4 eggs

  • 175g (1 2/3 cups) granulated sugar

  • 1 cup vegetable oil (I use canola)

  • 15 oz can pumpkin



  • 270g (2 cups) all-purpose flour

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

  • other seasoning to taste. (I add some ground ginger; I don’t know if Larry varied it)



Heat the oven to 350 degrees

Take a 10x13 inch baking dish and grease it or line it with parchment paper.

Whisk together the dry ingredients

Using an electric mixer at medium speed, combine the sugar, oil, eggs, and pumpkin until light and fluffy. (You can do this by hand without much difficulty.)

Add the dry ingredients, and mix on low until thoroughly combined and the batter is smooth.

Spread the batter into the baking dish and bake for 30 minutes.

Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar if desired.



Larry passed away suddenly this past Wednesday, right before I was going to see him at Dexcon.
