Okay, I said BAKE! I can only do a few things culinary wise and Pumpkin Dessert is one of them. Even I have to admit, it's pretty good. It's become a family tradition that we take in a batch to share with our co-workers for Christmas.
Well since there are 4 of us working now, I was up this morning at 5am baking 4 different Pumpkin Desserts.
This picture totally doesn't do it justice. I should have checked my camera settings, and done a better job but trust me - it's GOOOOOOOD!
Without fail, I am always asked for the recipe, and since I not "one of those" people who won't share, here you go:
1 yellow cake mix
1 can Libby's Pumpkin Pie mix (not the regular canned pumpkin - but the pumpkin pie mix)
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup butter or margarine (needs a soft consistency to mix)
and additional 1/4 butter or margarine (same mixable consistency)
1/4 up sugar
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
Take one cup of the cake mix and set aside in a separate bowl.
Spray or grease a 9/13 cake pan
To the remaining cake mix, add 3/4 cup margarine or butter and 1 egg.
Mix until moist/crumbly but not sticky. Press into the bottom of the cake pan
Combine the pumpkin pie mix, 3/4 cup milk and 2 eggs. Pour over the layer in the pan
To the remaining 1 cup of cake mix, add 1/4 cup sugar and generous sprinkling of cinnamon. Sift together and then add 1/4 butter/margarine.
Mix to a crumbly consistency (not sticky) and crumble over the pumpkin layer.
Bake for 1 hour.
I love to serve it warm with cool whip, but it's also just as good chilled.
Let me know how you like it!
