Grab yourself a can of pumpkin pie mix. You'll find it near the canned pie fillings at the grocery store. This version actually has spices already mixed into the puree, which adds a bit of extra flavor. If you can only find pumpkin puree, just use that and don't panic.

Toss the cake mix, pumpkin puree, 3 eggs, and a bit of butter into a bowl and stir together until smooth. Then, pour it all into a slow cooker which has been sprayed with nonstick baking spray.
