Pumpkin Dump Cake
Pumpkin desserts are always a huge hit in our house. My daughter gets the most excited for pumpkin season to begin. She is all about everything pumpkin.
She was so anxious yesterday that she started making our Homemade Pumpkin Butter to enjoy on her breakfast toast. She loves that stuff. But she didn’t stop there. She was ready for me to make her favorite No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake. She begged and pleaded, ha ha. I was in a pinch for time and I didn’t have the ingredients on hand to make a cheesecake.
I did load up on pumpkin this past week though. I found a nice clearance at Kroger. Lucky for me, they had a bunch of dented cans that I found in the clearance area. I felt like I hit the lottery, lol. I had tons of my favorite yellow cake mix in the pantry. So this super delicious Pumpkin Dump Cake was in order.
This cake is so super simple to make. It is almost fool proof. You just need to mix up your ingredients, dump in a cake pan, toss in a dry cake mix, butter, and optionally some pecans.
Pumpkin Dump Cake is like a pumpkin pie with a somewhat crunchy and sweet coating. The stuff is out of this world amazing. You will want to make it over and over again. I find it perfect when I am pressed for time and great for feeding a crowd over the holidays.
Grab yourself some pure pumpkin, evaporated milk, a yellow cake mix, some eggs, vanilla, and cinnamon. That’s all it takes. In less than an hour, you can have an amazing fall pumpkin desert.
30 oz 100% Pure Pumpkin
12 oz Evaporated Milk
1 cup Sugar
3 tsp Cinnamon
1 box Yellow Cake Mix
1 cup chopped Pecans (Optional)
3/4 cup melted Butter
Preheat oven to 350.
Grease a 9×13 baking dish. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar, and cinnamon.

Evenly sprinkle cake mix over the top of the batter.
Sprinkle pecans over the cake mix.

I do keep my leftovers refrigerated, not sure if it would be necessary or not.
