1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 tsp salt added
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Grease the bottom of a 7 or 8-inch cake pan and dust it with cornmeal.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs until frothy, and add the oil; whisk to combine. Add the sweet potato/pumpkin puree and whisk well. Add the brown sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and pie spice and whisk to combine.In a separate mixing bowl whisk together the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet; and stir by hand just enough to make a smooth batter.
