Pumpkin Bread Craze

Ok, so I admit I'm not the first one with this idea.  I have read about it on Pinterest and this blog.  But it sounds so good and easy I had to try it.  I am ALL for three ingredient recipes.  Plus, with Handsome's birthday party coming up, I had an excuse to make it.

Pumpkin Bread

  • one box spice cake mix
  • one can pumpkin
  • few shakes of pumpkin pie spice
Mix ingredients in a bowl.  It will be really thick and hard to stir.  This is the one time I wish I used a mixer instead of a wooden spoon.  Pour into pan and bake according to package directions.


Variation of Pumpkin Bread/Cake


  • one box of yellow cake mix
  • one can of pumpkin
  • few shakes of pumpkin pie spice
  • mini chocolate chips
Mix first three ingredients in bowl.  Once combined, fold in chocolate chips.  Pour into pan and bake according to package directions.  (I used a fluted pan and drizzled cream cheese frosting over the top)


Pumpkin bread pictured on plate.  Chocolate chip pumpkin cake pictured on stand.  Cupcake recipe to come.  They don't involve pumpkin.  Both pumpkin treats turned out VERY moist.  I might have been able to bake them a bit longer, however, they were not under done.  I definitely will try these again!

Anyone else have a fabulous three ingredient recipe?  What about a "go to" recipe when you throw a party?  Please share!

Your cake recipe reminds me of Pumpkin Cake Cookies. 1 box spice cake mix, 1 15 ounce can pumpkin, 1 cup chopped walnuts or 1 cup chopped pecans or 1/2 cup raisins or 1 cup chocolate chips (or some variation), Cream cheese frosting (optional). Bake dropfuls on greased cookie sheet, 350 for 8-15 minutes.
