The secret to this simple recipe is using yogurt. Any kind will do, really, but the Yoplait light Pumpkin Pie added an extra bit of pumpkin-y flavor to the cake along with helping to make the cake light and moist. You can find this seasonal edition yogurt along with other flavors, such as Yoplait Greek 100 Caramel Apple, Yoplait Greek 100 Whips! Pumpkin Cheesecake, and Yoplait original Apple Crisp at Walmart.

3 Ingredient Pumpkin Cake:
1 box spice cake mix
8 oz Yoplait Light Pumpkin Pie yogurt
15 oz canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)

  2. Pour mixture into a greased 9 x 13 pan.
  3. Bake at 350ยบ for 28-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
