  • Grease a fluted tube pan (such as a Bundt®).

  • Place cake mix into a large mixing bowl. Beat in pumpkin, 3/4 cup brown sugar, vegetable oil, cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg with an electric mixer until cake mix is moistened, about 1 minute. Beat in eggs; continue beating batter for 2 more minutes. Pour batter into prepared tube pan.

  • Melt butter with 1/2 cup brown sugar in a saucepan over low heat until brown sugar has dissolved; stir in pecans. Spoon half the pecan mixture over the cake batter.

  • Bake cake in the preheated oven until lightly browned at the edges and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour.

  • Cool cake in pan for 15 to 20 minutes, then invert cake onto serving platter. Allow cake to cool completely before drizzling the remaining half of the pecan topping over the cake.

I only made one change--instead of vegetable oil in the cake part of this recipe I used softened butter. Halfway through baking I did cover my cake with a wedge of foil so it would not burn on top. Oh. My. Goodness. This cake is TO. DIE. FOR. I cut wedges of this cake and served it with a dollop of Cool Whip my family and I LOVE this cake. It's absolutely divine. Read More

I had some extra pumpkin to use so I figured this would be great. I didn't read the directions well and almost doubled the pumpkin needed though! I had almost all of a can of large pumpkin pie pumpkin and used that instead of the recommended amount of pumpkin. It was AMAZING. This is the best cake I have ever made. I have made it a few more times for other people and they all love it. I did have to let it cook longer though because of the extra moisture but it worked out well. This has become a staple cake recipe for me. Read More

I made this as submitted except I baked in 9x13" because I don't have a Bundt pan. I put all of the glaze topping over the top of the cake after it had cooled. Thank you for sharing Stephanie it's a keeper! Read More

This is delicious and easy. It was very moist. My family devoured it in two days. I didn't make any changes to it and it came out perfectly. What's weird is the picture next to the recipe looks like it has chocolate on top but the recipe doesn't call for it. I guess you could add chocolate chips to the brown sugar glaze that you put on the top. Read More

Oh so very yummy and moist. Served it with whipped cream and friends said it tasted just like pumpkin pie in cake form. Just be sure to let the brown sugar dissolve into the butter completely. I hurried it a little and the topping was granular but still very yummy. I will be making this again. Read More
