Pumpkin Torte Recipe
- 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
- 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin, divided
- 1/2 cup milk
- 4 eggs
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 1-1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice, divided
- 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1 carton (16 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
- 1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
- 1/3 cup chopped pecans, toasted
- In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, 1 cup pumpkin, milk, eggs, oil and 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Pour into two greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans.
- Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
- In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add the confectioners' sugar and remaining pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice; beat until smooth. Fold in whipped topping.
- Cut each cake horizontally into two layers. Place bottom layer on a serving plate; spread with a fourth of the filling. Repeat layers three times. Drizzle with caramel topping; sprinkle with pecans. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 10-12 servings.

"I make this every year and it's always a hit. Everyone who tastes it always asks me for the recipe. Best torte ever."
"This was a delicious cake, as well as fantastic looking. Received many compliments. Will definitely make it again."
"I used a spice cake mix. It was awesome!"
"A wonderful, easy recipe--much simpler than the "pumpkin rolls" where you have to mess with powdered sugar cloths, cake cracking, extra time, etc. It's also simple to adjust to lower-fat or no fat Cream-cheese, milk, whipped topping, and caramel sauce to suit your diet. There is no need for negative reviews of a good recipe because one doesn't have the intelligence to make those lower calorie choices on their own---or simply eat smaller portions :-) !"
"I have made this several times - it tastes fantastic and what a presentation - it really wows your company. And, the best part - it's so easy to make."
