TIPS FOR MAKING THIS PUMPKIN CAKE:

  • If you can’t find spice cake mix, try using a carrot cake mix.
  • This can also be made into muffins as well.
  • The cream cheese needs to be fully softened before making the frosting. This will help it whip up more creamy without any lumps.
  • This cake needs to be kept refrigerated.

INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)
pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
milkspice cake mix, canned pumpkin puree, large eggs, cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, milk

HOW TO MAKE THIS EASY PUMPKIN SPICE CAKE:

Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. I like the cooking spray that has flour in it (Baker’s Joy). In a bowl, mix together cake mix, pumpkin puree and eggs.pumpkin puree, eggs and spice cake mix in a large, clear mixing bowlSpread batter into prepared baking dish.

Then stir in vanilla. Remember, if using a stand mixer, it’s important that you periodically scrape down the sides of the bowl so all the ingredients get incorporated. And lastly, mix in the milk.

I like to put these little mallow creme pumpkins on top of the slices. If you are taking it to a potluck, it lets folks know that this is something with pumpkin in it.Two slices of pumpkin spice cake shown on small white plates with a bottle of milk in the background
