Fall is one of my favorite seasons with the cooler weather and the arrival of all things pumpkin! From pumpkin pancakes to pumpkin waffles, pumpkin cookies to pumpkin cake, I enjoy finding (and trying) all sorts of different pumpkin recipes. Well, last night, I was thinking, hmm wouldn’t a pumpkin cake be delicious. So, I got online and searched for a pumpkin dessert. One of my favorite recipe sites is Allrecipes. I always search for the recipes with the highest ratings, read the reviews and then tweak the recipe as I see fit. As I was searching I came across a recipe that was so simple (It’s called Two Ingredient Pumpkin Cake): spice cake mix and 1 can of pumpkin. I didn’t believe that it could be that easy, but since I had those ingredients, my 7-year-old and I decided to make it (I did add a little bit of water to help mix the ingredients, but that was it). Then I set the timer for 15 minutes and just kept checking every 10 minutes after that. On my last check, my knife had a little bit of batter on it, but it looked done on the outside. So, I took it out and let it cool. Once it cooled, I thought I would try warming some chocolate frosting and drizzling it on top. (Notice the pieces missing!) Meanwhile, my husband initially said it would be gross, then, when he tasted a warm piece he thought it was too pumpkiny. Well, today, it is almost gone and he did say, “Mmmm this is so good!” Not bad for a 2 ingredient recipe (well, 3 if you decide to add the frosting)! Do you have any yummy pumpkin recipes you’d like to share?
These were cute, so I wanted to add them. My son was so proud of his etch-a-sketch picture and my daughter just kept trying out all of the stethoscopes. Today I’m linking up with Raising Homemakers.
