  • The reason I chose to blog this the day before Thanksgiving is because this is for all those who found out they have to bring a last minute Thanksgiving dessert. Don’t worry; I’ve gotchya covered.

    This recipe can be made with only 2 ingredients. That’s right, just two. If you want to add other spices, feel free. You probably already have them in your kitchen anyway.

    Pumpkin Spice Coffee Cake
    I got this idea from Jennifer at JaneDeereBlog. She’s super awesome! She just took these two things:
    ….and made a cake out of them!
    You can use several different kinds of cake mix; vanilla, chocolate, spice, carrot, or butter pecan. I choose spice cake because it sounded most like Thanksgiving to me. Carrot might have to be my next try. It is my favorite after all! Jennifer baked her cake in a bunt pan, but I choose to use a 9X13 baking dish and cut them into squares. So easy!
    Pumpkin Spice Coffee Cake
          makes 24 pieces
    1 box spice cake mix
    1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
    1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
    For topping {optional}
    2 T sugar + 1/8 tsp pumpkin pie spice + 1/8 tsp cinnamon
    Preheat oven to 350° and spray 9X13 baking dish with Baker’s Joy. In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix, pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice (optional). Mixture will be thick and sticky. Spread mixture into prepared dish. Bake for 15 minutes, remove from oven and sprinkle with part of sugar mixture. Bake for an additional 10 minutes (25 total), remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with remaining sugar topping. Let cool and slice.
    This cake is so moist there is no need for oil or eggs. It sets up and is fluffy and light. Pumpkin pie spice is such a staple in the kitchen now, but if you want to make your own, try my Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice recipe. It also makes wonderful gifts!

    By the way, I have NO idea who tried this or blogged this first. But I saw it on Jane Deere first, so I’m giving her the credit. She’s a smart lady! :)
    Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope yall have a safe and wonderful time with family and friends. Hope you have a lot to be thankful for; I sure do!
