Recipe Shout Out - Pumpkin Cake

This is another one of my mom's famous recipes....however, it originated with Mrs. Cole. Mom always makes it for the holidays! So, when I serve it to others it makes me think of my mom.

I fixed this recipe for my bunco group the other day and they LOVED it! I would say it is best served warm! Super yummy!

1 Pillsbury Yellow Cake mix
1 can Libby's Pumpkin Pie mix (1 lb. 14 oz)
1 1/2 sticks of margarine ( I use butter occasionally and it is awesome)
3 eggs
2/3 cup milk
cinnamon and nutmeg
1/2 cup sugar
Cool Whip

  1. Put cake mix in a bowl. Reserve 1 cup for topping. Mix cake mix with 1 egg and 1 stick of margarine (melted). Pat into bottom of buttered cake pan. It will have the consistency of a cookie dough.
  2. In a bowl, mix pumpkin pie mix with 2 eggs and 2/3 cup of milk. Add a little cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour on top of bottom layer.
  3. Mix 1 cup cake mix with 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon. Cut in 1/2 stick of margarine until crumbly.
  4. Sprinkle on top of cake. Bake @ 350 degrees for 45-50 min. To serve top with cool whip. I usually keep the leftovers in the fridge and just heat it up in the microwave.
