Your family and friends will think you spent hours in the kitchen on this amazing cake, when in reality its only 4 ingredients (without the icing) and super easy to make! This cake is perfect for when you are in a hurry and need something quick. We loved the taste of this cake and can’t wait to make it again.


1  (16 ounce) Box of Angel Food Cake Mix
1 (15 ounce) can of Libby’s 100% pure pumpkin
1/2 cup of chopped pecans (optional)
1 teaspoon of my homemade pumpkin spice





Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together and pour into sprayed bunt pan. Cook on 350 for 30 – 35 minutes, until knife comes out clean in center.


You can glaze this cake if you like or enjoy it without.


1 cup of powdered sugar
2 teaspoons of milk

Mix together and gently pour over cake!

  1. Looks very tasty. Greetings Joe

  2. Well… It did not work for me… it came out like a pudding…very heavy… I opted not to put an icing on it.. and found the cake itself tasted somewhat sour? Very strange taste.. And there was no way I could have miss measured or left anything out.. Really bad… will not make it again.

      How very odd.. I can’t imagine why this wouldn’t work out or why it would taste sour. I have made it now 3 times and that has never happened and had great reviews from other people. Sorry it didnt work for you.

      • Boxed cake recipes are a dime a dozen. When one really bakes it’s from scratch. Please teach what is really worth baking. Not happy with this at all.
