  • 1 (15.25 ounce) yellow cake mix
  • 1 (3.4 ounce) package instant butterscotch pudding mix
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • Frosting:
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the cake and pudding mix, pumpkin, oil, eggs, water and pumpkin pie spice.
  3. Stir in the butterscotch chips and pour batter into a bundt pan sprayed heavily with non-stick cooking spray.
  4. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until top is springy to the touch and a wooden toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool cake thoroughly in pan for about 90 minutes before inverting onto a plate. If desired, dust the cake with powdered sugar or top with the best brown sugar frosting.
  5. For the frosting:
  6. In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium low heat.
  7. Mix in the brown sugar and cook and stir for 2 minutes.
  8. Stir in the milk and bring to a boil, stirring the entire time.
  9. Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar.
  10. Let cool for a couple of minutes and then spread on top of a cooled cake.

    Hello ladies, I love your recipes & stories. I come from a family with 7 girls. We aren't all as creative as your group. I'm the baker & crafter, while the others persued careers. keep up the good work and I will continue to try out your fabulous ideas.
  2. I have made this cake 4 or 5 times and it is always a big hit. In fact, I took this cake to our Thanksgiving gathering and my 5 year-old niece announced " I don't like this cake; I LOVE it". I have never iced the cake; I always dust it with powdered sugar.
