I found this recipe in a Midwestern cookbook. My friends and family consider it one of their favorite desserts. I like it because it's so easy to make. One delectable slice calls for another!

Meet the Cook: If a recipe has pumpkin in it, it's likely I'll enjoy it! This one resulted when I added my favorite key ingredient to an old recipe for spice cake that I had. Everyone who's tried it has enjoyed it.

"When guests serve this cake, no one ever guesses it's low fat," assures Amanda Denton of Barre, Vermont. "The lemon yogurt and pineapple add moistness missing in many reduced-fat cakes." It's scrumptious topped with caramel sauce.
"This moist cake topped with raspberry whipped cream is from a dear friend's vast recipe collection," writes Christi Ross of Guthrie, Texas. "It tastes like something Grandma would make and is pretty enough to serve at a special luncheon or shower."
When I want to serve a treat that's pretty and delicious, I make this scrumptious cake. Dotted with chocolate chips and topped with caramel icing, pecans and a chocolate drizzle, it's absolutely irresistible!

"After tasting this cake, guests always ask for a second slice...and the recipe," writes Samantha Jones from her kitchen in Morgantown, West Virginia. "Everyone is surprised when they learn this dessert is so easy to make. I often garnish servings with pear slices instead of peaches."
Fresh or frozen raspberries folded into a thick strawberry glaze turn a boxed cake mix into a festive finale to any meal. My husband isn't a chocolate fan, so this is a great substitute. I'm often asked for the recipe.
