If you're looking for the best easy pumpkin recipe you can make as soon as fall hits, look no further than this Maple Frosted Pumpkin Cake! This is literally one of the simplest cake recipes you'll ever make because it uses only 4 ingredients. What could be better than that? Many recipes made with cake mix require other ingredients to make the cake complete, but this recipe asks only that you combine the cake mix with pumpkin puree and mix well. Next, you'll create a creamy and decadent glaze by combining white frosting and maple syrup. Wait for your cake to bake and mix up your glaze and you can be eating this sweet treat in just under 45 minutes. Score.

Easy

Ingredients

  • For the Cake:
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • For the Glaze:
  • 1 jar white frosting
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Empty the contents of the boxed cake mix and pumpkin puree into a large bowl. Using a hand-mixer or spatula, mix until well incorporated.The batter will be very thick but will come together nicely.

  2. Pour batter into a greased 8-inch square pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 28 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Do not over-bake.

  3. Let cool for 5-10 minutes in the pan. Make the glaze while you're waiting.

  4. Combine white frosting and maple syrup. The glaze should be thick but pourable. Pour over the cake while still warm.

  5. Serve warm or room temperature.

Other than the maple frosting this pumpkin cake sounds amazing, but I've always wondered in recipes like this...if you don't use the eggs and oil with the cake mix doesn't it turn out too dense, or is it supposed to be like that? I'm not really a huge fan of maple or really sweet desserts so I think for the icing maybe I could add some pumpkin spice into the frosting or simply dust the cake with a touch of powdered sugar.

This maple frosted pumpkin cake sounds like a perfect addition to a brunch tablescape with Thanksgiving fast approaching. I like to lay out different things to try when family comes to town. What is the fun in having the same thing every thanksgiving.?

I love how simple this recipe is, and yet it's perfect for fall! The idea of adding maple syrup to vanilla frosting for an easy glaze is genius.
