This cake is wonderful--delicious and easy to make. I found that it tasted better, when I used two 9oz. Jiffy yellow cake mixes (without pudding in the mix) for the topping. I've made this about 5 times, and everyone loves it.
Not so good! The pumpkin filling was great, but the topping was too sweet. I would have liked to have some type of bottom crust, but the topping was not at all what I was looking for. If I knew it was going to turn out like that I would have just made a pie. No one in my family liked it and I ended up throwing the entire cake (with the exception of 2 pieces) away. I was very disapointed.
Wonderful. Used 4 eggs for a firmer texture. Spread dry spice cake mix and dropped pats of butter (about 1 1/2 cups -- we love butter) across the top. The butter melted and made a crispy topping. I skipped dinner and went straight to dessert!
When I took this cake from the oven rich aroma of the season lured my downstairs neighbor up to my door wanting to know what I had baked. She ran downstairs to put on a fresh pot of coffee and we had two pieces of this fabulous "pie cake" while it was still warm from the oven! Yummers!!! One thing I did do was before I baked it I toasted the walnuts then I sprinkled them over the cake. I have shared this recipe with four people so far.
Very nice! Just a tad bit on the sweet side, so next time I'll reduce the amount of sugar I add and cut back on the cake mix topping. The pumpkin mix on the bottom was very pie-like; and the topping had a nice crunch to it. We will do this one again---only less sweet.
Delicious! I cut the sugar back to 1/2 cup and mixed in 1/2 cup flour into cake mix before pouring it over the top of pumpkin filling. Rave reviews from the ladies in our book club!
There simply is no better use for pumpkin, it is unbelieveably delicious. I'm not exaggerating.
I wasnt sure about the cake topping at first so i used only a little but it turned out to be very good. so next time i will do a thick layer of it...
