Simple Low-Fat Pumpkin Spice Cake with Apple Cider Glaze

Low-Fat Pumpkin Spice Cake with Apple Cider Glaze

Ah… Fall is in the air! Today I walked outside and felt the cool breeze on my face and immediately knew that it was finally time. Finally time for pumpkin! Now sure I’ve already had my #PSL from Starbucks and have been sipping on pumpkin spice coffee from my Keurig, but it’s finally cool enough to actually enjoy the slightest hint that Fall is here.

This simple and easy to make low-fat pumpkin spice cake is moist, delicious, and a crowd pleaser. Topped with a yummy apple cider glaze it’s sweetness hits my craving for dessert without making me feel as if I’ve gone overboard. Paired with a nice cup of coffee it could easily be a breakfast treat or great for a brunch. Or you can save it as the perfect Fall dessert to serve to guests.

Just like any boxed cake recipe, I’m sure that this would taste delicious with other cake flavors as well. I’m thinking Devils Food for the next one! Maybe with mini chocolate chips sprinkled in the mix? [Read more…]

Easy Black Forest Cake

Easy Black Forest Cake

Last night I invited my friends over for a My Favorite Things party. It’s an awesome excuse to get together and hang out but it’s also an awesome time to try out new recipes and share! So I decided to try my hands at a new-to-me combination… boxed cake mix and pie filling! This easy black forest cake needed 3 things… boxed Devil’s Food cake mix prepared as directed on the box, a can of cherry pie filling, and some whipped cream to top it.

Not only was this recipe easy, it was delicious too! And I’m pretty sure I’ll be trying out a few more combinations of cake and pie filling very, very soon. Spiced cake and apple pie filling anyone?

If you are heading to a get together or need a quick dessert to make that’ll have everyone asking how you did it, try this one out! And come back to let me know what everyone thought. [Read more…]
