Pumpkin Pie Cake

So for Thanksgiving, I made this cake called, "Better Than Sex Pumpkin Dessert". For the sake of avoiding that awkward explanation to your boyfriend's family why the cake is called that, let's just call it, "Pumpkin Pie Cake". You know, just for kicks.
It was called that for a certain reason of course. The reason being that it was freakin' delicious! I've been asked for the recipe for days now, so I figured I'll share it on here. 

For a person who doesn't like too much sweets, I enjoyed this dessert. Maybe it is because it is drenched in everything that can cause cavities and possibly give you diabetes.

(iPhone photos alert!)

Behold the ingredients you will need to win the hearts (and put to sleep) of many.
I used the Spice Cake mix as it was called for in the ingredients. You don't have to use this specific kind of cake mix - a regular yellow cake will do just fine. 

In goes the cake mix and pumpkin puree! If a pumpkin was a person, I would imagine his brain to look like this. I don't know why that came to my head.

Whip it! Whip it real good! The pumpkin puree substituted the egg and milk, so it wasn't called for in the recipe. But with my baking experience (all 4 of them), I have always put eggs in my batch. It was a little awkward for me to let it slide this one time. In the end, I gave in and put in at least 1 egg  just so I can sleep at night. 

Pop it in zee oven! BAM- Fresh to death!

Wait 10 minutes for it to cool down then poke holes all over it. After, you would drown this baby in condensed milk- filling up the holes. I understand it look like it needs a tetanus shot, but it doesn't matter - it's drenched in condensed milk. Enough said.

Pop it in the fridge for 30 min. so it can soak in all the glory.

Whip this cake into shape with whip cream! Then crunch some chocolate love all over this baby.

Chocolate is not enough to show some love, so pour some caramel all over it!!

Done and done! Enjoy!

Check out Key Ingredient for the recipe, or look below!

1box spice cake mix
1small can pumpkin puree
1- 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1- 8 oz. tub cool whip
½bag Heath Bits
Caramel Sundae Sauce

In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix and pumpkin puree until a smooth batter forms. Pour batter into a well greased 9x13 baking dish. Bake at 350┬║ according to the directions for a 9x13 cake on the cake mix box. Let cool for about 10 minutes after baking. Using the bottom of a wooden spoon, poke holes all over the top of the cake. Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the cake, filling the holes. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Spread the cool whip over top of cake. Sprinkle on the heath bits, and drizzle caramel over top (just to your liking). Refrigerate for 3-4 hours, or overnight (best).
