Loaded Baked Potato Soup

I’ve ordered this kind of soup many times at restaurants and each time I did I thought, “I really need to make this myself!” So here it is, finally! It turned out as good as I hoped it would and if you’re a potato lover, I think you’ll enjoy it! It’s like a “comfort food soup” and it’s especially good on a cold day!

The 3 ingredients are a box of Spice cake mix, a can of pumpkin puree, and a teaspoon of vanilla, maple, or cinnamon extract. There’s another optional ingredient, confectioners’ sugar, for dusting on top, which I highly recommend because the dusting of sugar makes them look so pretty! 🙂
