Pumpkin Cake Cheesecake

Not only do we make a delicious pumpkin cake plus a yummy pumpkin cheesecake, but we also top it off with a homemade cream cheese frosting.

This top layer is smooth, rich vanilla flavoring that really brings the whole dessert together.

The good news is that we don’t have to bake these layers separately, so the total baking time for this is just an hour. You will however, want to cool it in the fridge for a few hours before adding the frosting and serving. Make sure to plan ahead to make this dessert early or the day before you want to serve it.

Tips!

Here are a few tips for making this dessert:

  • Make sure to use a springform pan. You may be tempted to skip this but it makes baking a cheesecake so much easier! You can grab one at your local Walmart or Target.
  • Your cheesecake may bubble up and rise in the oven and that is OK. It will set as it cools.
  • It also make crack which is OK since we are adding a frosting layer at the end.
  • If the cheesecake starts to brown too quickly in the oven, you can make a foil tent to cover it by loosely adding a piece of aluminum on top.

Enjoy your fall cheesecake!

This looks delish. I will be making it for sure. But the description says it is a pumpkin cake with pumpkin cheese cake., with no pumpkin in the cheese cake. None the less as I said I WILL be making this soon. Thanks so much for sharing it!

Please ignore the cake flour question, I clearly misread it —sorry.
