The caramel pumpkin poke cake recipe only requires 5 ingredients and the cake is made with a can of pumpkin and a box of yellow cake mix. You know me, my recipes are super hard to make! J/K.


  • 1 15.5oz box of yellow or white cake mix
  • 1 15 oz can of pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup of Smucker's Sugar-free Caramel Sauce 
  • 1 8oz container of Lite Cool Whip Topping


  1. Add the cake mix, can of pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and water to a large box and whisk to combine. Pour the batter into a 9X13 in cake pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until you can poke a hole into the cake and it comes out clean. Set aside to cool.
  2. Take the back of a wooden spoon and poke holes into the cake. Do not poke holes to the bottom of the cake or else the caramel sauce will seep to the bottom. Only go half way.
  3. Drizzle caramel sauce over the top of the holes. Spread the cool whip on top with a knife. Drizzle extra caramel sauce on top of cool whip layer. (optional)
  4. Slice cake into 24 equal pieces
