The Easiest (3 Ingredient) Holiday Cake!

During the holidays simplicity is a must!  It's so easy to get caught out shopping and fail to get to the grocery store to buy the necessary ingredients for your upcoming potlluck!  Don't you hate it when that happens?  I do!  So, I tend to keep this 3 ingredients on hand to whip up a healthy delight and create a crowd pleaser!  Hope you find success with it, too!

Pumpkin Spice Cake
1 package Spice Cake Mix (Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines)
1 egg
1 (14.5oz) can Pumpkin (not pumpkin pie!)

Directions (Are you ready?):
Spray a bundt pan with cooking spray. Preheat your oven according to box directions. Mix all three ingredients and pour into pan.  Bake for 25-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool for 10 minutes, invert onto a plate and remove bundt pan once you hear a "thud." Dust with powdered sugar or drizzle with a flavored icing (orange or vanilla are both fabulous).  Enjoy! 

Now wasn't that easy? Love it!  Keep these ingredients on hand for your next dessert emergency! This cake is moist, high in fiber, low in fat, and a delightful holiday addition to your next holiday party!

I love this idea! Adding pumpkin to a cake mix really pumps up the nutrition. I've added a little canned pumpkin to pancakes and brownies as well!
