Having weekend guests? In search of an easy-peasy dessert recipe? Don’t worry, I have you covered. This recipe I stumbled upon definitely doesn’t disappoint (holy alliteration!). I had the urge to bake something when I got home from work yesterday. Something good. Something tasty. And of course something pumpkin! With only two ingredients, even the baking challenged can master this festive dessert. Yep, you read correctly. Two ingredients. Yellow cake mix & canned pumpkin … that’s it!

-1 yellow cake mix (tell no one!)
-1 15 ounce canned pumpkin puree

Mix together cake mix and canned pumpkin. Place in a greased pan and bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Drizzle glaze and pour evenly over cake. Serve warm.

Apple Cider Glaze
– half cup powder sugar
-2 table spoons apple cider
-1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice

Mix all ingredients and pour over warm cake.

The end result? Incredibly light, buoyant (it’s soo fluffy!!! no?), and melt in your mouth good, with just a hint of pumpkin. YUM!

What are everyone’s weekend plans? I plan on baking Halloween cookies with my favorite 6 year old, enjoying the beautiful Fall weather, and of course searching for my camera’s memory card (so I can share my weekend with you!),
