  4. Sift together the flour, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Add about 1/3 of the sifted dry ingredients to the creamed mixture; mix well. Stir in milk. Add remaining sifted ingredients alternately with the pumpkin purée.
  6. Pour batter into pan; bake for 50 to 60 minutes.
  7. Cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a cake rack.
  8. When cool, frost with Butter Frosting (instructions below) or frost with Cream Cheese Frosting. Top with more nuts or pumpkin seeds (pepitas). See the instructions for spiced toasted pumpkin seeds, below.

Butter Frosting

In a mixing bowl, cream 1/4 cup of butter; blend in half of the confectioners' sugar. Mix in 2 tablespoons of milk and 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla, and then add remaining confectioners' sugar and beat until smooth. Add more milk, as needed for the desired consistency.

Spiced Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

In a bowl, combine 1 cup of pumpkin seeds with 1 tablespoon of melted butter, 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg, and a dash of allspice. Spread out on a baking sheet and roast in a preheated 325 F oven for about 5 to 10 minutes, or until browned.

Homemade Pumpkin Puree

To make pumpkin purée, cut pumpkin in half, crosswise. Remove seeds and membranes. Place the pumpkin halves on a greased baking sheet, cut-side down, and bake at 325° for 1 hour, or until tender.

Cool for 10 minutes. Remove pulp and place in blender or processor. Purée or process until smooth. Place in a cheesecloth-lined mesh strainer or sieve and let drain into a bowl for about an hour. When dripping has stopped, put purée into a container, cover, and refrigerate if not using right away.
