To make an entire cake from scratch, or to make no cake at all — that used to be the question. These days, top dessert scientists have been working hard to find an easy way to have your cake, and not really have to do anything to eat it, too.
This absurdly simple and delicious microwave pumpkin cake recipe is definitely one of the most groundbreaking finds of all time.
It's as easy as this:
Pour three tablespoons of cake mix, one tablespoon of pumpkin puree, a half teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice, and one tablespoon of water into a greased microwave-safe bowl.
Mix it up with a fork until most of the lumps are gone.
Pop it in the microwave for 60 seconds.
Top it off with whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce, or toasted pecans.
Or all of the above.
You're just 60 seconds away from the perfect autumn snack!
You can also freeze one-tablespoon portions of the pumpkin puree in an ice cube tray to defrost at a moment's notice.

This really is the perfect crime. It's quick, painless, and super satisfying. And once you're all done, there's hardly any cleanup! It doesn't get better than that.
