How to Make Pumpkin Toffee Bar Cake

This cake starts with a box of spice cake mix. You doctor up the cake mix with some pumpkin, sugar, sour cream, toffee bar bits, and spices. The homemade cream cheese frosting really makes this cake. I could just sit down with a bowl of frosting and a spoon! SO good!!! Once you add all those yummy Heath Bar bites, this is impossible to resist.

  • I used a box of spice cake mix in this recipe. You can use any flavor of cake mix you prefer. Carrot cake or butter pecan would be nice.
  • Make sure to buy a can of pureed pumpkin and NOT pumpkin pie filling for this recipe.
  • I don’t have pumpkin spice. What can I use instead? Pumpkin spice is a combination of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves.
  • Here is what I use for my homemade pumpkin spice mix: 2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp ginger 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp allspice, and 1/4 tsp cloves. Feel free to mix up the amounts according to your personal preference.
  • Can pumpkin cake be made in advance? Yes! You can make this cake in advance and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  • Can pumpkin cake be frozen? Sure! You can bake and frost the cake and freeze it for a sweet treat later. You can freeze the whole cake or cut it into individual slices.
  • How long will pumpkin cake last? This cake will keep 3 to 5 days in an air-tight container.
