Description

In my humble opinion this is better than the original pumpkin pie! You also don’t have to worry about making pie crust, which is why it immediately gained my favor. The bottom layer is soft and little bit gooey, while the top layer is slightly crumbly and made up of yellow cake mix and butter. It’s perfect when paired with soft serve vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients

  • 29 ounces, weight Pure Pumpkin
  • 4 whole Eggs
  • 12 ounces, fluid Evaporated Milk
  • 1-½ cup White Sugar
  • ¼ teaspoons Ground Ginger
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1 box (18.25 Oz. Box) Yellow Cake Mix
  • 1 cup Melted Butter

Preparation

Beat together the pumpkin, eggs, milk, sugar, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pour into a 13 x 9 inch pan. Sprinkle the yellow cake mix on top. Pour melted butter over top.

Bake at 350F for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Thanks for sharing this recipe! I had it several years ago, then lost the recipe and will be happy to make this again for a treat to take to work during the holidays.

Just made a version of this the other day with 4 diced apples mixed with the cake mix and butter, then glopped on the top of the pumpkin mixture that was amazing!

This was a huge hit at a dinner party I took it to last night. I held back some of the cake mix per the comments and baked for an hour and ten minutes. Good stuff!

I made this for my in-laws and they loved it!!! I had never made it before and was nervous….but it turned out great. I cooked it longer than the minimum time as well. I will make this again!
