yellow cake.


this is a healthier way to prepare a regular yellow cake mix. {from the deceptively delicious cookbook.}

1 {18 oz} box yellow cake mix, any brand
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1 large egg white
6 oz nonfat lemon, banana, or vanilla yogurt

preheat oven to 350. coat 9 inch cake pan with cooking spray and flour lightly {i used 2 shallow 9 inch pans to make a layer cake}. in a large mixing bowl or in the bowl of an electric mixer, combine cake mix, pumpkin, water, oil, eggs, egg white, and yogurt. beat until smooth, 1-2 minutes. pour the batter in the cake pan/s and bake until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean, about 20 minutes.

frost & serve how you like! i did mine with cream cheese frosting and strawberries.
