Pumpkin Dump Cake

This amazing fall dessert is one of the easiest things I have ever made. I had to beg for the recipe after having it at few parties. My family loves when I bring it to dinner; it is a staple at Thanksgiving dinner. Many of the ingredients will be on sale soon, plus there's usually a coupon for Carnation Evaporated Milk this time of year. Happy baking!

  • 1 can pure pumpkin (29 oz)
  • 1 can evaporated milk (12 oz)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 T cinnamon
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional) a mini-chopper works great to speed this up
  • 3/4 stick of melted butter
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 9 x 13 inch pan.
  2. Mix pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar, salt, and cinnamon until well blended.
  3. Sprinkle cake mix on top.
  4. Cover with chopped nuts.
  5. Pour melted butter over top.
  6. Bake 50 minutes.
  7. Serve with whipped topping or ice cream.
This time, I split my recipe into 2 pans for 2 different events; worked great!

Difficulty: Easy
Time: Prep is 15 minutes, baking time is 50 minutes
