I am new to this "dump cake" concept. I have heard about them but I have never made one myself. I realized I had all the ingredients to make this cake, so I decided to give it a whirl. As my Husband always says "it is better than it has a right to be" and is sure was.
1 can (15 0z.) pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
1 can (12 oz.) evaporated milk
3 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup of chopped Pecans
1 tsp. ground cinnamon (I used Pumpkin Pie Spice)
1 box spice cake mix (I read another recipe and only used 1/2 a box)
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine pumpkin puree, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar and cinnamon (I used pumpkin pie spice) until well combined. It will be very liquidy. Pour this pumpkin mixture into the baking
Sprinkle dry cake mix on top of pumpkin mixture. (I used half a box)
Sprinkle chopped pecans all over
Drizzle melted butter over the top.
Bake for about 55-60 minutes. It might still be just a bit jiggly in the middle when done.
It will continue to set up as it cools. Let it cool for at least 30 minutes before slicing and
