Description

All the yum of pumpkin pie, minus the hassle of a pie crust, plus the bonus of a buttery cinnamon topping. No trick…just an amazing treat!

Ingredients

  • 1 box (18 oz. size) Yellow Cake Mix, Divided
  • 1 whole Egg, Lightly Beaten
  • ½ cups Butter, Melted
  • 1 cup Sugar, Divided
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon, Divided
  • ½ teaspoons Ginger
  • ¼ teaspoons Ground Cloves
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 cup Canned Pumpkin
  • ⅔ cups Evaporated Milk
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • ¼ cups Cold Butter, Diced

Preparation

This recipe has three parts, a crust, a filling and a topping. Before you start anything, preheat your oven to 350F, and get out a 13×9 pan.

For the crust:
Reserve 1 cup of the cake mix for the topping. Pour remaining cake mix into a bowl, then stir in the one beaten egg and the 1/2 cup of melted butter until the mixture is well combined. Press evenly into the 13×9 pan and set aside.

For the filling:
Combine 3/4 cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, the ginger, cloves, salt, pumpkin, evaporated milk and 2 eggs together. Using a whisk, stir until smooth. Pour over the crust.

For the topping:
Stir together the 1 cup of reserved cake mix, and the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Cut in the 1/4 cup of butter dice using a pastry blender or a fork. Sprinkle evenly over the filling.

Bake at 350F for 35-40 minutes, or until filling is set. Allow to cool completely, cut into bars, and serve!

I made these for my family last week and they were absolutely delicious! Super easy to make too. The only issue I had was that I followed Missamy’s notes (from the TastyKitchen blog) and used almond milk instead of the evaporated milk that is called for. The bars never quite set, so I’m thinking that almond milk doesn’t work as well as it could. Next time I’ll follow the recipe exactly. Thanks!

These are fantastic! Made them to take to a family holiday get together, wish I could just keep them for myself. Used a can of Libby’s “Easy” pumpkin pie mix because that’s what I had, it worked fine. Great pie alternative, well written instructions, delicious results – thanks!

Easy and tasty! We don’t usually eat a lot of dessert in our house, but these were so good we were scooping them up for breakfast too!
