This Slow Cooker Pumpkin Dump Cake recipe is a simple, absolutely delicious easy dessert. Just dump everything in and let your slow cooker do all the work. Your house will smell amazing while it’s cooking!



  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 15-oz cans pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 white or yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the sugar, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, vanilla and salt. Mix well and spread on the bottom of a greased slow cooker (I used my 6-quart oval shaped one).
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the cake mix and the butter. Use a fork or a pastry blender to cut the butter into the cake mix until butter is pea sized and cake mix is crumbly. Sprinkle the cake mix on top of the pumpkin puree.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Sprinkle over cake mix layer.
  4. Place a layer of paper towels or a thin dish cloth on top of your slow cooker. Place the lid over the paper towel and make sure it is secure. (This prevents condensation from dripping onto the cake so the top part crisps up.) Cover and cook on LOW for 3-4 hours or on HIGH for 90 minutes-2 hours. Remove the lid and turn to warm. Let sit on warm for 20-30 minutes and then top with vanilla ice cream or whipping cream.
