Pumpkin Earthquake Cake

Pumpkin Earthquake Cake

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and I just had to try it. I had some pumpkin left over from making scones and thought this would be a great dessert to use up those leftovers.

This cake comes together quickly since you start with a cake mix. Add in a cream cheese mixture and some chocolate chips and you have a mouth watering dessert.

This recipe sort of reminds me of pumpkin rolls but better. I really liked the swirl in the cream cheese mixture, since I don't like to bite into big chunks of cream cheese. Now if you like a big bite of cream cheese, then don't swirl it so much. Just do what works for you.

To make it even more decadent , I sprinkled it with powdered sugar before serving. I think powdered sugar makes everything better. This would make a wonderful Thanksgiving dessert as well.

Hubby was delighted with this recipe. He just kept saying, mmmmmm yummy!

  • 1 box (15.25 ounces) Spice Cake Mix 
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup canned 100% pure pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

Cream Cheese Filling

  • 8 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips optional

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Add the cake mix, pumpkin, eggs, water, oil, sugar, and pumpkin spice in a large mixing bowl. Mix with a hand mixer or whisk until the cake mix is incorporated. 
  • Pour the batter in the prepared pan.
  • In a separate microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter in the microwave for 30 seconds.
  • Beat the cream cheese in with the melted butter with a hand mixer.
  • Add in the powdered sugar and beat until well combined.
  • Place spoonful's of the cream cheese mixture all over the top of the cake mixture. Using a knife or skewer, gently swirl through the cream cheese.
  • Sprinkle chocolate chips on top.
  • Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until done. Insert a toothpick in the center of the cake and if it's done it will come out clean.
  • When done, allow the cake to almost completely cool. If you cut before it cools, the cake will be very soft.
