Who knew it could be so simple? LOL! So, for those of you who don't know, my son has celiac. That means he cannot have anything with gluten in it. The common sources of gluten are wheat, barley and rye, but that is not an all-inclusive list. I believe the DH has it as well, but I cannot control his diet as well as I can my son's. He's an adult and makes his own choices.
Anyway, two weeks ago, when son and I went to the Gluten Free (GF) store, they had samples of pumpkin cake/cupcakes. They were SOOOO good! So, this week, we picked up one bag of the mix. Today, I mixed it up with pumpkin, oil and eggs. Not all that healthy, but it was DELISH!! It made two 9-inch round cakes and I frosted them with some frosting from a can. They were soooo rich that I almost couldn't finish my piece of cake (but only almost! LOL!). The whole family had a second piece for dessert (except me). That means there is one whole cake and one piece left. I suggested that I should take the whole cake to work tomorrow. In unison, and very loudly, my family nixed that idea! I guess that means they liked it!
So, next time I go back, I'm getting a couple of those mixes. I'm definitely serving it for Thanksgiving. Next time, though, I'll make the cream cheese frosting. Much better that way.
