Ever have one of those days where you're in the mood for fall, but its the beginning of summer? Have not fear I love my fall foods too, and I'm not ashamed to make them in the summer! Yumkin Pumpkin cake is the perfect treat anytime of the year. I made this just a few days before my trip to Greece and it was a hit! Not only is Yumkin Pumpkin cake a delicious addition to your anytime recipe book, but its super easy to make too!
  • 1 Yellow Cake Mix (I used GF but you can use the regular one)
  • 3 Eggs
  • ½ Cup Coconut Oil or Butter
  • 1 Can of Pumpkin Puree (divided in half)
  • 1 Cup of Pecans, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Pumpkin Pie Spice, divided
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar, divided
  1. Preheat the oven to 350* and grease a 8x8 or 9x9 square pan.
  2. Make the box cake according to package directions or you can use my measurements for eggs and oil that are listed above. Add half of the pumpkin puree and 1 teaspoon of the pumpkin pie filling to the cake batter.
  3. In another small bowl take the remaining pumpkin puree, remaining pumpkin pie spice and ½ Cup of the brown sugar and combine until mixed through.
  4. Pour half of the cake batter into the greased 8x8 pan. Next pour the pumpkin puree mixture over the first layer smoothing with a spatula to cover the first layer evenly. Pour the remaining cake batter over the pumpkin puree layer smoothing with a spatula to cover the second layer evenly.
  5. Sprinkle the top with the chipped pecans and remaining ½ Cup of brown sugar. If you want you can also sprinkle with a bit more of the pumpkin pie spice. Bake in the oven for about 25-35 min depending on your oven.
