This is delicious and a nice change from all the pumpkin pies. Everyone I've made it for (and who liked pumpkin) have loved it and I have been asked for the recipe by several people. It's so easy too. Thanks for sharing!

Delicious. I made it for a party and everyone loved it. I put the melted butter on and then the nuts and the nuts made the cake even better.

This was a big hit with my family. It was equally great warm as it was cold. I will definitely be making it again.

Love, love, love this recipe!!! I used Maple Pecan cake mix in place of the Yellow (yummm); and I also did not add any of the called for sugar. I found that the cake was sweet enough with the topping, and by leaving out the sugar it created better contrast between the topping and the pumpkin. TRUST ME, it tastes amazing!!!! (especially without the sugar :D)

This Cake Is WONDERFUL!!! I made as the recipe directed, the only thing I did was used a reduced sugar yellow box cake mix. It truly is out of this world crazy good! Thanks for sharing Linda!

EASY and tastes difficult. Like a pumpkin pie only faster. I can whip this up in 10 minutes or less and the house smells wonderful while baking. Excellent in the morning cold too. I don't use nuts and it still turns out well.

This is amazing and so easy to make. The two modifications I made was to use half pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon instead of all cinnamon. I used a pecan cake mix instead of yellow. I brought this to lent church service last night and everyone loved it! I did cook it about 15 min longer than the recipe said. Keep an eye on it so the nuts don't burn.

FANTASTIC!!! I could have eaten the whole cake by myself. I've always been a big pumpkin pie fan, but with a dollop of Cool Whip on top of this, I'd choose it over the pie any day.
