Except I made it THREE ingredient (four if you count the splash of beer I added) pumpkin cake!
The inspiration comes from these two pins:
…and this magic!
So let’s do this thang…
Because it’s SEASONAL and I LOVE IT. So I have to drink AS MUCH AS I CAN.
That’s not true.
It’s kinda true.
Grease yourself some Pyrex.
Looking at my starting materials, I was pretty dubious that I would attain a viscosity appropriate for baking.
The only real problem I had was the mix clumping together…I should have sifted that stuff…but don’t worry…I fixed it by adding a little of the aforementioned seasonal miracle that is Shipyard Pumpkinhead.
Once the beer did it’s magic (really, what can’t beer do?…Math…beer cannot do math), I spread it in the pan and swirled in some Nutella…
There are still a few little clumps…grr. arg.
But it’s OKAY EVERYONE.
I mean just look at it.
This cake is amazing. It is fluffy. It is moist. It is pumpkiny…
I love it so hard.A word about the Nutella:
It forms a magical sugary crust on top, yet retains its creamy texture underneath…there is no need to frost this bitch.
The actual recipe:
-1 box spice cake mix
-1 can pumpkin
-1/2 a jar of Nutella
Combine mix and pumpkin, put in greased pan, swirl Nutella on top…
And pop that ho in a preheated oven set at 350 F for 25-30 mins.
You’re welcome world, you are welcome.
P.S. Makes 12 servings @ 265 calories per serving…without Nutella it’s 181.67 calories per serving…put why in the name of all that is sacred would you leave out the Nutella?
