I jumped on the pumpkin spice wagon a few years ago. I always told myself that I hated pumpkin…yuck, gross…boy was I wrong! I adore it… it has to be one of my favorite things about Fall! I have played around with so many pumpkin recipes and this is by far my favorite. It’s not a traditional icebox cake, in the sense that you are used to … but it is served cold, has to stay in the, well, the icebox… so the name was born.
You will need:
1 white cake mix ( I use Betty Crocker®)
3 egg whites
1 1/4 cup water
1/3 cup veggie oil
1 tsp cinnamon
2 boxes of Pumpkin Spice Jello® Pudding ( instant)
3 cups cold milk
1 pint cold whipping cream
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Brown sugar and cinnamon for sprinkling
Make the cake per package directions, but add one tsp of cinnamon.
Use a 9×13 pan sprayed with flour spray.
Bake at 350° for 29-30 mins, remove from oven to a wire rack, keep in pan. ( it just cools faster off the table/counter. )
After it has cooled, using your utensil of choice, poke holes all over the cake!
In a bowl, mix the pudding mixes with 3 cups of milk, immediately pour it all over the cake and kinda help it into the holes… place in fridge for an hour.
Oh, I love PUDDING!
In a stand mixer, or with a hand held, add the cold whipping cream and begin beating on med speed, beat for 2 minutes… then add the brown sugar and cinnamon.
Like so…. then keep mixing until you get very stiff peaks, but do not over mix or you will end up with buttah!
Top your cake with the whipped cream and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Return to the icebox for another hour… it is really really reeeaally good the next day!
HAPPY FALL Y’ALL
