Tempting Tuesdays ~ Pumpkin Pie Cake

So . . . I cheated a little on this last "pie" recipe. I was looking for a twist on the traditional pumpkin pie, but some recipes were way above my head or just didn't taste right. I found this recipe on One Good Thing by Jillee that accomplishes the pumpkin twist, but it actually has a cake "crust" instead of the traditional.


Cake (Bottom) Layer

1 box yellow cake mix (reserved 1 cup for topping)
8 tablespoons butter
1 egg

Pumpkin (Middle) Layer

1 large can pure pumpkin (I used a 29oz can of Libby's 100% Pure Pumpkin)

Topping (Top) Layer

3 tablespoons cold butter
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 cup reserved yellow cake mix

Mix cake layer ingredients (except 1 cup cake mix reserved for topping) until well combined then spread into prepared 9x13 pan.

Spoon pumpkin over cake layer carefully so they do not combine. Smooth out with spoon or spatula.

In a separate bowl, add 3 tablespoons of butter to 1 cup reserved yellow cake mix and 1 tablespoon cinnamon. Cut butter into dry mixture until crumbly. Sprinkle over pumpkin layer until covered.

Bake at 350 degrees for 60-70 minutes. Let cool and top with whipped cream if so desired. ENJOY.
