I thought this recipe was pretty good, but I did find an error in it. The directions tell you to add an egg to the cake mix along with butter and to mix until crumbly .. well, when I added the egg - it turned gooey. I had to make a cake with that and start over (thank goodness I had another cake mix on hand), and just mix the cake mix and butter to pull the 2/3 cup out for part of the topping. I'm surprised no one else mentioned that in their review. Anyway .. everyone really liked it when I served it on Thanksgiving.
Replaced evap milk with heavy whipping cream...would use more next time because the object is to get the pumpkin layer thin and light enough to lay on top Of the cheese layer, so it doesn't sink into it. Made my own cake mix with the yellow cake mix recipe on here. Added the vanilla in that recipe, but not the egg, as reviews on here suggested. It was quite a bit too sweet and sugary for my family, so I would cut back on the amount of sugar, but other than that, was delicious. Like a pumpkin cheesecake over a sugar cookie! Yum! Thank you!
My wife needed something for her business meeting that was different. I found this recipe and it was a total smash hit. Everyone wanted the recipe I told it was family secret. Then I gave copies of it out. I think this would be good any function any time of the year. Thanks for sharing this with everyone.
Best dessert ever!!!!
I generally make pumpkin rolls, or pumpkin cheesecake, I was searching for something different. This was it !! As the last comment stated, there should not be an egg in step 1 with the batter and streusel topping. I submitted the correction hopefully they fix the recipe.
Cakes came out beautifully, I couldn't wait for it to completely cool to taste it- a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of the partially warm cake was excellent.
This turned out fantastic!! I highly recommend it warm.
Recipe was pretty easy to make. It was a huge hit this Thanksgiving...Even had requests to bring it again for next year!
These are a great crowd pleaser!!
This recipe was absolutely delicious!
Wonderful combination of a crumbly top and a smooth filling - delicious!
