12 Days of Christmas - Day 2

Here's a dessert that people will think you slaved over. But, it'll only take about 10 minutes prep time and about 35 minutes baking time. And now you'll use the rest of that large can of pureed pumpkin we used in yesterday's body scrub.

Pumpkin-Spice Cake
One box of Spice Cake mix
3 large eggs
The rest of the can of pumpkin (it'll be a little over a cup)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup of chocolate chips
1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice (optional)

Mix it all together with a hand mixer and put it into a greased bundt pan. It'll be a little thicker than regular cake batter. Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes or until you dip a toothpick in and it comes out clean. Take it out, let it cool on a cake plate.

For the frosting, heat a can of store-bought cream cheese frosting in a medium saucepan. Stirring constantly, heat it until it melts into a glaze. Here, you can add a Tablespoon of cinnamon if you want. Drizzle the frosting over the cake and let it ooze over the sides. Let it cool and that's it!

Enjoy! Come visit the blog tomorrow for day 3.
