Pumpkin spice desserts are the most popular treats during the fall. This perfectly moist and delicious pumpkin spice cake is easy to make and even has a surprise treat in each slice! A special baking pan makes this a surprise cake without the extra work.
I love pumpkin desserts in the fall! Pumpkin spice anything is pretty hard to beat when the leaves are falling from the trees and pumpkins are growing all over the place. Fall is definitely my favorite time of year. Recently I was introduced to Baker’s Advantage Fillables and pretty much fell in love with the awesomeness that is these pans. These pans make it really easy to create treat-filled desserts at home. And they come in all kinds of shapes and sizes.
I was given the fluted bundt cake pan to try. It is so cool how it works! Begin by evenly pouring your cake batter into the two pans.
Let them cool completely then invert to remove the cakes. The cake with the divots is the bottom and the bundt looking cake is the top.
Then add your treats to each divot in the cake. I used indian corn for my cake.
Then frost the bottom cake to cover the candy.
Then you’re ready to frost the top and serve! Isn’t that so fun? You’ve got yourself a treat-filled and pretty cake without having to dig any holes in it. Super easy and really fun.
And to take this cake a little further into easy, I made it from a cake mix. Yep, a cake mix! This lovely isn’t homemade one tiny bit so you can make it quicker and easier. This beauty is perfect for Thanksgiving!
The creases in the pan make the cake really easy to serve. Simply cut along the crease!
Surprise Pumpkin Spice Cake
- 2 spice cake mixes
- 2 15 oz cans pumpkin puree
- 1 c. vegetable oil
- 6 eggs
- 2 cans cream cheese frosting
- 1 bag indian corn
- Prepare cake batter by combining cake mix, pumpkin puree, vegetable oil, and eggs with an electric stand or hand mixer. Mix until combined. Pour batter in pans about 2/3 full. There will be leftover batter.
- Bake cakes 28-32 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool completely then invert onto a towel or cooling rack.
- Fill each divot on the bottom cake with indian corn. Use one can of frosting to cover the candy and frost the top of the cake. Top with the other cake and frost with the other can of frosting by melting in the microwave for 30 seconds (10 seconds at a time and stirring in between each) and drizzling over the cake. Cut, serve, and enjoy!
