Pumpkin Pecan Cake Recipe

A vanilla wafer crust surrounds the edges of this festive holiday cake. We then cover it with a cream cheese-based frosting with caramel.

For this extraordinary pumpkin pecan cake, we used a spiced cake batter for the filling that layers over a crunchy wafer crust. Once it's done, we then top it off with a vanilla cream cheese frosting and delectable caramel.

Filling/topping:

  • 2/3 cup butter (or margarine)
  • 1 3 oz cream cheese
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ lb caramels
  1. In mixing bowl beat, vanilla wafers, pecans and butter until crumbly.
  2. Press into 3 greased and floured 9 inch cake pans.
  3. In another mixing bowl beat, cake mix, pumpkin, butter and eggs for 3 minutes.
  4. Spread evenly over crust in each pan.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes (according to box directions) or until toothpick comes out clean.
