The teacher is reported to be planning to make this for her Thanksgiving dinner, INSTEAD of traditional pumpkin pie. How's THAT for an endorsement??? :) It's super easy but tastes divine. Enjoy!
- 1 large can of pumpkin (29 oz)
- 1 can evaporated milk (12 oz)
- 3/4 t. salt
- 1 t. cinnamon
- 2 t. vanilla
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 c. brown sugar
- 1/2 c. white sugar
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1/2 c. melted butter
Mix the first 8 ingredients together. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Now you have 2 options for the topping:
- You can mix the cake mix with the melted butter and then "crumble" it over the pumpkin. Or ..
- You can sprinkle the DRY mix over the pumpkin mix and then drizzle the melted butter over it, evenly.
It's up to you. It's great either way. The kids in Journalism liked it the dry & drizzle way, but I think I like the mix & crumble way. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes until the top is set. Serve it with cool whip or vanilla ice cream, or just sit around the pan with friends and spoons.
Happy Pumpkin Season! Tomorrow I can't wait to share with you a great reminder that you WILL NOT forget about how to get Up From the Dumps. ;)
