Im a sucker for pumpkin desserts (I mean, what else is new) and because I had tried the Trader Joes Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Mix last year and was quite a fan. I like this mix because its one of the most versatile mixes because its advertised as a bread or muffin but I tend to enjoy making this as a cake.
The mix calls for eggs, oil and water to be added to it but when baking I typically try to cut corners and make it healthier. So, with this particular mix I make my pumpkin cake with sugar free apple sauce and water. I simply add 1 cup water and ½ cup unsweetened apple sauce mix it up until incorporated and add it to a Pam spritzed cake pan. They come out perfect every time! Moist and delicious. The apple sauce doesnt give it an apple flavor; its truly not noticeable when added in, but the cake does have a unique moistness to it. I cooked this up on a whim after wanting dessert that night and no one had any idea I made it with apple sauce and water. When I finally let the cat out of the bag, everyone was surprised and shocked.
What is your favorite pumpkin flavored baking item?
