Pumpkin Cake

In need of a fun way to make a Halloween treat? Take a look at my pumpkin cake recipe.

Cake Ingredients:

  • 1 box of white cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 small box of vanilla instant pudding
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • red and yellow food coloring

Frosting Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 cups of confectioners sugar
  • 1/3 cup of milk
  • red and yellow food coloring
  • Garnish:
  • 2 Candy Bars (Butterfingers)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixing bowl place the eggs, cake box, pudding box, oil and water. Mix everything together for about 3 minutes or until well mixed. The cake mixture will be place in a pre greased and floured bundt pan. Once the cake mixture is placed in the bundt make sure the cake mixture is evenly distributed.

Place the Bundt pan in the oven and let the cake cook for 55 minutes. Cooking time may be less check after 30 minutes and then 10 minutes after that. Place a toothpick down the sides of the cake to make sure cake is done. If the toothpick comes out clean that means the cake is ready. Once the cake is done cooking place it on a cooling rack and let cool.

For the frosting take a mixing bowl and place the room temperature butter in and with a mixer start to cream the butter. Once the butter is creamed add the vanilla and then start to slowly add the confectioner sugar. I like to add about 1 cup of sugar at a time. After all the sugar is combined with the butter and vanilla start adding the milk in slowly. You may not need to add all the milk or you may need to add more. Now that you have frosting add in the red and yellow food coloring. I used 7 red and 10 yellow drops of food coloring to make the frosting become orange. After you have completed making the frosting place the frosting in the fridge until the cake has completely cooled down.

Once the cake has cooled it is ready to be frosted. Frost the entire cake generously, leave about ΒΌ cup of frosting to put in the middle of the cake. After the cake is completely frosted take one candy bar and break into pieces and place in the middle of the cake. Then take the last candy bar and stick it in the middle of the cake whole with a little slant to it. Now you should have a cake that looks like a pumpkin! Enjoy!
