I did it. I cracked open a can of pumpkin.
Meeker was confused why I didn’t just bake a pumpkin (the one in the above picture), scrape it out, get rid of the seeds, puree it and make my own.
Um, the canned kind is easier?
Way easier. And it’s only $2.
Maybe someday when I have a couple of hours to kill, I’ll use a real pumpkin to make delicious things, but today is not that day. (And after my explanation, Meeker agreed that my $2 canned-pumpkin-plan was a better option…obviously).
Oatmeal Pumpkin Cake
- 1/2 c canned pumpkin
- 2 t maple syrup
- 2 T flax seed
- 1/4 c rolled oats
- 1 t cinnamon
Combine all ingredients and pour into a lightly oiled ramekin (or microwave safe dish). Microwave for 2-3 minutes until the result is cake-like.
Yes, I want $2 canned pumpkin cake.
