Pumpkin Pie Cake

There's just too many great pumpkin desserts to pack into Thanksgiving day--pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin roll...

So I got an early start on enjoying the holiday treats and recently made this Pumpkin Pie Cake. It's a common recipe, sometimes called Pumpkin Dump Cake, that I clipped out of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette back in 2006. It's rich and delicious and like most 'dump' cakes you just can't beat how easy it is.

Pumpkin Pie Cake

1 (16 oz) can pumpkin
1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 TBS pumpkin pie spice
1 box yellow cake mix
3/4 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup margarine, melted

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, combine pumpkin, milk, eggs, sugar and pumpkin pie spice until well blended. Pour mixture into a greased 9-by-13 inch baking pan. Crumble dry cake mix and pecans over pumpkin mixture. Drizzle with melted margarine. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until top is golden brown.

  1. This is so good! The last time I made it was for Christmas last year, so I was glad to get a bite of the one you recently made.

  2. I have never had or heard of this, dump cakes are so yummy and I love pumpkin. If I get to the store today I will be making this over the weekend. YUM!

  3. Oh my. I love me some pumpkin. I mean really love it.
