Made this cake for Thanksgiving dessert. Turned out perfect and everyone loved it. Will definitely make again.

So glad you liked it!!

I like the look of your pmpcin cake it looks yummy

Just wondering if it really separates like that? What makes the pumpkin fall to the bottom?

I haven’t made this recipe yet. Came online now to print it out and saw your question. The weight (density) of the pumpkin batter is more than that of the cake. You can tell by the picture that the pumpkin pie batter is sinking. I have at least one other cake recipe that does this but it’s not pumpkin. I’m making this recipe tonight.

I wondered the same thing. The cake has to have been flipped in order for the cake to be on top and the pumpkin on bottom. Still looks good!

It doesn’t need to be flipped as the heavier layer will sink on it’s own. I make an “Impossible Cake” which is a dense chocolate cake with a flan layer. It does the same thing when it’s baked.5 stars

the weight of the pumpkin filling!! I do believe!!5 stars

I haven’t tried it yet but I will for sure. Sounds wonderful. I have only seen Whoopie pie and magic cake. I will be doing both. 5 stars

It was wonderful .don’t miss the pie

I’ve made this so many times, I know it by heart.  Tonight, I decided to switch it up and used a fudge Duncan Hines cake mix and chocolate instant pudding.  I made the pumpkin mix normally, and also didn’t add the pumpkin pie spice to the whipped topping mix.  OMG, talk about phenomenal!! It was like a super moist resee’s peanut butter cake!!  Not sure what I’ll try next, but I’m thinking something like some sort of peanut butter.  Will keep ya’ll posted.

This is a fantastic recipe!! Good bye pumpkin pie!!
