While this may not be a traditional Thanksgiving dessert, I may make it a tradition in my house. I mean there’s only so much pumpkin pie one person can eat, right?
Plus, this cake is a breeze to make because it’s made with Miss Jones Baking Company cake mix and frosting. You know me, I’m not typically a fan of cake mixes and would prefer to make things from scratch because of all the crazy weird ingredients in them that I know are not good for me.
The convenience of a boxed mix and especially the frosting can’t be denied. And now that I know about Miss Jones Baking Company has these high quality, organic mixes with ingredients that I would use if baking a cake from scratch.
It is such a win win to be able to save time by using a mix and know that it is as high quality if not more so than the ingredients I have in my pantry.
Plus, Miss Jones is running a contest right now. All you have to do is use one or more of their products to make a wonderful sweet treat and fill out the form on their website, or enter via Instagram or Facebook. You can find all the details on their website.
Because Miss Jones’ mixes are meant to be doctored up with a variety of ingredients, the sky is the limit to your creation. I made this delightful Oatmeal Raisin Snack Cake. It is super moist but has a bit of chew from all the oatmeal. And those plump, juicy raisins are bursts of flavor. For the frosting, I simply used Miss Jones Cinnamon Sugar frosting – it is so flavorful I didn’t have to add anything.
I loved expressing my creativity with Miss Jones and you will too!
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Oil and flour a 9 by 13-inch pan.
- In a large bowl, stir together applesauce, eggs, and milk. Add the cake mix, oats, raisins, and cinnamon and stir until well combined. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs. Cool completely.
- Once cake is cool, evenly spread the jar of frosting over the cake. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days.
