Ingredients

  • 1 yellow cake mix (18.5 oz)
  • 3 2/5 ounces vanilla instant pudding
  • 16 ounces pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice (optional *)
  • 1/2 cup pecans (optional – we aren’t big pecan fans so we don’t use them)
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 5 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup (I sometimes do a full tablespoon)
  • 3 cups confectioners sugar

Directions

  1. 1Heat oven to 325 degrees. In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients except for pecans. Mix on medium speed for 2 minutes, then increase speed to medium/high for another three minutes. If you are adding nuts, stir them in. Spoon batter into prepared pan(s). Bake at 325 degrees for 45 to 55 minutes (that’s for a bundt cake, for a three layer regular cake they cook for less time) or until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Cool for ten minutes. (I always shake it when I pull it out of the oven first and then let it cool). Remove from pan and let cool completely on rack.
