food friday...pumpkin dump cake

To finish off November I am going to share my favorite pumpkin recipe. I really fell in love with pumpkin flavored treats just a few years ago. I have tried several recipes, but mixing pumpkin with a classic and easy dump cake recipe that I have eaten many times with various canned fruit was a pleasant surprise. 

In a mixing bowl combine...
1 can pumpkin purée
1 can evaporated milk
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
3/4 cup sugar
3 eggs

This is the bottom layer and can be evenly distributed in 10-12 lightly buttered small ramekins or the bottom of a 9x13 dish. 

Next, in a medium bowl, mix...
1 box dry cake mix, I used spiced cake but you could probably also use white or yellow 
1 cup chopped nuts

This is the next layer. Evenly distribute on top of pumpkin layer. 

Melt 1 stick of butter and slowly pour over dry mixture. 

Bake at 350 for 45-65 minutes. Edges will brown. Lower time for ramekins and longer cool time for a large dish. 

We topped it with freshly whipped cream. A perfect treat for a fall night by the fire or a small Christmas party. 

Happy Friday all!
