Pumpkin Nut Torte

(1 Votes)
3 Hr

At Thanksgiving, everyone looks forward to having a slice of good old pumpkin pie -- but here's another delicious way to enjoy our favorite holiday dessert flavors.

What You'll Need

  • 1 (18.25-ounce) package spice cake mix, batter prepared according to package directions
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 (15-ounce) can 100% pure pumpkin (not pie filling)
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 (16-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

What to Do

  1. Add chopped walnuts to prepared batter and bake according to package directions for two 9-inch round cake pans. Allow to cool completely on wire racks.
  2. In a large bowl, combine pumpkin, confectioners' sugar, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg until thoroughly mixed. Add whipped topping and mix until well blended.
  3. Cut each cake layer in half horizontally, making a total of 4 cake layers. Place 1 cake layer on a platter and top with one quarter of the pumpkin mixture, spreading just to the edges, leaving the sides unfrosted. Repeat the layers of cake and pumpkin mixture 3 more times, ending with the pumpkin mixture.
  4. Cover loosely and chill for at least 3 hours before serving.


Top with additional chopped walnuts for that fancy finishing touch.
