Pumpkin Angel Food Cake with Cake Mix

This is a specific mix, but it’s well marked. Seriously, this is just about everything you need……. I like to add pumpkin pie spice to this and our Instant Pot angel food cake as well but if you didn’t have any it would be yummy anyway. I have made tons of easy dump cakes but anything with pumpkin is probably my favorite.

I am a little bit addicted to that flavor and can seriously eat it year round like we do with this pumpkin pie dump cake. Ok follow along, this will be quick……

Pumpkin Angel Food Cake Weight Watchers

If you are watching your calories you can enjoy 1 slice for just 4 points. A sweet treat you don’t have to feel guilty about. Now have a large bowl to combine your pumpkin mixture and this is what ingredients you need;

  1. 1 box of angel food cake mix
  2. Pumpkin puree – I buy several of these once August hits, or I’ve made homemade pressure cooker pumpkin puree too
  3. Water – everyone has that already

How does boxed angel food cake work?

You just mix the powder in the box with water and have your mixer ready. If you are making a “regular one” do NOT grease the inside of an Angel food cake pan or it won’t rise. The reason it is so fluffy is it creeps up the inside to stick and cools upside down so it doesn’t fall, and you don’t remove it until it reaches room temperature.

In this case we use a bundt pan, don’t expect that you’ll get it out in one piece if you don’t spray the inside. I bought an Autumn bunt pan with a leaf pattern one year and love it for this one.

How to doctor up an angel food cake

We have done this best with our Chocolate angel food cake which has just 3 ingredients.

  1. Add a dash of pumpkin pie spice – Already in my pantry but if you don’t have any yet you can find it online (I prefer powdered vs. liquid)
  2. Cool whip, powdered sugar or whip cream if you want a bit on top once it’s golden brown

You’ll want to have a large serving plate handy if you want to serve it whole and slice it at the table.

Is it possible to make angel food cake without a mixer?

#1 Tip for making the best pumpkin angel food cake is to have your mixer good and ready. You MUSt whip together your water and angel food cake mix until the “batter” starts to rise and puff up kinda’ like a meringue texture would be.

I don’t know that your arm could whisk fast enough to do it without one but I imagine anything is possible. It’s needs it to be very quick to add air into the batter to make it fluffy and airy.

Can you make angel food cake in a bundt pan?

Yes in this case it is the best idea. It is denser than the regular style so if you spray it with non stick spray it will slide right out once cooled.

  1. You can use a mixer on low/medium speed until this occurs.
    1. Many times I am lazy and don’t want to try and find my mixer so I just use a spatula to whip it up using my wrist for about 2 minutes and it works just fine.
  2. Gently fold in your pumpkin puree 1/2 can at a time so the batter remains pretty fluffy, but it will deflate a bit either way.
  3. Spray the inside of your bundt pan ever so lightly just so it will slide out but not so much that the cake won’t be able to grip the sides and rise.

Remember with traditional angel food cake you don’t want to spray the sides at all.

Allow your pumpkin and angel food cake dessert to cool in your bundt pan on a cooling rack once you take it out before very gently flipping it over on to a cake plate and removing your pan.

Can you make angel food cake in a 9×13″ pan?

Technically yes, but it won’t have the same texture, it will be dense. I mean we have done this to make Pineapple Angel Food Cake this way. You could do the same with this but it will become more like a pumpkin bar in a sense.

Now that we have all the tips and tricks out of the way, you can get going with your new favorite Fall dessert! It is still nice and fluffy like an angel food cake but with a hint of pumpkin and great with a squeeze of cream cheese frosting on top!!

If you leave the frosting off it’s just 4 Weight Watchers points which is great if you’re following the program and need something sweet to tide you over. I have made other angel food cake mix recipes too that are quite delicious you can try!

Secret to making pumpkin angel food cake fluffy

Tip: prepare the angel food mix with water as directed so it “fluffs up” first, then add your can of pumpkin spiced ingredients. It will maintain that fluffy cake texture vs. making it dense. I do this with the recipes above where I add pie filling and if you don’t you’ll regret it. One thing at a time = perfection.

Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 box angel food cake mix the type with just 1 bag inside, haven't used the type with dry egg whites in a 2nd bag
  • 1 1/4 c water
  • 1 can pumpkin puree, 15 oz.
  • 1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice optional but a good addition

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a bowl add your whole box of angel food cake mix and water (if it has a separate egg white packet, add that too). I use a rubber spatula to whip it up for about 2 minutes until it is nice and fluffy and has puffed up in the bowl – you don't want to overmix it, once it becomes light and frothy, stop stirring.
  • Sprinkle in your pumpkin pie spice.
  • Add half your can of pumpkin puree and use a spatula to fold in until well combined, then add remaining half and do the same thing. Like I said, only stir enough to combine, then stop.
  • Once combined use spatula to “cut” thru the batter a few times to release any air bubbles that are trapped.
  • Very lightly spray non stick spray inside your bundt pan and pour mixture in.
  • Bake for 40 minutes or until middle of bundt cake springs back when touched gently, get it right when it starts to spring back so it maintains it’s moisture and comes out really moist but all the way cooked thru.
  • Cool completely in pan, then gently flip over on to a cake plate and it should slide out. Cut with serrated knife and serve. Can squeeze some cream cheese frosting on the top!

It is helpfully take a large scoop of the cake batter and mix it into the pumpkin instead. Then fold the mixture into the cake batter. It helps to keep it fluffier.

If you turn the cake up side down while it cools, will it stay fluffy like angel food cake???? I did not do this and it fell. But it tastes really good.

@Cherylann B, I did turn cake upside down to cool and it fell out of the pan! Yikes! Pumpkin truffle coming up next. I did spray the angel food cake pan, maybe that was my mistake.

Very good, but mine didn’t rise like a traditional angel food cake, I used an angel food cake pan… also needed a few more minutes to bake

No it won't because of the weight of the added ingredients, it will be slightly more dense.
