Has anyone tried the recipe with the cake mix and can of pumpkin puree? I saw that it was on Rachael Ray the other day and I wondered if it was good. It seems easy enough, combine devils food boxed cake mix with puree and bake in an 8" greased cake pan. Although I am a bit of a purist when it comes to diet baking recipes and I don't really believe in them, I am willing to give this one a try.

So I tried the cake recipe and all I have to say is BLEH! I wanted it to be so much more than it was... I had such high hopes. It tasted like pumpkin baby food with chocolate in it. I baked it using a can of organic pumpkin from Trader Joes and Duncan Hines chocolate fudge cake mix. Although the texture was awesome, the flavor was not. This is what I get from trying to dietize my cake. I will go back to the old fashioned way, which is eat lettuce and have cake.
