Preheat oven to 350º

Prepare pans with Baker’s Joy; or Canola Oil Spray and a light dusting of flour. Line the pans with parchment or waxed paper cut to fit the pan.

In the mixer’s bowl beat the butter and sugar together for a full 10 minutes. It will look lemony light and fluffy. Meanwhile, measure and sift the dry ingredients into a large bowl. In a large bowl, using a wire whisk, mix Pumpkin puree with buttermilk or kefir. Alternately add the flour mixture and the buttermilk and flavorings, continuing to beat. Stop the mixer. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl incorporating the residual butter sugar which may be clinging to the walls of the bowl. Beat again for 2 minutes. Do not over work. Fold in the crystallized Ginger pieces. 

Pour into prepared pans and smooth tops. Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour or until a toothpick can be inserted into the cake and come out clean and the cake has begun to pull away from the sides of the pan and is springy to the touch.Cool on wire racks for 10 minutes. Then invert pans and remove them for further cooling. When cool lightly frost the cake with thinned out frosting to seal in the moisture and crumbs. Allow to dry and set up. Place on cake plate frost with Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting. Decorate.

For smaller parties you can cut the recipe in half.
