Caramel Pumpkin Glaze Cake Recipe

Caramel Pumpkin Glaze Cake

I am so excited that Fall is just around the corner that I could not resist making a traditionally Fall cake this past week. I’ve been making this cake for quite awhile, my mom used to make it when I was younger, and now my kids love it as much as I did! I’ve seen a similar recipe floating around Pinterest lately and had originally planned to try that one but I just couldn’t bring myself to alter the original recipe. It’s just that good.


  • White cake mix
  • 1 can (15oz) Pumpkin Puree
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 t pumpkin pie spice
  • 3 oz spiced apple cider
  • 2 T caramel sauce (I use Archer Farms Target brand from the coffee/tea section)

1. Combine dry cake mix and can of pumpkin puree in large mixing bowl.
2. Beat with hand or stand mixer until well combined. Mixture will be thick.
3. Pour mixture into a greased 13×9 baking dish.
4. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
5. Combine powdered sugar, pumpkin pie spice, apple cider and caramel sauce in mixing bowl.
6. While cake is warm, use fork to poke holes across top of cake. Pour glaze mixture over top of cake and allow cake to sit for an hour to soak in glaze.

Doesn’t that look amazing? It is so moist and delicious, every single bite just melts in your mouth. My husband compared it to Pumpkin Bread but with a little extra spice. It’s like eating a slice of Fall. No really, it’s that good. I served this at our neighborhood pot luck last year and it was gone so fast that half the people didn’t even get to try it!

  • This sounds amazing. I love pumpkin!

  • This looks super yummy! Thanks for the picture so I could pin it, too.

  • Pumpkin and Carmel… deal me in!!! This looks amazing. I saw your post on Six Sisters’ Stuff. (By the way… I totally think wine is a food group too!!!!)

  • I’m going to try this – but shouldn’t even be reading about it today because I’m on the last day of that 3 day military diet – my goal is to lose 1.5 pounds in 3 days and then do it every week until I lose 20. I shouldn’t have done it Wed-Thurs-Fri but I was anxious to get started. I am cheating tonight with a small glass of wine after work though – I SO need it. TGIF! I have room for a few more calories today. I’m actually allowed one cup of ice cream for dessert. Maybe I’ll have the wine instead ๐Ÿ™‚

  • This sounds yummy. *bookmarks it* ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Looks delicious! I may have to try to make it!
