Piecaken

Ok here is an honest and simple question for you, have you ever had piecaken? Or here is another question, have you ever heard of piecaken? Well if the answer to either of those questions is no, then you are seriously missing out.

We’ve been making piecaken recipes for years and we cant get enough. So what is a piecaken you may ask, well a piecaken is a whole pie that is baked inside of a cake. Kind of like the turducken, but for the dessert world.

Last year I shared with you my Chocolate Pecan Piecaken recipe which is a pecan pie that is baked inside a moist chocolate cake and topped with a rich and creamy chocolate ganache.

That recipe will always be hard to beat, but this Pumpkin Spice Piecaken is a true competitor with the creamy and silky pumpkin pie baked into a delicious spice cake and topped with a pumpkin spice icing. You guys, this is one addicting cake….or pie.

WHAT INGREDIENTS DO YOU NEED?

  • Spice cake mix
  • Milk
  • Butter
  • Eggs
  • Pumpkin pie
  • Powdered sugar
  • Heavy Cream
  • Pumpkin pie spice

That ingredients list is short, and if you haven’t already realized it, thats the way we like to keep it around here. Now this dessert looks like it would be complicated, but it truly isn’t.

Piecaken Combinations

We doctor up our cake mix slightly to make it a little more rich and creamy and dense so it is able to whole all the pie goodness inside.

You can use a store bough bakery 9″ or 10″ pie which we do usually or you can make your own homemade, but I would make sure that it is chilled first.

Chilling the pie makes it easier to turn upside down in the pan, but it is okay if you pie does crack when you insert it into the pan. That cake batter acts like glue and presses any cracked pieces back together and there isn’t any issues if that does happen.

  1. HI, your pumpkin spice piecaken looks fantastic. My question is, it looks as though before you frosted you flipped the piecaken so the pie top is actually at the top, not the bottom on top as when put together. How long did you cool before flipping out over? I am planning on making this for Thanksgiving.
    Thank you.

    1. I would let it cool probably 10-15 minutes. I’m sure you can make it where you can put the pumpkin pie just in normally and not flip it, but we have always flipped it because the way the cake bakes and how it encases the pie, there is more cake on the “bottom” after flipping so this is how we have always done it.
