chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting

Cooper gives this cake a thumbs up…actually, “a thumbs up to the sky!” i guess that’s really good.

and your going to need a tall glass of milk with this cake….so good!

IMG_9694 cake

someone told me or i read it on a blog (please come forward who ever you are!!!) to mix a box of devil’s food cake and one 15 oz. can of pumpkin and voila! i think its a Weight Watchers trick….and for some crazy reason i added one egg…because to me a cake is suppose to have eggs…i might even get crazy and put in 2 eggs next time!

so that's it!  cake mix and a 15 oz. can of pumpkin…pour into any pan you want and bake according to the box.

peanut butter frosting:

  • 4 oz. of cream cheese
  • 1 cup of creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups of powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbs. milk

cream together first 3 ingredients, then add in sugar and milk.

so easy…so good!

i even had a piece for breakfast….yes i did. ;)

It was was ME! I make WW cupcakes all the time with the cake mix and can of pumpkin. Never thought of making a cake that way! Good idea! Love the thumbs up to the cute!
