Pumpkin Pie Sheet Cake
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Kroger. The opinions and text are all mine.

If you follow me on any of my social media channels, you’ll know that I was in Cincinnati last week hanging out at Kroger Headquarters. {Hi friends!!} If you are not aware, I am one of their ambassadors and happily shop at one of the many Fred Meyers in Boise. {Free babysitting! Fresh and local produce! Clicklist! It’s close to my house! I could go on…}

ANYWAYS, while I was in Cincinnati, I created an amazing recipe meant for the holidays that I’m going to share with you today.

I created this fun Pumpkin Pie Sheet Cake that feeds a CROWD. This one recipe serves 24 people. Me trying to hold this cake AND photograph it was…interesting? Hilarious? Impossible? Someone came up and asked if they could hold it for me because I was clearly struggling. Ha! It was heavy because those 4 layers of goodness certainly add up.

I think I need to explain that the 4 layers are very simple and not intimidating in the least.

Layer 1 is a boxed spice cake mix that I lace with pumpkin.

Layer 2 is a creamy pumpkin filling, complete with cream cheese, instant vanilla pudding, whipped cream and more! You just whip all the ingredients together.

Layer 3 is fresh whipped cream. Easy!

Layer 4 is pre-made pie crust cut into little strips and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar.

If you read the recipe through, it can seem on the long side and you might start second guessing the purposes of life, but I promise you won’t break a sweat and anyone you feed this to will love you forever. A lot of my desserts have that effect on people. And, keep in mind that this can last for up to 3 days in the fridge as long as it’s covered with plastic wrap. A great make ahead treat for Thanksgiving or even Christmas 🙂 Yum yum!

    Yum! I’m definitely making this for Thanksgiving! Your recipes are the best!
    PS – I was super jealous you (& several others bloggers I follow) were in Cinci! We lived there for 11 years and I miss it & my friends.

    Thank You for a great recipe !
    I think I’m going to cut the pie crust into little leaves. I enjoy having a recipe that is uncomplicated, I don’t have to rush out to buy anything special and you know it’s going to smell sooo yummy baking !
    Really looking forward to baking this….

    Oh my! My daughter is going to go nuts on this cake, I think I will surprise her for Christmas! This looks incredible and easy and very very tasty!

    This sounds amazing! The large portion size is appealing because I’m a teacher, and just one pan could feed a whole class! I’ll have to make this for my little darlings this coming fall ????

    This cake is absolutely delicious. I did not have spiced cake so I used vanilla. I think vanilla was the perfect touch. This was eaten up in a day. My family couldn’t get enough.
