Not to put my mother down, but these are "Recipes My Mother Never Gave Me." She never liked to cook and didn't even try to hide that fact. I had to learn from other mothers and other friends. These are the recipes that I have created and some that were adapted from recipes I have found over the years. Enjoy!
Pumpkin Pie Crunch Cake
This goes out to all my fellow pumpkin lovers out there! It's one of those magic cake recipes that when you bake it, you have a pumpkin pie filling on the bottom and a crunchy, buttery topping. This will definitely become a family favorite during the holidays this year (it was for my family last year!).
Pumpkin Pie Crunch Cake Serves 12
1 can (15 oz) pumpkin
1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
3 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 box classic yellow cake mix
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 13- x
9-inch baking pan. Place pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, granulated sugar, brown
sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Using a mixer, beat on medium speed
until combined. Pour into prepared pan.
Sprinkle dry cake mix evenly over pumpkin mixture. Top
with pecans. Drizzle melted butter over pecans. Bake until golden
brown, about 55 minutes. Cool. Serve chilled (or warm).
