Pumpkin Cake

I make this every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is just a simple cake that I sprinkle confectioners sugar over the top of when cooled or as ready to serve. This is also good with a cream cheese pumkin icing(I add a small amount of the pumkin mix to the cream cheese icing)


  • approx. 1c. pumkin ( I make the larger can of pumkin, pour what I can into a reg pie crust(8″) then what is left is what I use for this recipe)
  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 c. water
  • 1/4 c. vegetable oil


  1. I mix the cake mix, eggs, water and veg oil into the left over pumkin mix. Hint if the mixture is too thick just add about 1/8 c of water and 1 Tbsp oil to the mix. The water and oil depends on the amount of pumkin you have left.
    Bake at 350 for approx 40-45 min. Ovens may vary so make sure to check on your cake. Let cool and either ice with cream cheese pumkin icing or sprinkle with confectioners sugar and serve with vanilla ice cream.
