Pumpkin Cake

Pumpkin Cake
PointsPlus Values per Serving:  3
Makes:  12 servings

Pumpkin Angel Cake
A few weeks ago I had a serious craving for strawberry short cake.  When I was little Mom always made shortcake out of an angel food cake mix but I wasn't sure how many Points+ per serving so a quick search on the internet brought me to a recipe of an angel food cake mix + 28 oz. can of crushed pineapple.  This was amazingly delicious (and tasted like summer) so I wanted to see if I could make something similar that would be fall inspired.  So, I present to you pumpkin cake.

1 Pillsbury Angel Food Cake Mix (may use others but PointsPlus value may vary)
28 oz. canned pumpkin
1 t. pumpkin pie spice

Mix well to combine and pour into a 9x13 baking pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.  The cake is very heavy (from the pumpkin) and needs to bake a long time or the center will be very soft.


  1. That looks amazing! My husband loves pumpkin, I shall have to try this.

  2. i love angel cake and pumpkin! i am definitely pinning this thank you for sharing!

  3. Thanks for sharing your recipe with me! It's on my round up post :)

  4. I make mine with spice cake mix and a can of pumpkin. Use it to make pumpkin spice muffins. Never tried with angel food before, sounds good.

    1. Abby - I've done the same thing but this is actually the same amount of WW Points for twice as big a serving. The spice cake mix always made 24 servings for me and this makes 12. I like it either way but if I get a bigger piece for the same Points+, odds are I'm going for the bigger slice!
