Pumpkin Pie Dump Cake
From the recipe collection of Tara Ippolito
Pumpkin pie dump cake really is the perfect fall dessert.
It’s a delicious cross between pumpkin pie and a spiced cinnamon cake.
I’ve admitted many times that I am not a great baker. So any dessert that I make has to be easy and on a beginners level.
Dump cakes are the perfect option for someone like me. They taste like you spent all day in the kitchen, but really, they took no time at all to put together.
This recipe is great for a busy weekday dessert or it could even be served on a holiday like Thanksgiving.
Every time I make this dump cake recipe it’s a huge hit.
I really hope that you give this recipe a try. I know that you’re going to love it.

Do I have to use boxed spice cake mix?
No, you don’t have to use the spice cake mix if you don’t want to.
It can be substituted here for sure.
I think the spice cake mix is perfect for this recipe but If you’d like to use something else for whatever reason there are some options.
A white or yellow cake mix would work great here also.
I would recommend adding some cinnamon to the pumpkin mix just to give it some nice flavor that the spice cake mix would have added.
