Fall is almost here!! It’s time to get excited about the crisp autumn air, sweatshirts, and of course, yummy pumpkin spice flavored everything!
It’s all about Pumpkin Spice now! We have a BUNCH of great recipe roundups featuring Pumpkin Spice.
This cake is about the pumpkin- but, we are adding 2 of my favorite ingredients: Caramel and Cream Cheese!
1 15.25 oz box Spice cake mix
1 C pumpkin puree, 15 oz can
1 C water
3 large eggs
1/2 C canola oil
1/2 C plus 1/4 C caramel sauce
1 package cream cheese, softened
2 TBSP whole milk
1 C powdered sugar
1 – 8oz container of cool whip
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9×13 baking dish with pam baking spray
Using a standing mixer, mix together the cake mix, pumpkin, water, eggs, and oil until combined
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean
Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes
Poke holes into the cake with the end of a wooden spoon
Heat up a 1/2 cup of caramel sauce for about 20-30 seconds.
Pour the warm caramel sauce into the holes in the cake
Allow the cake to cool completely.
Once the cake is cooled, make the whipped topping
Using a hand beater, beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and milk just until it is smooth and creamy.
Fold in the whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture.
Spread the frosting over the top of the cake. Making sure to gently press the frosting into the holes of the cake.
Using the remaining caramel sauce, pour the sauce into a squeeze bottle and pipe lines going vertical across the cake
Using a toothpick drag lines through the sauce to create a zig zag effect
Cut out a slice and enjoy!
