This cake is a winner. Instead of using a box of yellow cake and the pumpkin pie spice, I just use a box of spice cake mix--turns out great.
Excellent and easy recipe! The praline topping is what really makes this shine, although the cake itself is terrifically moist and wonderful. I doubled the topping in mine, as you suggested, poked holes in the cake with a toothpick to allow more to soak in, and the extra topping I poured into the center ring so it could absorb slowly without running off. After the topping soaked in, I spooned the remaining pecans on top. Thanks for posting!
What a wonderful recipe...it wasn't difficult and impressive when done...this is definitely a keeper...thanks for sharing.
Effort wise, this was great. Taste wise, it was okay. I'm not a fan of boxed cake mixes, but I thought the pumpkin would overpower the chemical taste. Although it didn't, I tasted the cake again today and it definitely has improved. This recipe would be great as a last minute dessert.
This cake is wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing, I have made it and brought it in to work several times and had many requests for the recipe!
Great recipe! Very, very moist and delicious. I used a maple syrup, cream cheese icing which made it even better. My friends raved and were very happy to get a piece to take home. Will make it again for family this Christmas.
Pretty good, much better after the first day. I didn't use the glaze/topping, just topped it with a vanilla butter glaze. Naxt time I'll try it according to recipe. Nanita, Thanks for posting . . . Janet
So easy and moist! I used Cream Cheese Frosting for the frosting rather than the glaze. Fantastic - a wonderful fall dessert!
I have made this cake twice in the last 3 days. I have to say that it was eaten by 30 different people and praised with the highest regards. I had to make a ton of copies of the recipe and direct as many more to this site. It is one of the best cakes I have ever made and I am not a baker. So simple and very tasty. I would give it 100 stars if I could. The only thing I did different was double the topping. Be sure and do that as it is absolutely delicious. Thank you so much Nanita for submitting this recipe. I would hug you if I could.
I just had a piece of this great cake. I love the taste of pumpking and I thought this would be a wonderful for my co-workers for breakfast. Cake was very moist and icing is decadent.
