    3/4 c  Cocoa powder
      1 tb Pumpkin-pie spice
      2 ts Baking powder
      1 ts Baking soda
      1 c  Butter or margarine, at room
      2 c  Granulated sugar

  pans. Line bottoms with waxed paper. 2.CAKE: Mix flour, cocoa powder
  spice, baking powder and baking soda. 3. Beat butter and granulated
  sugar in a large bowl with electric mixer until pale and fluffy. Beat
  in eggs one at a time until mixture looks like mayonnaise. 4. With
  mixer on low speed, beat in pumpkin, milk and vanilla (mixture will
  look curdled). Gradually beat in flour mixture, scraping down sides
  of bowl with rubber spatula 2 or 3 times. 5. Divide batter between
  prepared pans. Smooth tops. Bake 40 to 45 minutes until pick inserted

  remove pans, peel off waxed paper and let cakes cool completely. 7.

  and bring to a gentle boil. Stir until butter melts, sugar is
  disolved and mixture is smooth. 8. Using a hand-held electric mixer
  gradually beat confectioners' sugar and extract into hot mixture. Or
  pour hot mixture into a bowl and beat in sugar and extract with a
  stand mixture. 9. Immediately place 1 cake layer upside-down on
  serving plate. Spread with warm frosting (if frosting cools it will
  set and a crust may form on the surface. Beat again until smooth.)
  Place other layer right side up over sides and top. Cover with
  plastic wrap or store in cake keeper.
