This cake turns out pretty dense and it's one of my staples.
1 (15 ounce) can canned pumpkin puree
2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoon ground cloves
2easpoon ground nutmeg
1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix with out pudding in the mix (white will work too!)
1 package pumpkin spice pudding (If you don't have it in your area, I'm sure you can substitute any flavor and just add more spice)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup milk (I usually eyeball this because it's essentailly only to help with the consistency of the cake)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 2 8 inch pans. Whisk together the pumpkin puree, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix, pudding and oil. Beat in the eggs, then fold in the pumpkin mixture. Stir in the vanilla. Add optional milk if thinning of batter is needed.
Bake for 30 min, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
---And for the cookies, I usually bake around 10 minutes. I believe my oven is a bit hot though. I also top them with cream cheese icing.
Btw, these are VERY cakey, and delicious!
