A sweet twist on the traditional pumpkin pie, this Four-Layer Pumpkin Cake is as pretty as it is yummy. This one just might become the newest family tradition for your Thanksgiving Day!


What you need:

1 pkg yellow cake mix (2 layer size)

1 can pumpkin, 15 oz, divided

½ c. milk

1/3 c. oil

4 eggs

1 ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice, divided

1 pkg Philadelphiacream cheese, softened (8 oz.)

1 c. powdered sugar

1 container of Cool Whip Whipped Topping, thawed (8 oz.)

¼ cup caramel ice cream topping

¼ c. chopped Planters pecans

Let’s make it!

HEAT oven to 350°F.

BEAT cake mix, 1 cup pumpkin, milk, oil, eggs and 1 tsp. spice in large bowl with mixer until well blended. Pour into 2 greased and floured 9-inch round pans.

BAKE 28 to 30 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 min. Remove from pans to wire racks; cool completely.

BEAT cream cheese in medium bowl with mixer until creamy. Add sugar, remaining pumpkin and spice; mix well. Gently stir in COOL WHIP. Cut each cake layer horizontally in half with serrated knife; stack on serving plate, spreading cream cheese filling between layers. (Do not frost top layer.) Drizzle with caramel topping just before serving; top with nuts. Refrigerate leftovers.

You can frost the whole cake if you like with any left over frosting
