It's Works For Me Wednesday! Pumpkin Cake!


I have this super duper easy recipe that I would like to share with all of you. As a matter of fact I made it today, and it is sooooo simple and delicious.

All you need is 2 little ingredients.

1 Box of Cake Mix (I really like how this turns out with Spice Cake)
1 15 ounce can of pumpkin


Set your oven to 325 degrees, and get out a big bowl. Combine the 2 ingredients really well. (Do not add anything else! Have faith, this recipe will turn out great!) Use a spoon to mix it with, as the batter will be very stiff, and egg beaters will not cut it.

Spread the batter into a greased cake pan, cupcake pan, or bundt pan. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean when you poke it in. This is about 40 minutes for a Bundt pan, 20 minutes for cupcakes. Melt some frosting and drizzle it on the top. Accept compliments graciously.


I hope that you like this recipe, it's so stinking easy. It's got fiber in it, and pumpkin is a veggie right? So no guilt if you feed this to your kids twice a week for snack ;) !!!For more ideas for things that make our lives a little easier, hop on over to Rocks In My Dryer, and see what's working for other friendly faces!

I made this exact recipe as cookies a few weeks ago! Thanks for reminding me; I want to make it again. They turned out super chewy and fluffy!

This is an excellent tip! Thanks. I love pumpkin and I'm not sure I've ever seen an easier recipe.

Thanks for the idea. I was wondering what I was going to do with the extra pumpkin in my fridge. Now I don't have to wonder anymore :)

I wonder if you could use a german chocolate and add some pumpkin pie type spice and the pumpkin...Drizzled with some carmel icing? Oh... I am making myself hungry.

This sounds wonderful. I will have to give it a try. I bet a cream cheese frosting would be good on it.

I make this all the time, except I add about 1/2 cup of water. I think it is originally a WW recipe, and yes, pumpkin is SUPER good for you, so feel good about giving it to the kids. Sometimes I add a handful of chocolate chips to the batter... yummmmm!
