If you love pumpkin pie like I do, then you need to try this pumpkin cake! It is yummy with a creamy layer of pumpkin sitting under a layer of cake and topped off with a coating of chopped walnuts. Serve with or without a dollop of whipped cream. The best part of this dessert is the taste, hands down. But running a close second is the ease of preparation. You make this cake with a box of white cake mix and only seven other ingredients. I promise, whip this treat up and your guests will be raving!

One of the reasons this dessert is so easy is that you make it in a 13X9 baking dish. Creamy with a touch of crunch! YUM!
