Fall Harvest Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

1  1/2  C. sugar
1/2 C. brown sugar, packed
1/2 t. salt
2 t. baking soda
2 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
1/4 t ground ginger
1 C. oil
1/2 t. vanilla extract
4 eggs, beaten
2 C all purpose flour
15-oz can pumpkin
1 apple, cored, peeled, and chopped
1/2 c pecans , chopped  (optional)
16- oz container cream cheese frosting ( optional)

Mix first 10 ingredients together: then add flour 1/2 cup at a time. Blend in pumpkin and fold in the chopped apple and pecans. Pour into a greased and floured Bundt pan and bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool 20 minutes in the pan, turn out and complete cooling on a wire rack. Frost when cool.
I personally think you can skip the frosting and just sprinkle with powdered sugar. This cake is outstanding. My Grand Son loves the frosting, so I frost it if he is coming over. Please try it, you will agree, it's a keeper. My Husband adores this cake!
