So, I know there are a lot of crispy pumpkin cake recipes floating around Pinterest and the web, but I'm here to assure you of one thing. You landed on the one.
This crunchy pumpkin cake recipe is so good that my whole family can't wait to drop it all year long just to taste! It’s OUT OF THIS WORLD…
Pumpkin Crunchy Cake Recipe
This crunchy pumpkin cake recipe is one my mom has been making as part of our Thanksgiving dessert line for several years. It is still a huge success and we are all fighting for the remaining parts in the fridge for the next week!
Wondering where we got the original pumpkin crunch cake recipe?
Well, my mom also makes candles, and she caught this recipe, believe it or not, from a candle supply website.
Like I said, I have seen several versions of this recipe online, but because this one is so perfect, I never considered modifying the recipe.
This crunchy pumpkin cake starts with a crunchy layer of nuts on top, then a slightly crumbly but moist layer below (the cake mix
) and finally a thick layer of sweet and soft pumpkin on the bottom.
Also, just to be clear, it's not really very cake-like, overall. The thickest bottom layer is mostly pumpkin and is a bit pastry or pumpkin (I'm sure I used a lot of nonverbal adjectives in this article) as opposed to cake. It's incredible, however, believe me.
