SO HOW'D IT GO?

holy cow, this recipe is amazing! talk about the gooeyest, most moist cake ever! this is probably my new staple dessert.

i was pretty sceptical when i first started to mix the pumpkin into the mix, but once it was all mixed together, it was gooey & resembled cake batter made with milk & eggs!

i used a devil's food cake mix cause i wanted chocolate : ) i did add a few dashes of chocolate soy milk because i wanted a very gooey cake,  but i'm sure it'd be fine without it. and then i added some cinnamon and nutmeg cause it's november and i wanted autumn flavors (everyone's right, you can't taste the pumpkin at all).

oh, and at first i was a little sad because i didn't have the ingredients on hand to make an icing, but the top of the cake was brownie-like and i felt that it wasn't missing a thing. i will DEFINITELY be making this again soon to wow all doubting omnivores!

this turned out excellently.  i made a couple of substitutions; i used strawberry tofu filling instead of the pumpkin, and I used a pancake/waffle mix instead of cake, since i wanted to have this cake in the morning.  also, i used a bundt pan instead of cupcake tins.  it works best with a glaze of peach compote.

Oh. My. Gosh. These are the easiest and tastiest cupcakes/ cakes EVER!!! I make them way too often and I usually add about 3/4 of a cup of soy milk to the mixture and it comes out really smooth. I also add about a cup or so of chocolate chips (I love chocolate, can you tell?) into the mixture and the cupcakes end up coming out perfectly. Thanks so much for the wonderful recipe.

I agree with not knowing how I feel about these.
I used Devil's Food mix and while they look absolutely beautiful, they taste kinda weird.  I can't quite put my finger on it, but its a familiar taste....almost like one of those Devil's Food Snackwell cookies that my grandma like so much....
Perhaps with frosting they will be a little better.
Not like a normal cupcake, but still acceptable.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. I used yellow cake mix, a can of pumpkin, & some cinnamon applesauce with a dash of pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon. The batter tasted great but the finished product just wasn't sweet enough for me. I topped it with some vanilla frosting to satisfy my sweet tooth but it still just didn't do it for me. Others said they liked it. Maybe I'm just a sugar addict.

this was so simple and came out sooo good. my boyfriend and i made it and devoured the whole thing in less than 24 hours. we made an apple cider glaze for it too which just made it all the  more delicious.

I LOVE this recipe!  I've made these for years - WAY before becoming vegetarian.  This is an old Weight Watchers recipe.  Low fat, high fibre, low cal., tasty.  What more could you ask for!?! ;)b

:)>>> Try this now!!!  Soooo good! :)>>>

Okay, I've made this now with yellow cake mix, and this is the best cake ever! Even better than it was with chocolate! I added neon green to the frosting, my fiance said it looked like a nuclear waste cake... but it tasted delicious! The cake/cupcakes (both come out PERFECT!) turn out so light and fluffy, they're not heavy or oily or anything.  Thanks again for a great recipe!
