Nothing says Fall like the taste of pumpkin, and this Pumpkin Spice Dump Cake recipe says it all. With all the rich flavors of the season, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves, all come together in this easy to prepare dump cake. This cake is moist and creamy with a nice nutty crunch on top. I'm definitely putting this cake in the running for Thanksgiving this year.

It's so funny that I've never really been a fan of pumpkin pie but I can eat the heck out of some pumpkin cake...lol This looks really yummy but for some weird reason, the thought of just spreading the cake mix over the pumpkin mixture doesn't sit well with me at all. How does it cook if it's not incorporated into the mix...and if I were to mix it into the pumpkin mixture would it taste the same?

We've been eating one of these that I made up a couple of days ago! Soooo yummy. We call it Great Pumpkin Dessert because it tastes so good. The recipe that I have calls for the smaller can of pumpkin-the one for one pumpkin pie. Also if you don't have all the spices you substitute 4 tsp pumpkin pie spice. I also leave out the salt because there's plenty in the cake mix. I often take this recipe to potlucks and the pan usually comes home empty!

I agree with sweetrose46. In the video, it appears that it's not a 15 oz. can of pumpkin. Pretty lame to have not included the size in the recipe!

I really would like to make this yummy cake, but I need to know what size can of pumpkin to get, there are 2 sizes. One to make 1 pumpkin pie and the larger to make 2 pumpkin pies. Please let know! Thank you
