A 2-Ingredient Pumpkin Cake With Brown Sugar Glaze on a glass cake plate.

2-Ingredient Pumpkin Cake With Brown Sugar Glaze

It's true! Only 2 ingredients to make this moist and delicious pumpkin cake topped with a nutty brown sugar glaze for more pumpkin flavor.

  • Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes


Units Scale


  • 1 15.25-ounce box yellow or spice cake mix
  • 1 15-ounce can pumpkin pie filling, not pureed pumpkin


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin pie filling, not pureed pumpkin
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans



  1. Preheat oven to 350˚ and spray and flour a bundt cake pan.
  2. Place the cake mix and pie filling together in a large mixing bowl, stir with an electric mixer, scrape the sides with a spatula to make sure ingredients are combined, and then beat for 2 minutes.
  3. Spoon batter evenly into the bundt pan and bake for 45 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  4. Remove pan from oven and let rest for 10 minutes.
  5. Turn the cake pan upside down onto a cake cooling rack and let cool for about a half-hour.


  1. While baking the cake, place a small saucepan on a stovetop burner and turn heat on to medium-low heat.
  2. Melt the butter in the saucepan.
  3. Stir in the rest of the ingredients and simmer until thickened, adjusting the heat.
  4. Pour into a bowl and let cool before spooning evenly onto cooled cake.


  • You can substitute a spice cake mix for the yellow cake mix.
  • For moister results, don't overbake the cake.
  • Make sure you beat the cake batter on high speed for 2 minutes before baking to achieve the highest cake-rise results.
  • After the cake is baked and before taking it out of the pan, use a butter knife to carefully separate the cake from the pan along all sides; this will help it slide out of the pan easily without falling apart.
  • The batter can be baked into any size cake or cupcake pan then iced with your favorite frosting; try a buttercream or cream cheese frosting colored with a pumpkin orange food dye.
