"This is a great cake to give as a gift! After a simple glaze or a quick dusting of powder sugar this cake makes a beautiful fall-time dessert. Pumpkin pie pans will be delighted! As a volunteer field editor for Taste of Home magazine I love working with recipe that combine classic flavors with quick preparation!"

"Great classic pumpkin cake can be found with simple ingredients! As other reviewer's said, highly recommend the instant pumpkin spice pudding flavor. Although it is usually only found seasonally, it is a great flavor and illiminates the need for the other spices. As a volunteer field editor for Taste of Home magazine I enjoyed recipes that use classic flavors yet easy to prepare."

"I made this 2 ways. 1 way I wish I could make year round. But alas, no one has gotten the hint that people love Pumpkin Spice anything year round. 1st way: I used Golden Butter Recipe cake mix & Pumpkin Spice Jell-O pudding. It was truly amazing. My family inhaled it in all of 2 hrs. 2nd way: I used Spice cake mix and butterscotch pudding. Hoping the spice cake would give it some oomph. It was ok, but wasn't the hit the 1st way was. I'll make it true to recipe for a 3rd try and see how it goes. I like experimenting and usually go the long way around the actual recipe. Ha! Definitely a good base recipe for anyone who loves pumpkin."

"I just made this... and it was gone so fast I'm going to make it again because we didnt get enough of it!!! I made this in a 13X9 pan and added a Cinnamon Cream Cheese frosting from another recipe!! Its also from Taste of Home. I got the idea from the wonderful chefs at my church! The recipe is called pumpkin spice cupcakes... but obviously I just used the cinnamon cream cheese frosting recipe. I have never in my life gotten so many compliments on a cake!!! I only gave it 4 stars because I think the cinnamon cream cheese frosting is a MUST!!! Sooooo Delicious!"

"I took this cake to a potluck. I drizzled the top with a quick glaze to "pretty it up". Nobody could tell it started from a mix. It baked up super moist! Because it calls for pudding, the directions should read a cake mix w/out. I may try a spice cake next time. And there WILL be a next time!!!"

"I just wanted to say that I made this recipe and it was wonderful. The only thing I did different was subsitute the yellow cake mix with a banana cake mix because that was all I had on hand. But it still came out wonderful. And it was so quick and easy to make. Thank yo so much for sharing this wonderful recipe. My son also enjoyed helping me make it and eat it too."
