Changed it a little. Didn't reserve any cake for crumb top, just mixed eggs with the whole cake and the pumpkin. Love it and make it a lot. Have shared the recipe as it was very popular.

    This was absolutely the worst cake I have ever baked. I followed the directions exactly. It had very little flavor. Even my husband wouldn't eat it.

    Great cake

    Janet Ehnen from Trimble, MO

    I used pure pumpkin, added cinnamon to the batter and extra coconut in the topping. Very good. I love the toasted coconut flavor. I think my butter got too soft though for the topping. Didn't quite work right so I added more coconut.

    Soooo Good

    MELISSA FREEMAN from SMITHFIELD, NC

    This cake was wonderful. So easy to make and quick cooking. When I got through with the topping I didn't think that it would be enough, however it gives just enough crunch and sweetness and doesn't over-do it. Not only is the cake moist and delicious...it made my house smell terrific!

  •  Star(s)

    One of my mosts favorites!!

    Deborah Roberts from GAINESVILLE, FL

    Time and time again I am asked to make this cake. I did not have the pumpkin pie mix the first time I made this so I used regular canned pumpkin and added all the spices listed for pumpkin pie (doubled it) and it came out wonderfully. Usually add more coconut and nuts and a little flour to the topping to extend it. Everyone keeps coming back for more.

    Quick-Easy-Cheap

    Jenny Austin from BLOOMINGTON, IN

    I was looking for a quick and inexpensive recipe to make for a get-together at work. I omitted the coconut and added a few more nuts and some cinnamon to the topping. It was a huge hit. BTW if you don't have pumpkin pie spice, you can easily mix your own with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice--whatever you like!

    LILLIAN HUANG from VALLEY STREAM, NY

    Perfect Fall Dessert

    Debbie Krueger from Santa Ana, CA

    This is a delicious and easy-to-make cake. I added 2/3 c. chocolate chips to the topping, as another reviewer suggested, and it was really yummy. I have two family members who don't like coconut, but they both really loved this cake. Perfect dessert for the fall season.
