What To Eat Wednesday- Pumpkin Cake

Lisa (my cute neighbor) brought this over for the kids the night I was in the hospital with Jay. She had said that it might be nice to have with breakfast. I went home the next morning and everyone was doing so well on time. And being so happy and kind and helpful. I joked that they were doing so well because they knew they were getting cake for breakfast.
We all loved it. Another one to add to my favorite fall recipes.

Pumpkin Cake

1 box yellow cake mix (duncan hines)
1/2 Cup sugar
1 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup water
1 cup canned pumpkin

I just can't make a recipe without seeing a picture first! : ) I thought Jay got you a new camera?? Or was the cake so delicious that it got eaten too fast?

I know,I know about the pictures. I need them too.
But you will just have to trust me on these recipes this month. I did not have time or the thought to take photos of the food that has been brought in. I don't know why, since I take photos of everything else!
Yes the cake really is that yummy. Rarely do I want to eat cake without frosting. But this stands on its own!
