    Can't remember where I got this but have already made it three times.

    (1) Pkg. yellow cake mix (used moist formula ones)
    (1) 15 oz. can pumpkin (not pie mix, use plain)
    Seasoning options:
    1 1/2 T. pumpkin pie spice
    or
    I used this one:
    1/4 t. ground cloves
    1/2 t. freshly grated nutmeg
    1 t. ground cinnamon

    Mix spices in pumpkin, add in cake mix. Use cupcake pan (sprayed with Pam or paper holders).
    350 for 20-25 mins. Every time I made, took full 25 mins. Very dense, very moist...can add nuts, but NO eggs, oil etc.

    So I do not use the oil or eggs as the cake mix says? I just want to be sure I read it right. Is it ok if I use fresh pumpkin cooked down? I can't stand canned pumpkin and I always cook mine from the carved pumpkins.

    Try using a box of spice cake mix instead of the yellow.

    So I used the eggs and oil and mine turned out more like the consistency pumpkin pie. They did not rise and they were a bit hallow in the middle lol They tasted really good tho.. I am gonna give it a second try.

    No added eggs etc

    Use just the mix as it comes out of the box, no additives. Ignore the recipe on the box.

    Sugar pumpkins make the best pumpkin, they are the smaller pumpkins and full of flavor, that is all I ever use. You can also use your pumpkin bread recipe and just make muffins instead of loaves.

    I have also made these twice, I used carrot cake mix and pumpkin. I added a little extra cinnamon & nutmeg. I put them in mini bundt pans, makes about 20.

    I mixed this and put in a 9x13" pan then drizzled a cream cheese over the top. Cut up and served as bars--very good! This even freezes well.
