Pumpkin Crunch Cake

As soon as I saw this recipe for Pumpkin Crunch Cake in a church cookbook, I knew I had to try it. I’m so pleased with how it turned out {my husband’s palate was even more impressed!} and with how easy it is to make! Wow. Now, I never said that this cake was healthy because, like any good dessert recipe, it contains a lot of sugar and butter…

  2. Oh yum!!! That looks delicious! I bet it would be great with a cream cheese icing, too!
    Jessica´s last blog post ..Its baby time!

  3. Dear Lord, thank you for this dessert. Amen.

  4. This sounds wonderful! I can not wait to get some pumpkins.

  5. Oh my word. That sounds divine!

    We’re apparently having a canned pumpkin shortage – boo hoo! I use canned pumpkin in different baked goods all of the time!

    So I just bought three pie pumpkins…and one of those will definitely go towards making this little goodie! Thanks for posting the recipe!


  6. Now if only I can get my hands on some canned pumpkin… might have to go on a hunt! :)

  7. This is one of my favorites!

  8. Make this recipe all the time in the fall. It’s one of our favorites!

  9. This stuff is AMAZING! Myra had it in the kitchen Saturday night for a Sunday afternoon fellowship meal. I come in from the Saturday evening men’s prayer meeting and think “Huh, I’ll try a small bite.” Wrong. Insert–LARGE PIECE.

  10. First time leaving a message, this cake looks absolutely mouth watering, and can only imagine the crunch and taste. Is the yellow cake mix, something like a plain cake -where I live -“Margherita ” mix!

  11. I’m craving some pumpkin right now – must be the cooler fall temperatures! I’ve got a beauty waiting just in the garden to be cooked up into this one!

  12. I love pumpkin and have so many recipes I love to use with it. This sounds great, and I’ll definitely add it to my fall list.

  13. My family loves recipes with the ingredient of pumpkin :)
    I will definitely be trying this recipe!

  14. Immediately printed that – mouth watered and I can’t wait to cook that – hmmmm maybe tonight!

    I love pumpkin bread and I love pumpkin roll. Pumpkin roll is a staple during the holidays. I make them in my largest baking sheets and cut them in smaller rolls and wrap them up for gifting during the holidays. My brother and sister go straight to the fridge after Thanksgiving dinner and check to see if their rolls are safe! Excited for fall and pumpkin.

  15. This looks and sounds wonderful. I love cakes in a 13 x 9 pan. Easier to eat! Thanks for sharing.

  16. Pumpkin is so nice this time of year. What a perfect fall dessert! Thank you for sharing it.

  17. This looks so good. Other than straight up pumpkin pie, I have an outrageously delicious choco/pumpkin swirl brownie that just rocks my world. So good! I’m definitely going to make these. They look wonderful. Thanks for sharing.


  18. Oh my . . gonna try this. Hope I don’t have any problems finding pumpkin. I hear there is a shortage this year. :(

  19. Fabulous! After I make some homemade whipped topping, I’ll have everything I need to make this. My husband loves pumpkin desserts. I have made somthing similar to this in the past. My husband and son named it “Pumpkin Crunchy Stuff.” Ha!

    Thanks for the recipe! :)

  20. You are my kinda girl! Pumpkin, a cake mix and Cool Whip!! Love it!

    Hope to see you there :)

  24. I CANNOT wait to try this recipe!!! It looks amazing!!

    I have been making lots of pumpkin muffins lately with using just a can of pumpkin, cake mix and spices. Super easy and really good!!!

  25. I made this tonight. Excellent. I used a Betty Crocker gluten free yellow cake mix and decreased the butter to half a cup. I found I was out of pecans so I just tossed on sliced almonds. Worked just fine.

  26. Oh Myra, I love this recipe. I can’t wait to try it. Thanks for the recipe and linking to TMTT. :-)

  27. i made this last night. ridiculous. SO good!
    thank you. i’m linking back to you in my post today! =)

  28. YUM! my fave are pumpkin cookies w/ cream cheese frosting!

  29. Sounds so good…Just printed the recipe and plan to make it this weekend! Thanks so much!

  30. I discovered this recipe a few weeks ago. I’ve made it 5 times! Thanks

  31. i have to admit i was skeptical when it came to the cake mix being sprinkled over the pumpkin batter – but this cake was THE BEST!! i took it into work and it was gone in no time flat! we are huge pumpkin fans here and i know i’ll be making this again and again. thanks for posting the recipe!

  32. Great recipe!!!! Very yummy! Thanks!
    Amy´s last blog post ..Pray for your husband 34

  37. I live in the south. We call this Pumpkin Pie Cake. Classic southern recipe. Just wanted to let you know. BTW I always sub evaporated milk for heavy cream and pecans for caramelized pecans.

  38. WOAH! These look incredible! I can’t wait to try this out!!! Mmm!!
    Mary @ Delightful Bitefuls´s last blog post ..Cherry Crisp

  39. I’m so distracted at work :) All I can think about is how much my family and I will enjoy this tonight when I make it!! Yum!

  40. I tried this recipe a few weeks ago and my family loved it! Will be making it again for Thanksgiving instead of the usual pumpkin pie. It is one of our new favorite recipes, yummy and so easy to make!

  41. You can omit the sugar and replace the evaporated milk with sweetened condensed milk…tastes the same! I also use pumpkin pie spice instead of just plain cinnamon.

  42. Your pumpkin crunch is amazing!!!

  43. Anyone ever try subbing the milk and sugar in this recipe for something like heavy coconut milk and xylitol or stevia? Just curious, I might try it…

  44. We love this dessert…although my recipe uses pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon. SO easy and so good…although, like you said, not healthy at all! :)

    Also, just thought you’d like to know that someone has your recipe posted here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=576688619055116&set=a.105200366203946.3114.105085702882079&type=1&theater

  45. E Mancuso says:

    Had this at a friends place. One change was made, instead of cinnamon, she used 2 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice. It was scrumptious. Thought someone who can’t have cinnamon could use this tip.

  46. Annie Garza says:

    Planning to make this for Sunday school tomorrow. However, can I make this tonight & reheat? Or should I just wait until morning to make it altogether? Thanks!
