Pumpkin Magic Cake

I made this for the Fall Game Night for the students and it was a hit.

An easy way to make a pumpkin pie - as a cake crust that is very cool looking!

Preheat oven to 350

Step One - Cake layer
1 box of yellow cake mix PLUS ingredients needed to make (eggs, water, oil)
Follow the directions on the box, put the batter in a 9x13 pan.

Step Two - Pumpkin layer
1 (15oz) can Pumpkin Puree
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
3 eggs
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Combine ingredients (or just follow the directions on the can for pie) and pour carefully on top of the batter already in the pan.

Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes.  Test with a toothpick, should come out clean when done.  The cake may look darker than usual.

Set on counter to cool, then put in the frig.

Step Three - Frosting Layer a
1 c heavy cream
whip until peaks form

Step Four - Frosting Layer b
1 (4 serving size) box vanilla instant pudding mix
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 cup cold milk
Combine until the pudding starts to get firm, then fold into the whipped cream
Spread on the top of the cooled cake, serve or refrigerate then serve.
