A very easy, fast pumpkin cake. It's moist and yummy. Excellent for Halloween and Thanksgiving.


For the crust

For the filling

For the topping


Preheat oven to 350° F.

To make the crust

Reserve 3/4 cup cake mix and set aside. Blend together the remaining cake mix, flour, butter or margarine, and egg or egg whites. Press into the bottom and sides of an ungreased 9x3-inch cake pan.

To make the filling

Mix ingredients together and pour over unbaked crust.

To make the topping

Mix together reserved cake mix, sugar, margarine and oats plus wheat germ (if using). If the topping is still too moist (it should easily crumble) add more oats and/or wheat germ. Sprinkle topping mixture over the top of the filling. You can also sprinkle more oats on the topping.

Bake for 55 to 60 minutes. ENJOY!

Pumpkin Cake pan size?

Hi, just want to point out that the recipe calls for a 9x3-inch pan... am I correct to assume you meant a 9 x 13-inch pan? Thought you might want to correct it....
Looks good, I'll be trying this recipe.

Pumpkin Cake Pan

I just came across this recipe and want to try next week for a group gathering. As Danene notes, the recipe calls for 9 x 3 inch cake pan. Should it be 9 x 13 or is it a 9"square pan? I see that nobody responded to Danene in over a year...I quess I'll have to try one and hope it works!

RE: Pumpkin Cake Pan


Thanks for your comment.

This recipe was submitted by a shopper. I'll try and track down some information and hopefully have a response shortly.

Thanks again,

RE: Pumpkin Cake Pan

I just consulted with one of our PCC Cooks staff. This was definitely a typo by the shopper that submitted the recipe.

You will want to use a 9 x 13 inch pan when preparing and baking this recipe.

RE:Pumpkin Cake Pan

Well, a year later (pumpkin season again) I'm looking at this recipe again and want to thank Tom M. for answering about the pan.

New question -- "large can pumpkin" I have to assume the really big like Libbey's makes, rather than typical ~15-oz. size? Cups amount would be helpful, since some (like me) might not know what the ounce amount is in one of the larger cans to try and approximate (same as two regular size?).... Thanks!

RE: Pumpkin Cake Pan

It is pumpkin season again, which is great news!!!

The Libby's large canned pumpkin is approximately 30 oz. We don't carry Libby's, we carry another brand, Farmer's Markets, which is organic.

Farmer's Markets canned pumpkin comes in a 12 oz can, with that in mind, you probably need 3 cans of pumpkin for this recipe.

Hope this helps!
