This cake has the perfect combination of flavours and textures. Spiced pumpkin is topped with sponge cake mix, then drizzled with melted butter and scattered with walnuts. For a perfectly even crunch topping, make sure you drizzle the butter evenly over the cake mix. Enjoy warm with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
This cake is wonderful--delicious and easy to make. I found that it tasted better, when I used two 9oz. Jiffy yellow cake mixes (without pudding in the mix) for the topping. I've made this about 5 times, and everyone loves it. - 09 Dec 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Wonderful. Used 4 eggs for a firmer texture. Spread dry spice cake mix and dropped pats of butter (about 1 1/2 cups -- we love butter) across the top. The butter melted and made a crispy topping. I skipped dinner and went straight to dessert! - 25 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
When I took this cake from the oven rich aroma of the season lured my downstairs neighbor up to my door wanting to know what I had baked. She ran downstairs to put on a fresh pot of coffee and we had two pieces of this fabulous "pie cake" while it was still warm from the oven! Yummers!!! One thing I did do was before I baked it I toasted the walnuts then I sprinkled them over the cake. I have shared this recipe with four people so far. - 01 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
