  • 12 servings



  • 1 package (18.25-oz.) yellow cake mix
  • 1 can (30-oz.) easy pumpkin pie mix, divided
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • Orange rind curls, optional


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease two 8- or 9-inch-round cake pans.
  • Beat cake mix, 1 1/2 cups pumpkin pie mix, eggs and oil in a large mixer bowl for 2 minutes. Spoon into prepared pans and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  • Whisk together evaporated milk and cornstarch in a medium, heavy-duty saucepan. Stir in remaining pumpkin pie mix and 1 tablespoon orange juice. Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute, or until thickened; remove from heat. Cover and cool to room temperature.
  • Sprinkle remaining orange juice over tops of cakes. Cut layers in half horizontally. Spread about 3/4 cup cornstarch mixture between each layer, stacking them four high. Spread top of cake with whipped topping and garnish with orange curls, if desired. Store in refrigerator.
