  • Heat oven to 375ºF.
  • Cook 1 cup sugar and 2 Tbsp. water (without stirring) in small saucepan on medium heat 5 min. or until sugar is completely dissolved and mixture is deep brown in color. Immediately pour into 12-cup fluted tube pan sprayed with cooking spray. Blend evaporated milk, cream cheese, 5 eggs, 3/4 cup pumpkin and remaining sugar in blender until smooth.
  • Beat cake mix, oil, spices, 1/2 cup of the remaining pumpkin and remaining water and eggs in large bowl with mixer until blended. Pour over caramel in pan; gently ladle evaporated milk mixture over cake batter. Cover with foil sprayed with cooking spray, sprayed side down. Place in large shallow pan. Add enough water to larger pan to come halfway up side of tube pan.
  • Bake 1-1/2 hours or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool completely. (Do not remove dessert from pan.) Refrigerate 2 hours. Loosen dessert from sides of pan with knife. Invert onto plate; gently remove pan.
  • Combine COOL WHIP and remaining pumpkin. Spoon over individual servings of dessert just before serving.

Special Equipment Needed

How to Unmold the Dessert

Place serving plate over cooled dessert in pan. Invert tube pan onto plate. Gently remove pan. Spoon any remaining caramel left in pan over dessert.


To prevent overflow, check cake pan to confirm it is the required 12-cup size. Just measure 3 qt. (12 cups) water and pour into empty pan to verify the volume before using as directed. If you only have a 10-cup fluted tube pan, reserve 2 cups cake batter before pouring remaining batter into prepared tube pan. Continue as directed. Reserved cake batter will make 9 cupcakes. Bake as directed on cake mix package.


Prepare using ground Mexican cinnamon (canela).

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I made this today. I made this today. I was not impressed. It was fairly easy (im a chef) to make but for the average everyday person might find the different cooking methods too complicated for this recipe. The cake portion was tasty, but it is from a box mix so it has that going for you. The custard portion was not so good. Maybe it is because I am not a fan of custard, but I'm very open minded about food, this just wasn't good. The caramel part of the recipe was too vague, cooking raw sugar on the stove can be hard, it can burn too quick and give an off flavor to the cake. 2 out of 5 stars, not impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made this to take to work. Made this to take to work. My coworkers and I loved it! It's kind of a cross between pumpkin cake and pumpkin pie with caramel sauce. I didn't find it difficult to make. The important thing is to keep a close eye on the caramel as it boils and take it off the heat before it gets as dark as you want it since it continues to cook until it's out of the saucepan. Otherwise have the other layers ready to go when the caramel is done and it goes together easily. Not an unreasonable amount of work for a very tasty result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this recipe for my mom to take to work. I made this recipe for my mom to take to work. She and everyone else loved it! She said people were asking for the recipe. I made some small changes to the cake mix portion, instead of oil I added 1/3cup of unsweetened cinnamon applesauce and I added 1tsp of nutmeg and 1/4tsp of ginger. I wanted it to have a bit more of a spice-cake flavor. I have made the choco-flan cake several times, and my Mom said this one is way better!! I will be making it for my Mother-in-law next.

The carmelized sugar turned into a rock in the pan when refrigerated tho some did end up on top of the custard. The custard and cake levels were very moist. I used leftover pumpkin and cream cheese in the topping but used it as a side like ice cream. My cake surely did not look like the picture. It was a lot of work for a pumpkin birthday cake.

I did not find this cake difficult at all, but I do pride myself in the fact that I'm a better than average baker. No problem with the sugar carmelization. I made it for a get-together of lady friends and everyone absolutely loved it. Especially liked the custard layer. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from absolutely wonderful! absolutely wonderful!! I used a 14 cup bunt pan, perfect fit. I did the caramel without the water, just caramelized sugar by itself in pan, poured into bunt pan and twirled around until hardened, then proceeded with other steps. Super moist cake!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely scrumious!! Made this recipe as a test before Christmas. Sugar would not caramelize for me so made it the traditional way w/o the water. Also the cake fell a little; should have baked a little longer than an hour and a half. The taste is marvelous!!
