Caramel Pumpkin Poke Cake

Nothing tastes more like fall than this delicious and simple, Caramel Pumpkin Poke Cake. The pumpkin spice flavor, combines with the sweet caramel and gives you a taste of the holidays. You need to try this.

My husband has to work this year so we won’t be joining my sisters and parents for Thanksgiving this year.

We are sad but we get to see them for Christmas (which is going to be AWESOME.) With that being said, there are NO RULES for our Thanksgiving dinner.

My husband doesn’t love pie so instead I’m going to be making this Caramel Pumpkin Poke Cake for our Thanksgiving Dinner. (I love it even more than pie).

If you have pie haters (or kids) coming to your Thanksgiving, I highly suggest making this. Your guests will go crazy for this recipe.

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 9 x 13 inch pan with non stick cooking spray.

Step 2: In a mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin.

Step 3: In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; add to the wet ingredients, mix throughly and pour into prepared pan.

Step 4: Bake at 350° for 30 to 35 minutes.

Step 5: Remove from oven and let it cool for about 10 minutes. Take a fork and pierce the hot cake all over.

Step 6: Pour 3/4 of the jar a caramel into the holes. Try and spread it around as evenly as possible to every hole. Let it cool completely.

Step 7: For the frosting, beat together the cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth.

Step 8: Fold in the cool whip until it is fully incorporated.

Step 9: Evenly spread over the cake once it has cooled.

Step 10: Sprinkle on chopped pecans. Drizzle a little of the leftover caramel on the top of the cake.

using fresh pumpkin?

Fresh pumpkin and canned pumpkin work a little differently.

Fifteen ounces of canned pumpkin is just shy of 2 cups (16 ounces would be 2 cups).

A 3-pound pumpkin (meant for pie) will likely give you enough puree for your recipe.

Here are some good tips for using fresh pumpkin: Pumpkin math: After cooking and draining, this is about what to expect from a typical cooking pumpkin.

2-1/2 pound pie pumpkin = 1 3/4 cups puree 3 1/2 pound pie pumpkin = 2 1/2 cups puree 6 pound carving pumpkin = 2 3/4 cups puree 5 pound round pumpkin = 3 1/3 cups puree.
