A convenient cake mix, a can of pumpkin and a little applesauce make this extremely moist cake a delight to throw together. "With its thick cinnamon glaze, it seems anything but low-fat," says Connie Adams, Monaville, West Virginia.

Ingredients

  • 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
  • 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons fat-free milk

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, pumpkin, sugar, eggs, egg substitute, water, applesauce, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and nutmeg. Beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Pour into a 10-in. fluted tube pan coated with cooking spray.
  2. Bake at 350° for 65-75 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, vanilla, remaining cinnamon and enough milk to achieve desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cake.
