Two Ingredient Cake–Spice Cake Mix and Pumpkin Puree

I have been meaning to post this recipe as another option for making the 2-ingredient cake.  This one uses pumpkin puree.  It is also 5 PP per slice.

I am not opposed to using cake mix every now and then.  It comes in handy when you are in a crunch for time.

The result is a dense but super moist cake.  Great for this time of the year.

Ingredients

House Party Foster Farms 001

Serves 12

5 PP per serving

  • Spice Cake mix
  • 1 15 ounce can pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling

Directions

Combine cake mix with pumpkin in a large bowl.

Mix thoroughly — batter will be VERY thick — and transfer to a baking pan sprayed with nonstick spray; bake in the oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. (Refer to cake-mix box for pan size and approximate bake time.)

I am going to recommend that you do not use a Bundt pan because this batter is so thick and difficult to spread around the pan.  Otherwise you will get a lopsided cake, like mine. Smile

 

If you decide to make a glaze, it will increase your PP.  I made an apple cider glaze.

House Party Foster Farms 002

  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Directions

Combine all the ingredients until you get a thin consistency, one that can pour over your cake easily.  You may need to eye ball it.  You may need more or less of the apple cider or extract.  If it’s too watery add a bit more sugar.  If it’s too think add more apple cider.

    • I am so glad that it was a success. I was just telling my husband that my 2 ingredient spice cake with pumpkin puree was going viral on Pinterest, but it sure is nice to have someone come back to the post and comment that they liked it. Thanks again Rhianna.

  2. made cupcakes “muffins” from it – outstanding! was thinking about dusting with powdered sugar at first but decided it didn’t need it.

  3. I am a nutrition professional and school wellness coach. i am recommending schools serve this tasty cake as a cupcake for Halloween parties.

  4. Was planning on making whoopie pies with pumpkin purée, but I only bought yellow cake mix… Do you recommend any spices to keep it from being too bland? Also, do you think I should add something to make it less thick of a batter so it will be more like a whoopie pie little pancake when baked on a cookie sheet? Worried the texture will be off…

    • You can add cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, or allspice. If you have pumpkin pie spice you can try that too. As far as getting this thickness to be less thick, try adding milk. 1 tablespoon at a time. Now remember, I have not tried this method so it would be a science project until you are successful. I use the tablespoon at a time method for thinning out my pancake patter and it works perfectly for me. So I suggest dividing your batter. Try the test on a small portion of the batter make two or three and see how they turn out. Now I am curious how they turn out too. Take photos and if you love them we can post on my blog. Let me know. and good luck.

  5. This might sound a little stupid, but for the cake mix, do you add all the water, eggs, and oil?
    In other posts I’ve read people saying you don’t need eggs or oil…
    So is it just the cake mix and purée? Or is it the cake mix with the water, eggs, and oil mixed together with the puree?

    • Hi Lydia: Just the cake mix and the pumpkin pie puree. Nothing else. It is a little dense though. It has great flavor when made with spice cake mix, which is what I used when I made mine. Good luck and let me know what you think about it if you decide to make it.

I love hearing from my readers!
