  • 1 can pumpkin puree 15 ounce
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk 14 ounce
  • 1 tub of frozen whipped topping 8 ounce, thawed
  • 1 cup caramel sauce ounce
  • ½ bag of toffee bits 8 ounce


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9X13 inch baking dish with non-stick spray.
  • Mix the pumpkin puree, yellow cake mix, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg in a large bowl. (Feel free to use a stand or hand mixer for this step.)
  • When the batter is fully combined and smooth, pour it into the prepared baking dish. The batter is a bit thicker consistently so use a spatula to spread it evenly.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes. A toothpick inserted should come out clean.
  • Allow the cake to cool (in the pan, on a wire rack) for 15 minutes.
  • Use the round end of a wooden spoon or spatula to poke holes about every inch on the top of the cake (you don’t need to poke all the way to the bottom).
  • Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the cake, allowing it to fill all of the holes. It will soak into the cake.
  • Place the cake in the fridge for at least ½ an hour.
  • When you remove the cake from the fridge, spread the cool whip all over the top.
  • Sprinkle the skor bits over the top. Finish off by drizzling on the caramel sauce.
  • Then place the cake back in the fridge and allow it to sit for a minimum of 3 hours. (It is best made the day ahead and left in the fridge overnight.)
