About this recipe: A deliciously moist cake, which has a wonderful crunchy topping. Spiced pumpkin is topped with dry sponge cake mix, drizzled with melted butter and baked. It's the perfect dessert any time of the year. Serve with whipped cream or a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Instead of individual spices, I used almost two teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice. I also added a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract to the "filling". I served this warm in bowls topped with Cool Whip. Very close to Paula Deen's Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake only without the cream cheese. The "filling" is really sweet, though. This was a tasty dessert that I could make with items in my pantry. I think it gets better the more it sits......it must because my husband and I keep sneaking bites. - 06 Sep 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
