The oranges are optional, but they add a burst of freshness to the cake. If you make the cake a day ahead, garnish with orange wedges shortly before serving. You can also bake the cake in a Bundt pan, but reduce the oven temperature to 325º.

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup egg substitute
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin
3 cups sifted cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 cup (4 ounces) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
Garnish:
Fresh orange sections (optional)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°.

To prepare cake, place granulated sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended (about 5 minutes). Add egg substitute, 1/4 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla and pumpkin.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine the flour and next 6 ingredients (flour through nutmeg), stirring well with a whisk. Fold flour mixture into pumpkin mixture.

Spoon batter into a 10-inch tube pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 55 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in cake comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes on a wire rack. Remove from pan; place on wire rack.

To prepare glaze, place powdered sugar and cream cheese in a bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Beat in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Add orange juice, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating well after each addition. Drizzle warm cake with glaze. Cool completely on wire rack. Garnish with orange sections, if desired.
