    1 can of pumpkin

    especially good with chocolate or spice. You can't even taste the pumpkin.


bake according to cake directions. do not add any other ingredients. I have baked in cupcake or fluted tube pan, and both are wonderful. I like with no icing, but they are good dusted with powedered sugar.

    Someone made the comment that you cut the oil and water "slightly" in this recipe. The idea is to REPLACE the oil, water, eggs, anything liquid from the cake mix instructions. It's only cake mix and pumpkin. No oil, eggs, water, sugar, nuthin...that's how you get the low fat/calories of this cake. - 10/8/10

    To those who are wondering how much pumpkin to add: I did a bit of detective work. I clicked on "Full nutritional breakdown" in the Nutrition box to see the recipe by ingredient. It says it calls for 0.17 cups per (12) servings. 0.17 x 12 = about 2 cups, so it's probably a 15 oz. can. Looks yummy! - 10/18/14

    Delicious. Had to add a little water. I made them into 24 cupcakes - very good with low fat cool whip. - 1/22/13

    I use this all the time, including with brownies. I do cut the water and oil slightly, because of the pumpkin's weight. - 10/25/09
