Instead of individual spices I used almost two teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice. I also added a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract to the "filling". I served this warm in bowls topped with Cool Whip. Very close to Paula Deen's Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake only without the cream cheese. The "filling" is really sweet though. This was a tasty dessert that I could make with items in my pantry. I think it gets better the more it sits......it must because my husband and I keep sneaking bites. Read More

Fantastic Thanksgiving treat! Everyone loved this and it was simple to make. I used butter cake mix instead of the usual yellow cake and it was fabulous. Feeds a large group. Read More

My son LOVED this dish! However I used a Jiffy yellow cake mix the small box. I would NOT even use a whole Duncan Hines cake mix it would be TOO doughy. The Jiffy size works great. Also I had no evaporated milk so I substituted 1 cup of sweetened condensed milk and diluted it in a little bit of warm water to an excellent consistency. THIS DESSERT IS TO DIE FOR!! Read More

Quick and easy to make and can serve more than a pie. Tastes good but I think either more butter needs to be used for the topping or less cake mix because I had patches of the topping that were still dry after cooking which took away from the overall taste. Read More

Don't try to replace the cake mix with pancake mix - who'd have known unless someone tried it once? Read More
