Yes, it’s Monday again…. the weekend is never long enough! But that’s alright because I have a great recipe for you all to try this week.
It’s a really simple, easy, and quick cake to make. What’s even better is that it’s healthy for you!
Alright, so here are the ingredients.
1 box cake mix – any flavor you want. You can even use a reduced sugar cake mix.
1 15 oz can of pumpkin
2 eggs or 1/2 cup of egg beaters – these are optional. You can make the cake without the eggs and it turns out just fine.
1 tsp (or more if you like) pumpkin pie spice – leave this out if you want
Now it doesn’t get any easier than this….
Preheat over to 350 degrees and spray your 13×9 cake pan or cupcake pan.
Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl. It will be really thick and this is alright so don’t worry.
Spread the batter in the pan evenly and bake for 25 – 30 minutes for the 13×9 and about 15 minutes for cupcakes.
For my cake I wanted the pumpkin flavor to really stand out so I used a yellow cake mix and it was pretty good. I think that I would have liked a spice cake better though just because there would have been more of the flavor that I was looking for. The yellow cake gave it a sweeter flavor than I wanted… but it was still good.
We left ours plain…. no frosting at all. But you can add a frosting, glaze, or fresh fruit.
Note: When you use a chocolate cake mix you can’t taste the pumpkin and it has more of a dense brownie taste. You can also use this to make cookies.
Give it try and let me know what you think?
