Pumpkin Apple Spice Cake!

best part about this recipe: TWO main ingredients! how much easier does it get?! YAY - I was sold the second i saw the picture *HERE at Noble Pig (how fitting!).

Two-Ingredient Pumpkin Cake with Apple Cider Glaze
(Slightly adapted from *Noble Pig)

For the Cake:
1 Sugar Free Yellow Cake Mix
1 15 ounce can of pumpkin puree

For the Glaze:
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 Tablespoons apple cider
3/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Empty the contents of the boxed cake mix and pumpkin puree into a large bowl. Using a hand-mixer or stand mixer beat until well incorporated. The batter will be very thick, but will come together nicely.

Pour batter into a greased pan - mine was slightly large, so i ended up with a thinner cake. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. feel feel to make it thicker, just be sure to use the toothpick method to be sure its baked properly. Bake longer if needed, but pay attention - you don't want to overbake it!!

Let cool for 5-10 minutes in the pan, then flip onto a platter.

Make the glaze while you're waiting.

Combine powdered sugar, apple cider and pumpkin pie spice. Glaze should be thick but pourable. Add more sugar or cider if needed. Pour over the cake while still warm. Reserve some to pour over each slice when served.

Serve warm or room temperature.

this recipe was fun, simple, and delicious! the roommates devoured it SO FAST! i can't wait to make this again for a potluck or a girl's dinner! everyone was amazed at how moist it was and how quickly it was prepared. everyone from the most elite foodie to the most amateur baker can enjoy this recipe!
