When a friend told me about this cake I could hardly wait to try it in my dutch oven. It's a perfect camping recipe, none of the ingredients require refrigeration and all you need is a bowl, a spoon and a can opener. I found several variations of this dessert online, you can also make it with a spice or angel food cake mix and eliminate the spices. You might prefer an apple cider glaze or dusting it with powdered sugar over the frosting, for convenience the canned icing cannot be beat. In my 10 inch deep dutch oven the cake baked for 35 minutes with 10 coals in a ring around the base of the oven, 14 around the rim of the lid with 6 spaced evenly in the center. For a cake that has absolutely no eggs, oil or butter in it, it is surprisingly good and probably a little healthier for you too.
Three Ingredient Pumpkin Cake
1 15.25 oz package yellow cake mix
1 15 oz can pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice OR cinnamon
1 can prepared cream cheese frosting
Lightly oil or spray 10 inch dutch oven, line with parchment paper.
In large bowl, combine canned pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and cake mix, batter will be thick.
Spread batter evenly in prepared oven.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until tester comes out clean.
Cool completely before removing from oven, frost with canned icing.

Liddy, this cake is downright amazing! Even if it was harder to make it would be worth it. As easy as it is, it just makes it that much more incredible. Like Spinal Tap's amplifiers, this cake goes to 11!! Awesome stuff. Will be making this one often. Thanks for posting!ReplyDelete

So glad you have been enjoying the recipe Aaron, thanks for the great comments, LiddyDelete
Try using a spice cake mix instead of the yellow mix and you can probably nix the pie spice. I do this all the time for muffins for lunches and we love them. So simple and easy. Looking forward to trying this in my dutch oven camping in a few weeks!ReplyDelete
