The crispy, crumbly spice cake on top of this easy fall dessert recipe is the perfect compliment to the sweet pumpkin pie on the bottom. Add a dollop of whipped cream, and you’ve got some happy tummies. It certainly makes traditional pumpkin pie seem a little boring.
It’s also incredibly quick and easy to make using a boxed spice cake mix and melted butter poured over top. Yum! You won’t be disappointed.
You will start off by mixing the pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar and cinnamon together.
Pour the mixture into a greased 9×13 baking dish.
Sprinkle the dry spice cake mix over top.
Drizzle the melted butter all over.
Bake for about an hour, and you’re done!

- In my opinion, this recipe is best served once it as has chilled for a bit. The pumpkin pie mixture develops a beautiful firm texture, and the cake mix becomes crumbly and crispy.
- It's also fantastic served with vanilla ice cream!
