Pumpkin Upside Down Cake Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 3)
Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
I gave this a try for Thanksgiving but everyone was hesitant to try it and instead went for traditional pumpkin pie. The pies were inedible due to the cook swapping sugar for salt by mistake, so everyone reluctantly tried the cake. The samples soon turned into huge slices and it was all gone in a flash. Not only did it save the day but everyone loved it even more than the pie. I got numerous requests for the recipe and was told it was now my dish to bring every year. Absolutely scrumptious.

I have made this recipe a couple of times. The first time I made it as directed, however, there was too much butter making it too rich for some. The 2nd and 3rd times I made this, I cut the amount of butter in half, reduced the pumpkin pie spice by approximately 1/3rd and added a teaspoon of vanilla extract. I even added some chopped pecans/walnuts to the cake mix the 3rd time. With and without nuts were a hit with both coworkers and family. I'll be making this for our Thanksgiving gathering this year.

I made this as a last minute favor for my parents' church group. EVERYONE loved it! I tested it (for quality assurance, of course) while still slightly warm, and it was good, but is much better when completely chilled. It did have an obvious "not made from scratch" taste, but I am the only one who seemed to be put off by that. We served it with ice cream instead of whipped cream.

I have made this recipe at Thanksgiving and Christmas since the mid 80's instead of pumpkin pie. It is fantastic and you get a lot of pumpkin taste for the effort. I love to add broken nut meats especially walnuts. I hope others will try this recipe too. Thanks for sharing it.
