Pumpkin "Cake" Recipe

For Elle :)

Pumpkin Pie:
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin
  • A little less than 1/4 cup egg whites
  • Cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
  • Packet Splenda or 1 tsp brown sugar
  • Touch of vanilla extract
Mix all ingredients into a batter and microwave for 2-3 minutes, when top is somewhat hard looking (but it won't really be hard) and the inside is like a very moist pumpkin cake. Top with more brown sugar and/or a tiny bit of butter.

~105 calories

The chocolate version with 2-3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (I prefer the pumpkin plain though)

I play around with this recipe. I'm not even sure where I found the original. But you can experiment with it like we do with the oatmeal pancakes.
