Pumpkin Torte

I got this recipe several years ago from my friend Connie at church. It's like pumpkin pie cake! It uses a cake mix so it's super fast to make.  It also has a delicious streusel type topping that reminds me of the pumpkin muffins that Costco makes around this time of year.  Give it a try!

Pumpkin Torte
1 yellow or white cake mix (divided)
1/2 C butter, melted
1 egg

1 Can Pumpkin pie mix (the kind with spices and sugar already in it)
2 eggs
2/3 C evap milk

1/4 C butter (room temp)
1 C. Cake Mix
1 T cinnamon
1/4 C sugar

Combine crust ingredients and spread evenly into bottom of a 9x13 in. baking dish. Combine filling ingredients and pour over crust. For topping- cut butter into other topping ingedients until crumbly, sprinkle over the top of pumpkin mixture. Bake for 45 min at 375 degrees. Serve warm or cold (I prefer cold) with whipped topping.


  1. My store was out of the easy pumpkin mix. So, with the 100% pumpkin, just add all the sugar, salt, and spices it calls for on the label pumpkin pie recipe? Thanks!

    1. Hey Jenn! So the last time I made this I just used the regular pumpkin too. I added all the spices it called for and only like 1/4 cup of the sugar (since there is so much sugar in the rest of the cake it still tasted sweet enough to me!) but you can play around with it and see what you think. Good luck! Glad you are making it!
