Pumpkin Magic Cake
I don't know what a Halloween party would be without this magic cake!  This one is simply too good not to share with you all! 
  
 
 
 
 
Ingredients:
For the Cake
  • 1 box of yellow cake mix PLUS ingredients needed to make (eggs, water, oil)
For the Pumpkin Pie
  • 1 (15oz) can Pumpkin Puree
  • ½ cup evaporated milk
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
For the Frosting
  • 1 (4 serving size) box vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 8 oz Cool Whip, thawed
Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Prepare box of cake mix according to package instructions, then pour into a lightly greased 9"x13" cake pan. DO NOT BAKE. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl whisk together the ingredients for the Pumpkin Pie (pumpkin, evaporated milk, cream, eggs, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice), until smooth. Slowly pour the pumpkin pie mixture all over the cake mix.
  4. Carefully place cake into the oven and bake for 50-60 minutes or until the center is no longer jiggly, and a toothpick inserted into cake mix comes out clean. NOTE: The cake might be slightly darker than normal, but still tastes great. Let cool to room temperature.
  5. Make the frosting: Place the vanilla pudding mix into a large bowl, add the pumpkin pie spice and pour in the cold milk. Whisk until combined and starting to thicken. Gently fold in the Cool Whip until it's completely combined. Spread on top of the cooled cake.
  6. You can serve now, or chill the cake, and serve when chilled. Either way tastes great. Enjoy!
 
 
As Halloween fast approaches... we anxiously await to go to our neighbor Mary's house for a little Halloween fun!  Every year she dresses up her puppy in various Halloween costumes!  I have to say... the hula girl was my FAV!  She also serves us one of a kind decorated cupcakes (with real homemade frosting!!), warm drinks & supper!  What more could you ask for!  Then we usually head back home and light a fire in our fire pit and have the neighbors over for another party with apps & drinks!  The kiddos walk around the circle and gather candy from all the neighbors!!!  Such a fun night!  I sure will miss it this year as I am going to Houston for Market & Festival!

Thanks Stacy! I'm a "hooker" and that pumpkin will be a nice addition to the fall decorations!
It's been a fun week! Thanks again!
Best of luck on the competition!

That is a fun pattern, will try and think on it and see if I can get something made.
Trying to catch up and seems the more I do, the more behind I get, lol.

What beautiful hooking! You are a girl of many talents, Stacy! I have always thought that it is too bad that they make Quilt Market run into Halloween. Why not just have it the week before? I don't know how you have time to do a blog party when you are getting ready for Market. Thank you!

Love the sound of your Halloween celebration. And you are giving that up for Market? Are you kidding me?!? *LOL*
Very clever little pumpkin challenge. Have to see if I can work that in between all of the gift projects to which I am currently committed.
Looks like a scrumptious recipe. I love all things pumpkin, but with the recent celiac diagnosis I am having to find new favorites. Bummer.
