The crispy, crumbly spice cake on top of this easy fall dessert recipe is the perfect compliment to the sweet pumpkin pie on the bottom. Add a dollop of whipped cream, and you’ve got some happy tummies. It certainly makes traditional pumpkin pie seem a little boring.
This amazing treat is also incredibly quick and easy to make using boxed spice cake mix and melted butter poured over top. Yum! Your family won’t be disappointed.
1Start by mixing the canned pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl.
2Carefully pour that beautiful pumpkin mixture into a greased 9×13 baking dish. Make sure it looks perfect like mine.
3Evenly sprinkle the box of spice cake mix over top of the pumpkin mixture. It helps to slowly spoon it on so that you don’t end up with a pile in one corner of the dish.
4Drizzle the melted butter over top. It’s best to use something that will allow you to pour slowly so that you can evenly distribute it.
5Bake for about an hour or until the buttery cake mix topping is a dark golden brown and the pumpkin is cooked through. I prefer to serve it chilled with whipped cream slathered all over.
