Where’s the magic you ask? 2 – count ‘em – 2 ingredients!
Ready? Here we go …
- 1 – Spice Cake Mix*
- 1 – 14oz can of pumpkin (not pie filling, just pumpkin)
Mix ingredients together using an electric mixer; the dough will be thick – do not add anything! (Nope, no eggs, oil or water – nada).
Pour into a well greased 9 x 13 pan and bake for 29-32 minutes at 350. ( It may be hard to spread out .. that’s OK, do the best you can .. it levels out at is bakes.) Since I used a glass pan, I turned the heat down to 325 and baked for ~31 minutes. Test cake for done-ness with toothpick at 28 minutes, since ovens vary.
Let cool, frost as desired. Top with vanilla, cream cheese, caramel or German Chocolate icing- or powdered sugar – your call. You can also add chopped walnuts to the icing if you like.
These make fabulous muffins, too!! (This makes about 14 large muffins).
*You can substitute chocolate cake mix for the spice cake mix. You will have a moist & decadent chocolate cake and no one will taste the pumpkin – I swear!
