This is tooooooooooooo DIE FOR!! My mom and I can sit down and probably eat this entire thing. It is extremely simple to make and tastes wonderful. This dessert tastes best warm. It is excellent with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Fantastic!! I only wish I had remembered to take a picture of it before we started eating it! This recipe needs a picture! I had another recipe for Pumpkin Cobbler and it was so time consuming. This one is so much better and it's so easy and quick to put together. Everyone loved it!!

So easy, my 4 year old made it! And it turned out great! We blended the cake mix and butter with a pastry tool before sprinkling it over top which made a nice even surface and consistency. We also used sugar free cake mix to cut back on the calories a tad, and no one noticed! Got rave reviews at a gathering! Will definitely be making this for the holidays! Thank you!!!

Ok, this recipe has potential. The pumpkin custard base is AWESOME. However, the topping didn't do it for me and the girls at my book club. It made the dish way too sweet, and I wish I had only used half the cake mix, and mixed the butter with the cake mix before putting it on top, like another reviewer suggested. I followed the recipe exactly (I always follow a recipe exactly once before making modifications). After baking, the cake mix on top was still dry in places, which was very unappealing, and there was too much, so it was like eating straight raw sugar and flour in some bites. I think this could be prevented by mixing the butter with the cake mix in advance. I did, however, absolutely love the pumpkin custard base, which was a lovely consistency and very good. You could probably reduce the amount of sugar in the custard base to 1/2 - 3/4 of a cup if you don't want it to be overly sweet. I'm going to make this again, but I plan to modify the way I do the topping.
