Heath says it takes a few days for a recipe to show up due to approval by site administrators, plus with all the upgrades going on, I'm thinking they are pretty busy.
Here is the full cake with filling recipe for now, eventually it will show up in the recipe section.Heavenly Pumpkin Spice cake
(great for stacking and eating of course)
Was looking for a moist dense cake that wasn't a pumpkin bundt or a pumpkin bar. After some experimentation came up with this, it already includes the cake extender in the recipe. Everyone said it was heavenly!
1 package spice cake mix 18.25 oz
1 cup plain white flour
1 cup white sugar
1 4 oz instant vanilla pudding mix
1/3 teaspoon salt
1 cup canned pumpkin
8 oz sour cream
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup water
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat Oven to 325-350 degrees, grease and flour pan.
Combine all ingredients and beat on medium speed for about 6 minutes. This will make about 7.5 cups of batter. It will easily make one 9x13 sheet or 2 8" 0r 9" round cakes. Bake 35-45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
I use the wilton chart to determine long to bake this cake depending on pan size and depth plus 8-10 minutes because of the added pumpkin. I also use a cake nail(s) in the center for a level cake. My 14 inch layer (2 of the recipe above) took 65 minutes to cook.Pumpkin Filling
Mix the following for a yummy filling:
4 oz softened cream cheese, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, then mix in 1/2 cup canned pumpkin. Finally, add 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg and 1/4 tsp vanilla. Once mixed slowly add 1/2 cup whipping cream. Beat for 1-2 minutes. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours. Great to make ahead of time. Do not try to freeze to hurry things along. I did this and it was not a good idea.Bonus recipe:
OOPS CHOCOLATE PUMPKIN CAKE This cake is also delicous as a chocolate pumpkin spice cake, simply substitute a box of devil's food cake for the spice. Feel free to say OOPS when dumping it in.
I did that one accidentally but it was really good. You would think that I could see and smell the difference between chocolate and spice, but alas it as after 10pm and of course it was one of my 14" base layers. My office really enjoyed it, I made the pumpkin filling and frosted it in chocolate.
