So I wrote on Wednesday that I was looking forward to making my favorite cake and some new healthy frosting. Well let me tell you – we just enjoyed the cake last night sans healthy frosting. The cake itself is incredibly simple and has no eggs, butter, or oil! 
Ingredients
1 box Devil’s Food cake mix 
1 can pumpkin puree 
1 bag chocolate chips 
Directions
1) Mix ingredients
2) Bake in 2 greased and floured cake pans at 350 for 25-29 minutes
3) HEAVEN.

I mentioned this was an old family recipe, and some of y’all reading this are probably thinking “Uhm no I just found that on Pintrest!” Yes, the pumpkin replacement trend has become popular, however I’ve been making this cake (shown to me by my grandmother) since before Pintrest existed; thrifty women have known of the magic of pumpkin for quite some time. The chocolate chips were my addition and I think it’s a delicious extra punch. Normally I top the cake with a homemade, but calorically sinful peanut butter frosting. I wanted to make a greek yogurt frosting, since I love all replacement options, however no matter the amount of vanilla and sugar I added to the greek yogurt I just didn’t like the frosting’s taste so I left the cake beautiful and unfrosted.
