Pumpkin Spice Poke Cake

Thursday, November 21, 2013

This cake is AH-MAZ-ING! It is heaven in your mouth. It is super moist and has great flavor. I've made this twice, and we still can't get enough of it. I gave some of this cake away to friends and they all loved it! 

The first time I made this cake Chicken Legs was out of town. He had a piece when he got home and asked what kind of cake it was. I started telling him about it. When I was done he said "Great. All I heard was that I am getting my daily dose of vegetables." Ha! I like his thinking! :)

Pumpkin Spice Poke Cake
serves 12
(Printable Recipe)

  • 1 box yellow cake mix, plus ingredients to make cake
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 1 jar caramel ice cream topping
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup Heath toffee bits
  • 1 tub (8oz) Cool Whip

Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Stir in pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice. Bake cake in a 9x13-inch pan according to direction on the package.

While cake is baking, mix condensed milk and caramel topping until well blended. When the cake is done and while it's still hot, poke holes in it with a fork, straw, or end of wooden spoon. Pour milk mixture over the cake. Allow cake to cool completely.

Sprinkle half of the Heath bits over cake. Spread Cool Whip over the top, then sprinkle the remaining Heath bits on top. Chill.

Pin It!
