This cake recipe from Libby's combines pumpkin pie mix, a cake mix and eggs for the cake part and then cuts in butter, chopped nuts, coconut and and part of the cake mix for the crunch on top. I saw many variations of this recipe when I was looking online and none of them looked as good as this one. And none were as easy either. I feel Libby's works hard to highlight their products with uncomplicated, great-tasting recipes and this is another example. And believe me, they aren't paying me to say this.
Everyone liked this, at the house and at work. I was suspicious of the cake part because it has no oil, but it made a deliciously moist, but not heavy cake. The crunch part was only crunchy for the first day - such is the nature of pumpkin, but still tasted good. In my family, coconut is an acquired taste that most of us don't have, but in this recipe the coconut complements without overpowering the pumpkin.
