I was looking for a new recipe for dessert this Thanksgiving.
I came across this one, which I have tweaked a bit.
It is like those “Dump Cakes” of the 1970’s. I have the one in the oven right now. Wish you could smell it baking
Pumpkin Dump Cake
1 29 ounce can Libby’s canned pumpkin
1 box yellow cake mix, any brand
1 cup melted butter
Prepare the pumpkin according to label instructions, using only one can of evaporated milk. I also used only 1 cup sugar as the cake mix is very sweet. Pour the pumpkin mixture into a greased 13 x 9 pan. I recommend using Baker’s Joy or similar product. Sprinkle the dry cake mix evenly over the top of the pumpkin mixture, then carefully drizzle the melted butter over the cake mix.
You can sprinkle with 1 cup chopped nuts if you wish, but our extended family is crazy enough already.
Bake at 325 for 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours. When completely cooled top servings with real whipped cream. Refrigerate any leftovers….what leftovers?
When I serve this, I will warm it up slightly, I think it is better slightly warmed.
