Another Pumpkin Treat

Leslie is our #3 daughter, and also a friend. Although she's a good cook, she doesn't enjoy it. She likes eating, though, so I'm always happy to have her to dinner. She gave me this recipe.

Leslie's Favorite Pumpkin Dump Cake

  • 15-oz can of pumpkin--not pumpkin pie filling
  • 1 5 or 6-oz can evaporated milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 9-oz box yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup melted margarine

Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix first six ingredients until well blended. Pour batter into a greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle cake mix on top. Cover with pecans. Pour melted margarine over top. Bake about 45 minutes to an hour.

Whip together well, pour into graham cracker crust and chill 3 or so hours. Top with fresh fruit.

YUM! This sounds much better than a pumpkin pie...

Doesn't it, though? I don't particularly care for pumpkin pie, but I love pumpkin roll, bread and cake! :-p
