Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie Cake is an easy pumpkin dessert made from scratch and gluten free!
Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie Cake is my new favorite fall dessert. In fact, it is so good that it will be the pumpkin dessert I make for Thanksgiving this year. I love this!
There are many versions of pumpkin pie cake out there. Most are similar to a pumpkin dump cake, but slightly different in that it has a crust like layer on the top and bottom.
I don’t mind using an occasional cake mix, but gluten free cake mixes can be expensive and hard to find, so I like to make a homemade version when I can.
For this recipe I used the same basic idea I used for my gluten free dump cake without cake mix, but I changed it up so that it had a cake like crust both on the top and bottom.
It turned out so good! It was easy to make and my whole family loved it!
We can’t have nuts because of my daughter’s nut allergy, but if you can have nuts I think chopped pecans would be delicious added to the topping.
If you are looking for a simple gluten free holiday dessert this recipe is perfect! I think you will love it!
