Tasty Thursday: Simple Pumpkin Goodies!

I found various ways to use these two ingredients in many recipes~!! To see where follow this link: Sweet Verbena
Pumpkin and Yellow cake mix!!
 No oil, no eggs, no water, nothing else. 

Just mix together.
It felt kind of strange not to add any liquids to the mix but it came together nicely into a thick batter.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. 
Add a dusting of powdered sugar, or better yet some homemade cream cheese frosting for added awesomeness. 

Pumpkin Cake
One Cake mix- I used yellow
1 -15 ounce can 100% pumpkin- puree, not pumpkin pie filling
Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl mix cake mix with pumpkin filling using a hand mixer or a stand mixer. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Pour batter into a greased 7 x 11 inch baking dish. Bake for 28 minutes or until tooth pick comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting. Serves 8.
Apple Cider Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
2 T. apple cider
1/2 t. pumpkin pie spice
In a small bowl blend all ingredients until smooth. Pour over Pumpkin Cake letting it drizzle down the sides of the cake. Let set before covering.

Also you can bake them up in 8 (8 ounce) wide-mouth mason jars for  kids’ lunchboxes. Under baked them for a few minutes so they will be a bit puddingy and kept it really simple by sprinkling them with powdered sugar
