We are BIG pumpkin pie fans so i wasn't too excited about this recipe. However my fondness for trying new dishes took over and i was very pleased with the results. It was very very easy to make and so delicious I will definitely make it many times again. Read More

I typically make things from scratch but was given a box of food that included a cake mix so I tried this recipe. We all like it a lot though I prefer pumpkin harvest bars made from scratch a bit better. Still when you're in a pinch time-wise this is a great dessert to serve! Read More

Very good nice and moist. I threw in some sliced blanched almonds instead of the walnuts and tossed in about 1/2 cup of raisins. Only used 1/2 teaspoon cloves I think a whole 1 would be overwhelming. Also don't be afraid to stir the batter fully you will have clumps of flour otherwise...Iced with Orange Cream Frosting from this site it looked like a pumpkin too. Read More

I really like this one! I actually used another recipe on this site called Mrs. Sigg's Fresh Pumpkin Pie to make the pumpkin filling and then I topped it with the cake mix according to this recipe. I had fresh pumpkin and didn't know how to use it! It turned out more delicious than words can describe! Read More
