3 ingredient Pumpkin Pie Cake {recipe}


With Fall coming full force, I’m getting very excited to start baking more often. Especially using one of my most favorite flavors in the world. Pumpkin. I love the smell of pumpkin candles, I absolutely LOVE pumpkin pie, and when Casey and I were first married, we made it a habit to stop by the local gas station for pumpkin ice cream cones on date night.

I love me some pumpkin.

My cute friend, Allison, made this yummy pumpkin pie cake the other night for craft night. And let me tell you… AMAZING!!!

So I hit her up for the recipe, and you would not believe how EASY it is! I was shocked when she told me there were only 3 ingredients! 

 This dessert is a mix between a pumpkin pie and a cake. It’s super dense and moist, like a pie, but still a little cakey. 

 I suppose technically, since there is frosting involved, this should be called 4 ingredient pumpkin pie cake… But, in my version, I skipped out on the chocolate chips, which are optional, so I’m going to stick with the 3 ingredient title…

But you can do it either way, with or without chocolate chips. It also might be really yummy with some walnuts or pecans thrown on top. If you’re into that kind of thing.

And, this dessert would be perfect to take to a party. There are no eggs or milk in it, so it doesn’t need to stay refrigerated. And trust me, it is quite the crowd pleaser. You will have people asking YOU for the recipe.

  1. 1 large can pumpkin (29 ounce)
  2. 2 spice cake mixes
  3. 1 bag milk chocolate chips (optional)
  4. Cream cheese frosting (I like Betty Crocker's canned frosting, but you can use homemade too.)
  1. Combine pumpkin, cake mixes, and chocolate chips. Spread on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
  1. This makes a large amount. If you are wanting less, just half it. Use a smaller can of pumpkin, one cake mix, and half a bag of chocolate chips.
