Pumpkin Pie Cake

Confession:  I love the flavor of all things pumpkin, but the smear factor of pumpkin pie is too much for me to handle.

My cousin gave me this recipe many, many years ago (seriously…look what color the previously neon yellow Post-It has turned)

and it’s become a regular part of our Thanksgiving meal.

Pumpkin Pie Cake

Crust:
1 pkg yellow cake mix (reserve 1 cup)
1 egg, beaten
1/2 c butter, melted
Mix together, press in bottom of 9 X 13 greased pan. (I don’t recall ever actually greasing it, but I’m lazy like that.)

Filling:
1lb canned pumpkin
1 c sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 c milk
2 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Mix together, pour over crust.

Topping:
1 c yellow cake mix
1/2 c sugar
1/4c butter, softened
Crumb together and spread (more like sprinkle) over filling. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

  1. Yay! I have been looking for this recipe. Thanks!

  2. Yum! I can’t wait to try this and I just pinned it! Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. I think this is what my SIL made on Sunday, and it is sooooo D$#& good.

  4. You can make it even easier!! Mix up the pumpkin stuff and pour it in a sprayed 9×13 pan. sprinkle the cake mix on top (dry) you can swirl it a bit. Drizzle on a stick of melted butter, and bake. I like to sprinkle toffee bits or pecan chips on top. Same taste, but the lazy factor is increased!!

  5. This is a fav at our house too. No one is a fan of pumpkin pie, but we all LOVE this stuff!

    Oh my goodness- this sounds perfect! I have been trying to decide what to make for dessert for my Mom’s Thanksgiving meal… I’m not a pie person– too much trouble– but this sounds like even *I* could make it!! Thanks for the recipe! :-)

  7. I love me some pumpkin pie but I also really like pumpkin bars. The recipe I use is on allrecipes.com. I’ll have to try this cake recipe out too.

  8. Thanks for this recipe – I’m a HUGE fan of pumpkin! My friend and I even had a Pumpkin Tasting Party – go to my blog to check it out! Wishing you and yours a blessed Thanksgiving Day!

  9. Yum, I’m going to have to try this one out! :)

  10. Thanks for sharing–I love pumpkin recipes!

  11. Oh, I’m going to have to try this! I’m a huge fan of almost all things pumpkin, but I can’t do pumpkin pie, either!

  12. Made it, tasted it, loved it! Thanks for sharing!

  13. My SIL makes something similar. It is tasty. You are pretty tasty too.

  14. I don’t like pumpkin pie either! We have pumpkin roll…pumpkin cake with frosting rolled up in the middle. Much better! :)

  15. Yummy

  16. I made this with my husband and we loved it! Thank you for the recipe – it is a keeper!

  17. This was delicious and really easy. We enjoyed it at our Thanksgiving dessert party.

  18. Made it. Burned it (new house stove is CRAP – and not in a good way). Still ate it. Delicious. Think of you every time I make it!
