3-Ingredient Pumpkin Pie Cake
How is it possible to make a cake with only three ingredients? Do not scoff; it is absolutely true, and possible! Make sure you buy everything comes from a can or box! This recipe for 3 ingredient pumpkin pie cake is super easy, and can be made by the aspiring baker in your house, if you want to hand over the reins in the kitchen for a day. Your young baker can just pop the cake mixes together, plus the one extra ingredient called for (no, we are not giving that special ingredient away here, but you might guess what it is), then pile on the icing (commercial) when the cake is done. Easy peasy. It is a great starter recipe.
Pumpkin is also a lovely vegetable, and has great versatility in the kitchen. It is a good veggie to get familiar with because it is also so cheap and easy to cook with, not to mention delicious! Sweet pumpkins are usually used when making pies and cakes, although there are a lot of varieties to be had. And pumpkin, baked in the round, with a bit of butter, salt and pepper is also fabulous as a veggie. You can serve it with chicken, red meat, or fish. It works with all of them beautifully. Pumpkin also makes a great soup, slightly sweet, and with fantastic color. It is hard to resist just because of the color. Serve pumpkin soup with yogurt on top of it to add a splash of color and a bit of tangy taste to the sweetness. Or make pumpkin pasta. The uses for pumpkin are pretty endless. Pumpkin also has plenty of nutrition, and its properties help protect your eyes, keep your heart healthy, and may even help you lose weight. Now do we have your attention? Pumpkin might help you lose weight if it becomes part of your regular food plan because of two things. First, it is a low calorie food, but one that is dense. It is dense, in part, because of the amount of fiber that is found in pumpkin. So the fiber helps to make you feel full and satisfied more quickly. That can mean you will eat less and so possibly lose weight more easily, or keep your weight under control. Other foods on the dense fiber list include whole apples, eaten fresh and with the skin, and even potatoes, when you eat them with the skin. Watch the butter, sour cream or bacon and other high calorie additions that will turn these low fat, low calorie, and high density foods in to something quite different!
In any case, 3 ingredient pumpkin pie cake is a quick and easy recipe for those days when you want something good on the table, but just do not have the time (or maybe you lack the energy) to make something more demanding. Or, this recipe can be an opportunity for aspiring bakers in your house to try their hand at baking for the first time. Any way you serve it, every one in the family will appreciate this dessert.
