I was cleaning out my pantry the other day and found a cake mix and a can of pumpkin. I know it is not really the right season, but I LOVE pumpkin cake so I whipped up a batch using the easiest pumpkin cake recipe EVER.
All you need is 1 boxed cake mix ( I prefer spice or carrot) and a can of pumpkin (or pumpkin pie filling--either works).
You just mix the two together---do not add anything else!!! Simple huh???? It works to cook in a 9x9 for really thick cake. Or a bigger pan for thinner cake. Or a cupcake pan for cupcakes or muffins. I like to call them muffins because I can eat more muffins than cupcakes without feeling guilty. Use the baking temperature from the cake mix and cook until a toothpick comes out clean. It can take a while to cook, but it is worth it. They stay super moist and they are low fat (compared to actual cake). I don't know how LOW is LOW, but I tend to not think about it and eat a ton. It is good with cream cheese frosting, but my favorite is with whipped cream on top, This is my GO-TO recipe. If I forgot that I need to make something I whip these up and VOILA--yumminess. I need to try it with a SPRINGY type cake mix and see how it works. HMMMMM?????
