Pumpkin Cake

I found a recipe for Pumpkin Cake on Pinterest, here is the link

Two-Ingredient Pumpkin Cake with Apple Cider Glaze
For the Cake:
1 Yellow Cake Mix
1 15 ounce can of pumpkin puree

For the Glaze:
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 Tablespoons apple cider
3/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Empty the contents of the boxed cake mix and pumpkin puree into a large bowl.  Using a hand-mixer or stand mixer beat until well incorporated.  The batter will be very thick, but will come together nicely.

Pour batter into a greased  7 x 11 X 2 pan.  This is the small, rectangular-sized pan from your Pyrex set.  You know, the set you had to have when you got married and rarely ever used all the pieces.  Finally, you have a use for it.

Bake at 350 degrees for 28 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Do not over bake.

Let cool for 5-10 minutes in the pan, then flip onto a platter.

Make the glaze while you're waiting.

Combine powdered sugar, apple cider and pumpkin pie spice.  Glaze should be thick but pour-able   Add more sugar or cider if needed.  Pour over the cake while still warm.  Reserve some to pour over each slice when served.

Serve warm or room temperature.

I decided to change it a little.

Pumpkin Cake

1 box White cake mix ( I use Duncan Hines)
1 15 oz can of Pumpkin puree
3 Tablespoons Apple Cider
1 teaspoon Pumpkin Spice
1 egg

Mix all ingredients together in a stand mixer on medium speed for about 2 minutes.  Pour into greased 9" x 13" baking dish.  Bake at 350 degrees for 28 minutes.  When cool I spread Cream Cheese Frosting on top.  This was a favorite dish for everyone.  If you decide to try this please leave me a comment to let me know what you think about it.

Happy Scrappin',
