The other day I was doing a google image search trying to find some cute and yummy ideas for fall desserts. I love fall and anything pumpkin-y, cinnamin-y, and I came accross this picture...
The two ingredients:
box of yellow cake mix
can of pumpkin
When my Aunt Kimmy did weight watchers, she gave us the recipe for some muffins that are 1 point a piece using either a chocolate cake mix or spice cake mix and a can of pumpkin, so I am no strager to this idea, but yellow cake? How come I never thought of that? Because lets be honest... what's not to love about yellow cake.
So, I made it last night. The recipe used an apple cider glaze, but since I don't regularly have apple cider in my house, I just made a cream cheese glaze.
I sneaked a slice before I headed out the door for school, and it was fabulous. I don't know if you've ever made anything like this, but the can of pumpkin makes it so moist, and you can't get easier than 2 ingredients.
And since we're on the subject of yellow cake and how it makes everything better, if you ever need a quick and easy dessert, dump a yellow cake mix over a can of pie filling, canned peaches, jar of applsauce, (you get the idea) cut up a stick of butter and put that on top, and then bake it until it's golden brown and serve with icecream.
Oh, and while searching the food network I came accross two blogs of contestants that have been on Ultimate Recipe Showdown, and they are fabulous so I tought I would share...
