Easy Pumpkin Cake

This pumpkin cake was made with a box of white cake mix. It's moist, dense, and easy peasy. I served it with ice cream, maple syrup, and fresh grated nutmeg.
I know you can make this cake with JUST the pumpkin puree and the cake mix, but I haven't tried that. I hear it's good though.

Cake Mix Pumpkin Cake

1 box, unprepared cake mix - vanilla, chocolate, spice, whatever you'd like.
15 ounce can pumpkin puree
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
3 eggs

Mix all the ingredients well. I mixed in my stand mixer for a minute. The batter is still thick, but it does get some volume.
Pour into a greased cake pan, bake according to the directions on the back of the cake mix box.
you may need to add some cooking time, just test the cake with a toothpick.
