This was a smash hit at my Thanksgiving dinner. The kids went wild over it. Topped with whipped cream and enjoyed every bite!

Very easy to make, and smells delicious! I haven't cut into it yet though :)

Wonderful dessert! Nobody in my family, myself included, cares much for nuts in dishes such as these; so I left the pecans out. I have given this recipe out to people every time I have made it for a gathering. My mother even had people calling her for the recipe after she took it somewhere! I'm going to start just bringing copies of it with me! I use half the butter and cake mix called for. Good pumpkin dessert!

I have to agree with using 1/2 the cake mix and 1/2 the butter. This is basically a pumpkin pie "dump" cake-- and for dump cakes I also use the 1/2 box cake mix and 1/2 cup butter. Really tasty and easy enough for my 9 year old DS to make for his contribution to Thanksgiving.

WOW!! I made this for my Thanksgiving desert, and this will be served in place of pumpkin pie from now on. It helps to reduce the cake mix and butter or margarine by half, so it's not overwhelmingly buttery or sweet, and it leaves more of a pumpkin layer instead of a bar type dessert.

I'm so sorry, but we didn't care for this. It was just okay for the first few bites, but then it started tasting way too buttery. My husband even referred to it as "that butter stuff."

I loved this too, but agree that it could use about half of the cake mix for my family's taste... a wee bit too sweet. Thanks for sharing. We will definitely make this again.

I've made this a few times now. My father will only eat pumpkin pie for dessert at every holiday until I brought this over and he tried it. Now he won't eat my pies anymore!!! This was very good! I've tired it with 1/2 the cake mix called for and with the full amount. My mom with the sweet tooth loved the full amount. I like it better with a little less, about 2/3rds. It just depends on the level of sweetness you prefer. Great recipe! Thanks for posting it!

I cannot believe I forgot to rate this last year! This is so delicious. I made this for dessert on Christmas Eve and got rave reviews. A lot of my guests did not like pumpkin pie or pumpkin. I am an avid lover and was looking for something to win them over. This did the trick! It is not too sweet and is so incredible. Thank you so much for sharing!

This was definitely a 5. What a great recipe. Made it for a party and it was a great success. I did cut the butter in half and used half of the cake as suggested by other people. It was excellent. Thanks for the recipe, it is one I will keep and make many times.
