You can be a hero to your family with this two ingredient Vegan Pumpkin Spice Cake – really. This is another Vegemergency recipe. My last Vegemergency recipe was Vegan Apple Dump Cake – and all our kids ask for it when they visit now.
We are always privileged to have meateaters, vegans, dairy free, mushroom-phobic and nut allergic visitors and family. It’s a challenge to try to address all of these diets – but we do a pretty good job of it!! Sometimes, we get too carried away with the main course, the appetizers and all the sides. —— and then —– what about dessert? In a panic we run to the store to find a pie — and maybe a vegan pie —– that’s just not going to happen at the last minute.
Does this every happen to you?
Vegan Pumpkin Spice Cake – two ingredients
So that’s when Vegan Pumpkin Spice Cake can make us a hero. Nobody needs to know that we took a box of spice cake mix and threw in a can of pumpkin puree. That’s kind of cheating isn’t it? The only thing that guests or family need to know is that it’s homemade, fresh baked, by you – and it’s vegan.
For this recipe I took one package of Duncan Hines Spice Cake Mix and mixed it with one 15 oz can of pumpkin puree. I sprayed an 8 by 12 inch cake pan with vegan non-stick coating, put that batter in and baked it in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 25 minutes. That’s it! That’s all – two ingredients, mix and bake. The pumpkin puree helps the cake mix bind together instead of eggs – and a nice dense – lightly spiced cake is produced.
If you wanted to fancy things up bit – you could add raisins or nuts to the mix before baking. You could bake the cake in a shaped cake pan – like a silicone bundt cake pan – but only if you have such a thing.
Finally, you could dust the cake with some icing sugar – or drizzle a mixture of icing sugar and non-dairy milk (1/2 cup to 1 tablespoon) – over the top.
None of these extra steps are necessary – because the cake smells and tastes great as is, and you need to get back to enjoying your guests and your meal! My cake began disappearing before I got to fancy it up and well before dinner. I was a baking hero with a silly, simple two ingredient cake.
After these years of social distancing, I am especially thankful – all year round for any and all family visits, and wish for the same for you and yours!
