I don't know about that but in weight watchers the gave us a recipe of

1 box cake mixed (dry) with 1 can of pumpkin

then stir and add just enough water to get the cake batter look..then bake. I use carrot cake or spice cake. Doesn't even need icing. Lots of people in WW use chocolate but not me.

Yes you can, same amount. I do it all the time and just change the spices to the amounts used for pumpkin pie. Of course, I love those spices.

I am so glad you asked this question as I would never have thought of it. As a side note has some really good recipes for using pumpkin (power of pumpkin). That may come in handy when you open a can to use as applesauce and can't use all of it.
