Dump Cake. Such an attractive name for a dessert, don't you think? Nothing makes you want to dig in more than hearing the word "Dump." Mmm. Mmm. Mmm. Ok, ok, so I'm being sarcastic. But it really isn't the prettiest name for a really good (and of course, easy!) dessert. And truthfully, it's not the prettiest dessert either. I'm not exactly selling this recipe to you, am I? But if you follow my blog regularly then I hope you trust me and that I'll only share recipes that me and my family love. And this one is no exception!
ingredients in a bowl to mix and then you "dump" dry cake mix on top before baking. Dump cakes are easy to make but full of flavor. I feel like I use that word "easy" a lot. But that is a big part of how I cook. I like easy. I like quick. I like things that aren't a lot of fuss.
But I also really enjoy the process of cooking and baking. And I like when I can still manage to make dinner and dessert. Now that fall is here, I thought it was time to break out an old favorite. Pumpkin Pie Dump Cake. All the flavors and texture of pumpkin pie topped with a sweet and slightly crunchy topping.
1 can (15 0z.) pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
1 can (12 oz.) evaporated milk
3 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 box Spice Cake Mix
1 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. I like to use the kind that has flour in it. It works great.
In a medium bowl, combine pumpkin puree, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar and cinnamon until well-combined. It will be very liquid-y.Pour this mixture into a baking dish.
Sprinkle dry cake mix on top of pumpkin mixture.
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 serving.
Be sure to refrigerate any leftovers. I like to heat each piece up in the microwave for a few seconds before serving since I enjoy eating it warm.
Dollop each serving with a bit of whipped cream and a candy pumpkin (if you're feeling festive!)Enjoy!
