Okay, Thimbleanna, This Is For You!

Quite a while back I posted about a cherry dump cake and Thimbleanna and I had a little email conversation, the end being that when I next made the dump cake I was telling her about I should blog about it. Hence:

Pumpkin Dump Cake

1 can (15 oz) solid pack pumpkin
1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice mix
1 pkg (18 3/4 oz) yellow cake mix
3/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

In a mixing bowl, combine the first five ingredients.

Transfer to a 13 X 9 X 2-inch baking pan.

Sprinkle with dry cake mix and drizzle with melted butter. Top with nuts.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
Dump Cakes really are wonderfully easy to make and SO good!
Just to balance out all the sin of the dump cake, :) I also made some healthy, healthy whole wheat bread. Got to be fair, right?

Have a great evening!
