Pumpkin Crunch Dessert

Here is a dessert that's easy to make and yummy enough to serve company for Thanksgiving.
I found a whole box of cake mix to be a bit much for the topping, so the next time I'm going to try about 3/4 box. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream.

Pumpkin Crunch Dessert

1 box yellow cake mix
1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
1 12oz can evaporated milk
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 1/2 sticks melted butter
 Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom of 9x13 pan.
Mix pumpkin, milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, salt and vanilla. Pour into greased pan.
Sprinkle dry cake mix over pumpkin mixture and top with pecans. Drizzle melted butter over pecans.
Bake 45-50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

  3. Your post got my attention from Yvonne's -- it looks delicious. I am making a pumpkin crunch dessert also but it will be sugar-free and low-carb. Can't wait to dig into it with a BIG dollop of whipped cream. Hoping mine turns out as delicious looking as yours :)
