Servings 12


  • 1 box Butter or Yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1/2 cup Canned pumpkin purée
  • 1 teaspoon Pumpkin pie spice


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 2 pound loaf cake baking pan.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the cream cake mix, melted butter, eggs, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin pie spice. Stir until well combined.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread it evenly.
  • Dip or grease well a 3” wide metal spatula or similar tool and insert it into the center of the pound cake before baking.  This will help the pound cake to rise evenly and give a nice crack in the center while it’s baking.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs.
  • Allow the pound cake to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then remove it from the pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Feel free to add chocolate chips, nuts, streusel or any other toppings you like to customize your pound cake even more. Enjoy!
