Step 1

Place the flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger in a large mixing bowl, and whisk together until combined.

Step 2

Add the butter, and mix on medium-low speed until the mixture resembles damp sand.

Step 3

Add the eggs, one at a time, allowing each one to fully incorporate before adding the next.

Step 4

Stir in the pumpkin puree, sour cream, and vanilla, then scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl with a silicone spatula.

Step 5

Turn the mixer up to medium speed and mix for about 90 seconds, to aerate the batter and develop the cake's structure.

Step 6

Transfer the batter to the prepared pan, and bake for 25 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Step 7

Cool completely, ice with cream cheese frosting, and dust with additional cinnamon for garnish.
