Thanksgiving in April!!

I know that eating pumpkin flavored things seems like more of a fall thing, but let me just assure you, this little jewel will have you wanting pumpkin every day! My sister is a big fan of this WW recipe, but I was always so satisfied with the chocolate cheat cake, that I never felt like trying in. So on a whim, I bought the ingredients, and I must say, I think I am in love. This is the most moist, delicious cake I have ever eaten, dieting or not dieting! I served this with Cool Whip and it was divine! If you divide a 9x13 cake into 20 pieces, it is only 1.5 points per piece!!!! Here is the recipe:

1 box spice cake mix
15 oz pumpkin puree
1/2 cup water

Mix, spread into a 9x13 pan...batter will be thick.
Bake according to directions

If you use plain pumpkin puree it is 1.5 points
If you use pumpkin pie filling it is 3 points.


I wanted to link you to THIS website. I found some amazing recipes on here!
I wanted a way to use the other 15 oz. of pumpkin puree left over from my cake, and I found a recipe that is drumroll please....ZERO POINTS!!!

If you find the pumpkin flavor too strong, you can add a banana to the mix.
