Three Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Cake

I've mentioned this cake before, back when I first started blogging.  I was so new to the blogging world, that I wasn't yet taking photos of each and every recipe I prepared with the plan to include it in a blog post.

While the original recipe consist of a couple more ingredients, this time I decided to make it even simpler by just using 3 ingredients!

I made this cake for our Keurig Vue House Party and it was very well received!  I got lots of compliments on this super-easy dessert!

Three Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Cake

  • 1 boxed Spice Cake Mix
  • 1 15 oz. can pumpkin
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 containers of Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting
Cooking Directions
  1. With an electic hand mixer, combine all ingredients until well mixed.
  2. Pour into a glass 9x13 baking dish, sprayed with cooking spray.
  3. Bake according to directions on box.

Easy, right?  Okay, so technically, with the can of frosting, this is a 4-ingredient cake, but the frosting is pretty much optional...not really, you need the frosting...all cake needs frosting!  You could use a homemade cream cheese frosting as well, I just didn't have the time for homemade frosting as the dessert is always the last thing I make when preparing for a party!

While I've also seen this done as a 2 ingredient cake by omitting the egg, I prefer using the egg.  I've made this both ways and find that when I prepare this including the egg, the cake itself is less crumbly.  If you like your spice cake with raisins and nuts, check out the original, photo-less recipe.

I've linked this recipe to the following blog carnivals and linky parties:
