Prepare an 8 x 8 pan, preheat oven to 350 degrees.

¼ c shortening
½ c sugar
½ c packed brown sugar
1 egg
¾ c cooked pumpkin
1 ½ c sifted cake flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
¼ c milk
½ tsp vanilla
1 ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/3-1/2 c toffee bits
½ c pumpkin flavored chips

Cream together shortening and sugars. Add egg, pumpkin and spice. Combine dry ingredients. Blend in milk and dry ingredients, alternating, starting with milk. Do not over mix; best to use a whisk instead of a mixer. Fold in toffee bits and pumpkin chips. Bake in 350 oven for 40-50 minutes or until center bounces bake when lightly pressed. Let cake cool on rack. When completely cool top with cream cheese frosting and garnish with toffee bits.
