Pumpkin + Spice

Well, we're back to having a super warm weather week in Texas, but I won't let the 90 degree temps keep me from celebrating fall! I've actually posted this recipe before here, but it's too good to not share again!

pumpkin spice cake

Take 1 Spice cake mix, 1 can of pumpkin and 2/3 cup water. Mix well and bake according to directions on the package. Top with cream cheese icing. Easy and delicious!

Last time I made this I did it in a bundt pan. I have to admit, it's a really pretty cake if you drizzle the icing on it! This time I was about to make cupcakes when I saw my loaf pan. Now, I realize that cake mixes don't put cooking directions for a loaf pan on them for a reason! I had to keep checking in on the cake because I wasn't sure how long it would need to bake. {it ended up being around 35 minutes.}

As odd as it may seem to make a cake in a loaf pan, once I really thought about it I thought it was a great idea! {I know, humble brag.} I plan on making up several of these in foil tins to give as holiday gifts this season. This cake isn't overly sweet, so it could be a breakfast dish too, as long as you're like me and have no shame in eating cake for breakfast!

I hope you'll try this recipe out soon.. I promise you won't be disappointed!
