Lazy Girl's Pumpkin Cream Cake

Hey there! I'm back with another easy cake
idea based on the "one cake mix and one can of
pure pumpkin" mixture I've told you about before.

I had a hard time getting a good photo due
to lighting issues so you'll have to pretend
it looks good!

I made this cake in a 8 x 8 pan, but found
using a loaf pan really works much better
with this type of cake, so I'll stick with a loaf
pan in the future.

For this cake, use a white cake mix, stir a 15 oz can
of pure pumpkin into it. eggs, water,
or any other of the normal ingredients.

Next, pour half the cake/pumpkin mixture into a
greased loaf pan (or an 8 x 8 pan as I did here.)

Mix a stick of cream cheese with about 1/3 cup
of powered sugar and glop it on the cake mixture
in different areas of the cake. The goal is to
make little puddles of sweetened cream cheese
around the cake mixture.

The final step is to gently cover the cream cheese
with the last half of the cake mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 35 to 40 mins.
To ensure it's done enough, stick a butter knife
into the center of the cake to see if the knife
comes out clean.

My husband really loved this version of the
pumpkin/dry cake mix recipes I've been writing
about. As I said before, I thought using a loaf pan
made a much better cake and I'll stick to making
these in loaf pans in the future.

Thanks for dropping by.
