Heavenly Pumpkin Cake

Dear Reader, I am sorry I have been missing a bit this week. 

I have missed you guys so much that I decided to experiment on a new cake for you in the kitchen.

It starts out very simple... with an angel food cake mix (get it--heavenly ;))

Take the mix and add 1 1/4 cup cold water.

Mix 'er up.

Add about 1 T cinnamon

Add 15 oz of pumpkin and mix it up

Pour into a 9 x13 and bake at 325 degrees for 30-40 minutes-- until the cake passes the tooth pick test.

Cool in the pan on a cooling rack.

Meanwhile whip up some of the most amazing icing in the world... I used the same heavenly icing that I made for my Pioneerella Whoopie Cookie Pies

The perfect combination of the denseness of a pumpkin bread with the lightness of the angel food. 

And the icing... well we have talked about that... 

Must. Try. Now.

13 GOODe Thoughts:

This looks and sounds yummy! I already know I can do the icing...so I might have to give this one a try!

Glad you are back! I am going to try this, but first I am going to try the Whoopie cookie pies. I have everything to make them, just have to find the time. Did you get my email? Just checking. Have a good day.

Ok, as soon as I can find the Angel food cakes on sale, I am so making this!! I love anything angel food and anything pumpkin. I have a feeling this is going to taste as good as it looks!!

YUM!!! This cake looks sooo good! I've decided not to start my 'sugar free' diet today. Thank you for inspiring that decision! :-)

It sounds great. I have it printed and I will try it in the next few days I love pumpkin Thank You

LittleD loves pumpkin--I'll have to give her this recipe to make for us.
Tried to vote on your Cheerios contest, but I couldn't get the LIKE button to work. I think it's this stupid new-to-me laptop, though.

Looks wonderful. I must be hungry. First I wanted Jenn's applesauce bars; now I want a piece of that pumpkin cake. I do love pumpkin!

I am SO happy to find your blog today!!!! :-) First off, I LOVED the title because I'm from the south (TN), and I say "goodness, gracious" at least (literally a minimum) of 20 times a day! In fact, when I saw the cake photos, I was thinking "Goodness, gracioius, that looks good!" Then I laughed when I realized it!!! :-) LOL


Didn't mean to write you a book, but I hope you have a great day!


Oh you are too sweet. Thank you so much! I am glad you found me too! Can't wait to get to know you.

I think I will have to try this very soon . We've a couple cans of pumpkin and it looks delicious 

Can not wait to try the angel food pumpkin cake.. but just one question I know you do not grease your pan for angel food cakes but with the pumpkin being added did not know if I needed to grease pan...

You shouldn't need to. Enjoy!
