Moist Pumpkin Spice Cake contains only 3 ingredient items and is a tasty, and lower fat fall bundt cake. Every moist bite celebrates the flavors of fall we all have come to enjoy.
Fall is about 3 weeks away and I have already been enjoying pumpkin spice coffee, cakes, and lattes. Call me an early bird, but I am such a Fall enthusiast! I just love the crispy, chilly air, pumpkins, and the need to have my hands wrapped around a warm drink like hot apple cider.
Then come all those yummy apple and pumpkin baked goods. What I don’t love about fall is the extra 10 lbs that I feel comes with it! There are just so many delicious and easy pumpkin recipes to be made. That brings me to today’s creation which happens to be ONLY 3 Ingredient Moist Pumpkin Spice Cake.
Because, why not?
I have always love pumpkin spice cake-and even the boxed version was yummy. However, I didn’t have that or eggs on hand so I decided to follow a suggested recipe and make my own.
The final product was a short, and rather bumpy bundt cake. Next time, I will be making this recipe in a loaf cake pan, or 9×9, for presentation. This came out good, but not amazing looks wise.
However, the taste? Yeah, that was spot on good! This cake was moist, and totally perfect for a cool fall day! It takes under 30 mins from start to finish and is a real keeper, and “short cut hack” recipe.
3 Ingredient Moist Pumpkin Spice Cake Ingredients
- 1 15.5 ounce box of yellow cake mix
- 1 tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice
- (1) 15 ounce can of pureed pumpkin
How to Make 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Cake
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
Grease a loaf pan, 9×9 cake pan, or a bundt cake pan with nonstick spray.
All all the ingredients to a mixing bowl.
Mix all the above ingredients until combined. The batter will be moist, but thick
Pour batter into cake pan, and smooth it out with a rubber spatula so the batter is evenly distributed around the pan.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center of the cake. Allow this cake to fully cool before removing it from the pan and slicing.
This ONLY 3 Ingredient Moist Pumpkin Spice Cake would also go great with some cream cheese frosting. With only 3 ingredients, it is one of the easiest fall desserts that is lower fat! It is also perfect for those days when you want cake but don’t have eggs, milk, or butter in the house.

Ahh, pumpkin spice time! This looks very good and easy to make! I have also seen someone use cake mix and pumpkin mixed together to make muffins. I need to try this soon!

My sister in law would probably love this! I will have to share it with her. Thanks for posting. ~Tom
I think it LOOKS amazing and I 10000% believe that it tastes amazing! I may try this!
Would fresh pumpkin puree work instead of canned pumpkin?
I really do not know? I of course would prefer it myself, but haven’t experimented yet because its too early!
I have some left over from last season that got shoved waaayyy back in the freezer that I need to use. I’ll try it and let you know!
Why do you say it’s only three ingredients? Have you looked at how many ingredients are in Yellow Cake Mix?
