it's pumpkin time!

took this to a party on Saturday, and if I do say so myself it was the hit!
made it again last night and the guys preferred the peanut butter chocolate brownies over this...
(and for some crazy reason we now have both options sitting down on our counter...tis the season...)

one suggestion after making this twice in a week...use Butter Recipe Yellow Cake Mix if you can find it (much easier to find during the holiday season)...I used the Butter Recipe Cake Mix for the one I made on Saturday and just a regular yellow cake mix last night, I think the 1st one was better!

it's a pumpkin pie/cake/pecan crunch thing that follows the classic dump cake format...
liquid in the bottom, cake mix on top, and BUTTER on the entire thing!
how can you go wrong with that???

Pumpkin Crunch Dump Cake
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup evaporated milk
1 1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs
1-2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 box yellow cake mix...Butter Recipe Yellow if you can find it!
1/2 -1 cup chopped pecans (I only sprinkled them on 1/2 the cake because I had non-nut eaters)
1 cup (2 sticks) melted butter

spray 9x13 pan, set aside.  preheat oven to 350

in large bowl mix together pumpkin, milk, sugar, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon & nutmeg.  Pour into prepared pan.

sprinkle dry cake mix evenly over the top of pumpkin mixture.  sprinkle pecans oven cake mix.  pour melted butter over entire thing.

bake for 50 minutes or until it's nice and golden brown!

serve warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!
