Serves: 6, Prep: 5 minutes, Cook time: 40 minutes

1 package Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Bread and Muffin Mix

2 eggs

½ cup Trader Joe’s Organic Coconut Oil

1 cup Cranberry Juice

1 Container Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter

1 8-ounce container mascarpone cheese

Honey and/or Bourbon (optional)


Preheat oven to 350F.

Lightly oil a 8 or 9 inch cake pan or spray it with baking spray. Place the pumpkin bread mix in a large bowl. In a small bowl, stir together the eggs; oil, and cranberry juice, then add this mixture to the pumpkin bread mix, stirring to combine.


Stir in dried cranberries and pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Bake until a skewer or knife blade inserted in the center comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes.

Stir together the pumpkin butter and mascarpone. Flavor with bourbon and/or sweeten with honey, if desired. Pipe or spoon a dollop of the fluffy sauce on each slice of cake to serve.

“Both the pumpkin butter and pumpkin bread mix are seasonal, so be sure to hoard enough to last you through the year!”
