Better Than Pumpkin Pie Cake is the perfect Thanksgiving or fall dessert. With a cake layer on the bottom, and a crunchy brown sugar topping, it is divine!
  • 1 box plain yellow cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1 can (30 oz.) pumpkin
  • 1 c. butter
  • ⅔ c. milk
  • 1 Tbsp. cinnamon
  • ½ c. brown sugar
  • 1 tub Cool Whip
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Reserve 1 cup of the cake mix. Set aside.
  2. Melt ½ c. butter and mix with remaining cake mix and 1 beaten egg. Spread in the bottom of a 9x13" greased cake pan. (I recommend using your fingers to help spread it evenly)
  3. Mix together the first measure of brown sugar, the milk, cinnamon, 3 beaten eggs, and pumpkin. Pour over cake mix layer and spread evenly.
  4. Combine the 1 c. cake mix, remaining brown sugar, and ½ c. softened butter. Crumble (or spread, depending on how softened your butter is) over the pumpkin layer and bake for 45 minutes.
  5. Once it's completely cool, spread tub of whipped cream on top.
