I have made these many times and every time I am asked for the recipe and how it’s done because it’s just so delicious! This Pumpkin Delight Dessert uses a cake mix and for crust and topping and sandwiched in between is a perfectly spiced layer of pumpkin. Adding pecans to the buttery topping brings this dessert over the top!
Whenever fall comes around I cannot help but look for new recipes for pumpkin that I can try and make for my family!
I am so glad I found this delicious and truly heavenly pumpkin recipe. It is so delicious that I have made it about 4 times just this month alone.
Not only that, I have also served these many times already and every time I get asked about the recipe and how it comes out so yummy!
What I love about this is that it’s so easy to make and looks like you made a big fuss but actually didn’t!

- 1 box yellow cake mix, (1 cup reserved)
- 1 stick butter, melted
- 1 egg
- 1 29 oz canned pumpkin, large
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 2/3 cup milk
- 3 teaspoons pumpkin spice
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup reserved yellow cake mix
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 stick butter, cold
- 1 cup walnuts or pecans, finely chopped
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Reserve 1 cup of the yellow cake mix. Set aside. Mix the remaining cake mix with the melted butter and egg. It would be sticky and thick in consistency. Pat the batter into a greased 9 x 13 baking dish.
Mix together the pumpkin, eggs, sugar, milk, pumpkin spice and salt.
Beat well until smooth and pour onto the crust.
Mix the remaining yellow cake mix with the sugar. Cut the butter into the mix until it resembles coarse crumbs or looks crumbly. Add in the nuts. Sprinkle the topping all over the batter. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until the pumpkin is set. Cool completely and slice to serve.
