Fall means apples, pumpkins, leaves changing colors and lots of butternut squash soup. I love Fall because of the cozy days it brings along.
Pumpkin and apple recipes is something I look forward to the most!
This pumpkin earthquake cake has been on my wishlist for a while. I ‘ve had regular earthquake cake before, I just tried this pumpkin version for the first time.
If this is the first time you are hearing about Earthquake cake, this means cream cheese mix swirled into cake batter. I tried this kind of cake for the first time so I didn’t give it a good swirl. I will make sure to fix that next time.
I made this one with yellow cake mix. You can bake the cake from scratch and then use cream cheese mixture and give it a good swirl. I think I am crazy about the cream cheese mixture, making it a super delicious frosting that melts in your mouth. I sprinkled it with powdered sugar. You can use your favorite topping like chocolate chips, pecans or chopped almonds.
If you have never had an earthquake cake before, you should definitely try this super moist, rich and delicious pumpkin earthquake cake that’s perfect for Fall season!
