pumpkin-torteThis is a Pumpkin Torte. Isn’t she a beaut? 🙂 I served this to our friends we had over for dinner last Friday night. When I took it out of the fridge to serve everyone was ooing and awing! It has wow-factor written all over it and it couldn’t be easier to make!

Moist pumpkin cake layers with pumpkin whipped cream in between, then topped with loads of caramel sauce and chopped toffee. Mmmm Heaven!

I think this would be a TERRIFIC dessert to serve at Thanksgiving, instead of traditional pie. You will most definitely win the hearts of everyone who attends the feast, and rest assured this cake will go fast!

  1. 1 (regular size) package yellow cake mix
  2. 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree, divided
  3. 1/2 cup milk
  4. 4 large eggs
  5. 1/3 cup canola oil
  6. 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice, divided
  7. 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  8. 1 cup powdered sugar
  9. 1 (16 ounce) container cool whip, thawed
  10. 1/4 cup caramel sauce
  11. 1/4 cup chopped Heath toffee bits
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two 9-inch round baking pans. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, 1 cup pumpkin, milk, eggs, oil and 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice. Beat on low speed for 30 seconds, then beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Divide and pour the cake batter evenly among the two baking pans.
  3. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool cakes for 10 minutes before removing from the pans to wire racks. Cool completely.
  4. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add the powdered sugar, remaining pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice. Beat mixture until very smooth. Fold in the cool whip.
  5. Cut each cake horizontally into two layers. Place one layer of cake onto a large serving plate. Spread 1/4 of the filling evenly over the top. Repeat layers 3 more times, ending with the filling on the very top. Sprinkle the toffee bits all over the top and then drizzle with caramel sauce. Store cake in the fridge.

  1. Holly, Ive been searching for an impressive cake to serve for thanksgiving and I have found it! Thanks a million. love your blog 🙂

  2. I’ve had this recipe for over 10 years, the only difference is the toffee. It is a great recipe and I always fix it for thanksgiving.

  3. If I was making this for a party and had to transport it…what would you suggest? Is there a certain container you know of? Thanks for the help! 🙂

  4. This has become an expected Part of our THANKSGIVING meal every year! A beautiful presentation and DELICIOUS. I make the cake layers ahead and freeze them, then ice the day before. I ice it all all over and let the caramel sauce drip down the sides! Thank you!!
