So good! everyone loved it. I used light cream cheese and whipped topping and worked great. Don't add the topping until ready to serve.
I made this for Thanksgiving dinner last night. Very easy to make, impressive looking and delicious. I was actually coming to post it myself! My family all agreed the was a $7 per slice restaurant quality dessert. I made it exactly as directed except I didn't have Pumpkin Pie Spice, so I used 1 tsp fresh ginger, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 1/8 tsp each of allspice and cloves and 3/4 tsp of cinnamon. For the caramel topping, I squirted a bunch in the middle, then went over it in a sun ray design which created a great drizzle effect over the sides and topped with pecan pieces.
I made this to rave reviews for a potluck. I used lowfat cream cheese and 2 eggs plus 1/2 cup egg beaters. I skipped the pecans and made 3 8-inch layers instead of 2 9-inch.
Fabulous pumpkin cake, more than a five star recipe, easy to make and so delicious! thanks for posting...Kittencal:)
This is a great cake! I made this for my wedding rehearsal dinner a couple months ago. Thankfully, my matron of honor snagged me a piece before it was all gone. It went so fast! This is very easy to make and looks so elegant if you drizzle only about a half an inch border around the cake and allow the caramel to drip down the sides. After that, I drizzled a little across the top of the cake, but it ruined the effect. Such a wonderful dessert!
