Pumpkin Gingerbread Cake

Pumpkin GingerbreadI adore big slices of gingerbread cake. I also enjoy pumpkin gingerbread. So I decided to combine the two, at Miss F's request, to make pumpkin gingerbread cake. The whole inspiration to making gingerbread came from Disneyland. We were riding through the Nightmare Before Christmas Haunted Mansion and there was a wonderfully good smelling gingerbread house in one of the rooms. Miss F has wanted to make gingerbread for her lunchbox ever since we got home. This gingerbread is a little more Halloween than Christmas, I adore it.
Pumpkin Gingerbread

¾ cup sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
½ cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1/3 cup water
1 cup pumpkin
1 teaspoon ginger
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon cloves
½ teaspoon allspice
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
1 ¾ cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon baking powder
¾ teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 inch square pan. In a large bowl mix together the sugars, oil, eggs and water. Beat in the pumpkin and the spices. Slowly add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir just until blended. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 40 minutes.
