How to make Pumpkin Cake
Start this recipe off by getting your oven preheating to 350 degrees and greasing a 9×13 baking dish. Once you’ve got those two things prepped, we can focus on making this cake! For that, we’ll first prepare the boxed cake mix as outlined on the box- using some mixture of eggs, oil, and water likely.
With that prepped, you’re going to pour the cake batter into the baking dish, creating the first layer of our magic cake. Next, we’re going to whip up a pumpkin filling! For that, you’ll need to mix together your canned pumpkin, some eggs, evaporated milk, and some pumpkin pie spice. Mix well!
This filling is going to be our next layer. Here, you’ll want to carefully pour this pumpkin mixture over your cake batter- making sure they don’t mix. Once you get your second layer poured, let it bake for a bit. Toss the baking dish into the oven and allow it to cook for about an hour.
Once that finishes baking, you’ll want to pull it from the oven and let it cool completely before moving on to our next step. While that’s cooling, we can get our frosting top layer prepped. To do that, first, mix your pudding mix with a bit of your pumpkin pie spice. Mix your pudding mix with some milk until your pudding starts to thicken up. Once you’ve added all your milk, fold in your whipped topping. You’ll want to spread this mix over the top of your cake, ensuring you smooth and even it out before hitting with pumpkin pie spice for garnish. Just like magic, your cake is ready to serve and enjoy!
