Delicious Pumpkin Cake


Today’s versus was between Hermione and Dumbledore.  Each the best witch or wizard of their age!   We held 3 votes!  Hermione won the first round in a landslide. Dumbledore took round two where voting was done by comments on  Hermione won round three, the speed round.  Hermione is victorious again!!!! So in honor of Hermione we made Pumpkin Pastie Cake–a caramelized cake layer on bottom, a pumpkin pie filling and a crumb layer on top.  It’s like a cake but a pie, but a cake.

Here’s how you make it:

Bottom Layer

  • 1 boxed yellow cake mix (minus 1 cup set aside for topping
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened


  • 1 3/4 cup pumpkin
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ginger


  • 1 cup boxed yellow cake mix
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 Tbsp butter softened

Remove 1 cup of yellow cake mix.  Set aside for topping. Mix remaining cake mix with 1 egg and 1/2 cup butter. Press into 9×13 inch greased and floured pan.  Mix filling ingredients.  Pour over cake mixture.  Mix topping ingredients until you get a course crumble.  Sprinkle over pumpkin filling.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.  Cake will be golden brown on top and sides with a gooey pumpkin center.
