Caramel Pecan Pumpkin Cake

  Now that Fall is upon us, it is time for pumpkin everything!  Here is a recipe for a dessert everyone will love.


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup caramel sundae syrup
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


  • In large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. In another bowl, whisk together the next five ingredients; add to creamed mixture alternately with pumpkin, beating well after each addition.
  • Line a 5-qt. round slow cooker with heavy duty foil extending over sides; spray with cooking spray. Spread batter evenly into slow cooker. Cook, covered, on high, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 2 hours. To avoid scorching, rotate slow cooker insert one-half turn midway through cooking, lifting carefully with oven mitts. Turn off slow cooker; let stand, uncovered, 10 minutes. Using foil, carefully lift cake out of slow cooker and invert onto a serving plate.
  • Drizzle caramel syrup over cake; top with pecans. Serve warm.
