If you like earthquake cake, then you’re going to love this Pumpkin Earthquake Cake
…it’s simple and oh so delicious!


Pumpkin, cream cheese, butterscotch all whipped into an earthquake cake!



My daughter loves pumpkin and always wants me to make desserts with it.  I was recently introduced to Earthquake Cakes and they are quite scrumptious!  I made a Red Velvet one, a Chocolate Fudge one and now I came up with this one.  I love how the cream cheese is gooey and seeps into the batter while the butterscotch chips melt perfectly into it too.  Pumpkin earthquake cake is simple to make, but doesn’t skimp on taste.  If you’re looking for a quick, easy and delicious dessert to make this season then you’ll definitely want to try this one!


Ingredients are as follows:

1 box of white cake mix (you DO NOT need the ingredients on the box)

1 C butterscotch chips
