I just love these glorified cake mix recipes - so easy and so fail proof. And I might add delicious as well. This would make a great holiday dessert. I like this just topped with sweetened whipped cream or if you prefer, a cream cheese frosting would also be good.
- 1 (18 1/4 ounce) package yellow cake mix
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ginger
- 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- Preheat oven to 375° and grease and flour a 9x13 baking pan.
- In large mixer bowl, stir together cake mix, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and ginger.
- Make a well in the center and pour in pumpkin, oil and eggs.
- Beat on low speed until blended.
- Scrape bowl and beat 4 minutes on medium speed.
- Stir in chopped pecans.
- Pour into prepared baking pan and bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
- Cool and frost as desired.
