Better 'n Punkin Pie

This recipe makes the rounds every holiday season. It goes by many names -- Pumpkin Crunch, Pumpkin Crisp, Pumpkin Dump Cake. This took the place of pumpkin pie on my holiday menu ever since the first time I made it. Have a safe Halloween!


1 15 oz. can pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 box yellow cake mix
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup butter melted

Mix pumpkin, milk, sugar, eggs, cinnamon and vanilla until blended together. Pour into a 9 x 13 pan. Mix pecans with dry cake mix. Pour dry mix over pumpkin mixture. Pour melted butter evenly over the top. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes. Can serve with whipped cream or ice cream.

I've been meaning to try a "Pumpkin dump cake" ever since Anna blogged about it.
Yours looks great! I love the little pumpkins by it.
