Recipe was taken from a book “ideals Homemade Desserts” the chapter on Cakes page 5.  The original recipe was called Pumpkin Sheet Cake which instead of butter as I used was a cup of vegetable oil and there was no creaming method.   Reason for not using the original recipe at the time I did have any vegetable oil in stock.  (copy of original recipe herewith).
