Pumpkin Torte

Pumpkin Torte

This beautiful layered cake has a creamy filling with a mild pumpkin flavor and a little spice. It’s quick and always turns out so well. The nuts and caramel topping add a nice finishing touch.

This is a great recipe. Very light and not too sweet with a great pumpkin flavor.

I did use more pumpkin spice than what the instructions states, a little less confectioners sugar, and used no nuts. I had lots of coworkers asking where the recipe came from.

 

Ingredients:

1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)

1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin, divided

4 large eggs

1/2 cup 2% milk

1/3 cup canola oil

1-1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice, divided

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

1 cup confectioners’ sugar

1 carton (16 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed

1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping

Pecan halves, toasted

 

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Line bottoms of two greased 9-in. round baking pans with parchment paper; grease paper.
  • Combine cake mix, 1 cup pumpkin, eggs, milk, oil and 1 teaspoon pie spice; beat on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium 2 minutes. Transfer to prepared pans.
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 25-30 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks; cool completely.
  • Beat cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in confectioners’ sugar and the remaining pumpkin and pie spice until smooth. Fold in whipped topping.
  • Using a long serrated knife, cut each cake horizontally in half. Place one cake layer on a serving plate; spread with a fourth of the filling. Repeat three times. Drizzle with caramel topping; sprinkle with pecans. Store in refrigerator.
