Pumpkin Upside Down Cake

Leigh Culver


It's June 2013 as I post this. As I went through my recipe box though I found this and thought there really is no better time for any recipe. I got this from a dear friend over 15 years ago. I have made it many times but like my friend, I have NEVER flipped it over. We have just dug it out of the pan!

How to Make Pumpkin Upside Down Cake


  1. Set oven to 350*,

    Mix filling and pour into a 9x13 pan (I use glass).
  2. Sprinkle dry cake mix over all and drizzle butter over the cake mix.
  3. Bake at 350* for 1 hour.

    You should be able to flip it out of the dish but I never do. It's so pudding like that I just leave it in the pan and we dish it out. It's wonderful. I hope you like it.
