Pumpkin Dessert (Made with a Dry Cake Mix!)

It's time to make your list and check it twice! No... not for Christmas. For Thanksgiving! Our family has our 'traditions' but I'm always open to new recipes. I like to try to have one 'something' new every year. This one won't be new to us, but it might to you - and it's worthwhile making even if you already are planning a pumpkin pie. For those that don't care for pie, this is a winner.

Pumpkin Dessert Made with a Dry Cake Mix

3 eggs
1 - 12 oz. can evaporated milk
1 c sugar
½ t salt
½ t cinnamon
½ t ginger
smidgen of ground cloves to taste
1 large can (30 oz.) real pumpkin (not pie filling)
1 yellow cake mix
1 1/2 (12 Tablespoons) sticks butter or margarine.
1/4 cup chopped nuts

In a bowl whisk or beat on low the eggs, milk, sugar, salt and spices. Pour this into a greased 9X13" pan. Sprinkle the dry cake mix evenly over all. Melt the butter and drizzle over top and then sprinkle the nuts over all.

Bake @ 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until set. Cool and then refrigerate until chilled through. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream. Mmmm!Print Friendly and PDF
