Pumpkin Spice Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
There are times that I skip putting anything on top of this pumpkin spice cake, because I am to excited to take a big ol’ bite of it. Then there are times when I grab a a container of the premade cream cheese frosting and other times I make some homemade cream cheese frosting. I like it all 3 ways, but I am not going to tell you which way is the best way because that is a choice that is to hard to make!
I will tell you that I do not ever take the time to spread the frosting or make it beautiful. That is a waste of time that I could be taking bites of warm pumpkin spice cake. So I just use a piping bag to squirt it on, or just plop it on top.
A few tools to help when making this recipe
- Toothpicks. You can use a fork or a knife to check and see if the cake is done baking, but I find it easier to use a toothpick.
- Bundt Cake Pan. You can use any cake pan, however I love the shape of this cake when it is cooked in a bundt pan.
- Oven mitts. Be sure to use quality oven mitts when you are removing things from the oven. Otherwise you will end up burning your hands.
Pumpkin Spice Cake ingredients:
- 1 15 ounce can of pumpkin puree (not the pumpkin pie stuff that will make it taste funny)
- 1 box of spice cake mix
How to Make Pumpkin Spice Cake
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl mix the cake mix and the can of pumpkin puree. And mix well. It is going to be thick, and smell amazing. You can use an electric mixer, a hand mixer or just a spoon to mix it all together.
You can bake this pumpkin spice cake in a 9×13 pan, a bundt pan or 2 square 8 inch pans. Just use which ever one you have on hand.
Then spray the pan with nonstick cooking spray. Pour the cake batter into your prepared pan.
Bake the cake at 350 for 15 minutes. Use a toothpick or a fork and poke the cake to check and see if it is cooked all the way thru.
If it is not fully baked after 15 minutes bake for a few minutes and check to see if it is done. The cake is done when the toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
Once you take the spice cake out of the oven, you have 2 choices, dive right in with a fork or cut it if you are supposed to be sharing it. LOL
If you are going to frosting the cake let it cool for a few minutes and the use a piping bag and pip the frosting on top or just plop it on top and spread it.
Either one will make you a happy person because you are eating this amazing 2 ingredient Pumpkin Cake!
