  1. I saw this today and knew I had to make it tonight. I used the spice cake and it turned out wonderfully! I think the 5 minute prep time is a bit of a stretch… you still have a fair amount of ingredients here as compared to other dump cakes using fruit so it does take longer than that, but the results are sooo worth it! It also really helped to mix the butter in with the cake mix. It came out with nice firm topping and the light pumpkin on the bottom. The hardest part of this recipe? Making my three guys wait for it to cool! Topped it with some whipped topping and and it was a big hit!

    1. Thanks Mary Ann for your feedback. I’ve updated the recipe prep time to reflect what you have advised. It sounds wonderful with the topped whipped cream! So glad your family all enjoyed it.
      Thanks once again for your feedback!
