This is a recipe using only pumpkin puree and cake mix.

Ingredients:

Directions:

All you do is mix the puree and the cake mix. Don't add water. It will seam really thick; that's OK. Just spread in a baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray. You can ice or glaze. That's it. A tasty cake without using oil, eggs, or milk.

I made these for gifts for my co-workers and they loved it.

Can be served glazed or plain. If you like pumpkin, this is great and no one knows or can tell there's bran in it. Great for those wanting to "sneak in" some fiber.

Pumpkin Cake

My sister in law just made a really good pumpkin cake. She said you use a store bought spice cake mix (dry not by box directions); 1 can of pumpkin and 1/2 cup of water. Just mix the 3 things and bake. She served with cool whip but you could probably frost as well. (10/05/2005)

Ingredients:

  • 1 box Angel Food cake mix
  • 1-15 oz. can Pumpkin
  • 1 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1 cup Water

Directions:

Mix the dry angel food cake mix with the remaining ingredients. Pour into a greased 9x13 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes. This cake is delicious and it is a treat for anyone watching their weight. It is very low in fat.

(When I made this, I used a round bundt pan and it took longer than 25 minutes. to bake. It's not a dry cake, like your average angel food. It's dense from the pumpkin, but a very good cake. Refrigerate any leftovers as it will mold fast.)

Pumpkin Angel Food Cake

I baked the cake and when I turned it upside down on a bottle to cool, the center of the cake fell out. (11/17/2007)

Pumpkin Angel Food Cake

I baked a similar recipe - angel food cake mix, 1 cup pumpkin, 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice. Baked at 350 in a NON-greased bundt pan, turned it upside-down on a floured pizza pan after knifing the edges, and it came out absolutely perfectly. Will frost with low-fat whipped cream and maybe sprinkle with cinnamon. (11/21/2007)
