We appreciate you all waiting for us to get this recipe right to share…Michelle has been lucky enough to enjoy this cake twice – Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Combining apple pie with pumpkin is something we have done before as a layered apple pie pumpkin parfait, but this time we wanted a cake!

This triple layered cake is another favorite way for us to enjoy a mix of flavors in one dessert.

Do you like layered cakes?

We topped our pumpkin apple layered cake with pumpkin mousse, which made for the perfect whipped cream.

The first time when Michelle made it she did the crust on the bottom but we flipped it this time. Upside down cake! Why did we do this? We just liked the way it looked. But you can enjoy it any way you like.

Just like we always say have fun in the kitchen!

Each layered works so well together…all the spices, apple flavor, pumpkin richness, and the overall smoothness of the cake with small bites of apple pieces just makes every bite a perfect balance.

This pumpkin apple pie layered cake might look complicated to make, but really it is just blending and layering. Easy. And you can adjust each layer flavoring to your liking, if you want more spice or more sweetness change it.

Nothing like having apple pie and pumpkin pie mixed together into one cake! Are we right?

We hope you enjoy our new raw dessert recipe as you all know we love making raw desserts!

Twins Question: What do you like better apple pie or pumpkin pie? Ever have them together?

This looks great! I’ve never had a layered cake quite like this and am definitely interested. Another amazing recipe!

This cake looks so delicious! I think I’ll be tempted to eat all of the layers before they make it to cake form, though! The apple layer looks especially wonderful, and I think I might have to make it as a pudding for myself!
