Two-Ingredient Pumpkin Bread (or Cake)

I make this pumpkin bread/cake a lot because it is tasty and has a good, dense texture. Oh! And because it uses just two ingredients: a cake mix and a can of pumpkin puree.

Featured in Blog Post

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 1 big one or 2 smaller ones

Prep Time: 3 minutes   Cook Time: 50 minutes to an hour  


1 cake mix (or homemade cake mix equivalent)
15 oz. pumpkin puree

This time I used spice cake mix, but you can make it with anything. If you use chocolate, it will taste more like chocolate than pumpkin, with it will still have the nice, dense texture this recipe provides.


Get a cake mix (or use the recipe Suzanne has given us for homemade cake mix).

Add a 15 oz. can of pumpkin puree (not pie filling).

Blend until they are combined.

Pour into a greased/sprayed pan, then bake it in the oven at 350 degrees for 50 minutes to and hour.

That’s it — you have pumpkin bread. Or cake. Whatever.

Sometimes I make it in a bundt pan, but most of the time I just do it in a loaf pan.

Sometimes I use frosting, sometimes I sprinkle it with powdered sugar, and sometimes I leave it plain.

    Loved this recipe. Mine was more cake like. Is there a way to make it more bread like texture?

    I liked this recipe, I added butterscotch chips. I thought I was getting peanut butter chips when I bought them and thought what can I use these for? Perfect use for them. Delish.

      Oh, that sounds good, Laura! I’m going to have to try that next time I make it. I have those chips on hand right now, and all I’ve been doing with them is to snack out of the bag. (Shhhh — don’t tell)

    Just put mine in the oven…..little worried….batter hard to stir….so thick…..just pumpkin and cake mix…..nothing else?

      Karen….I have made this several times, and yes, it’s just cake mix and pumpkin. It turns out wonderful, especially with some cream cheese icing on top – but it’s very good without the icing too!
