3 Ingredient Pumpkin Cake

Last week I came across a recipe for a pumpkin cake, it was my favorite kind of recipe. You know, a recipe with only 2 ingredients! Well I read all the reviews some people added extra sugar, condensed milk, extra eggs to give it a little something extra. I wanted to stay as true to the recipe as possible but to make the batter more manageable I added 2 eggs.

This cake seriously took 5 minutes to put together and then I just let it bake for as long as the box cake mixture directed. Let it cool and put on my icing. And it turned out so yummy! I know this holiday season if  I am ever in a hurry to throw something together that does not require a lot of fuss, this will be my go to recipe.

Ingredients:
  • 1 box Spice Cake Mix
  • 1 can Libby's Pumpkin
  • 2 eggs




Yep, that's it! I put my ingredients in a bowl and broke out my hand mixer. Mixed it for a few minutes and poured it into my cake pan. I baked for about 35 minutes. While it was cooling I made my own concoction for the frosting. I bought Cream Cheese Icing (the best icing there is) and I mixed it with cinnamon. When the cake was cool, I covered my cake in my new twist on cream cheese icing.





Thanks for reading! :)

  3. you can make this without the eggs and it still turns out perfect! Use spice cake mix and beat in a can of pumpkin, pour into a bundt cake pan sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 40 min or until done. Cool, invert on serving platter and sift powdered sugar over the top OR melt a few tbsp of cream cheese frosting and drizzle over the top. Also, for a different flavor, follow same directions but use choc cake mix or devils food and pumpkin. Bake the same way and I usually melt some white choc and drizzle over the top or just the sifted powdered sugar. Super simple and yes, the cake does rise without eggs.
