We are going to my daughter’s for Thanksgiving.  I’m bringing a Pumpkin Pie Cake and other desserts and am making my famous crock pot spinach dip.

I’ve never made the Pumpkin Pie Cake, so the picture is from Allrecipes.com.

I’m adapting the recipe to fit what I have on hand.  Some recipes say to use evaporated milk.  The original recipe called for yellow cake mix.

1 29 oz. can pumpkin

4 eggs

1 c. milk

1 1/2 c. sugar

2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

1/2 tsp. salt

1 box butter pecan cake mix

1 c. chopped pecans

1 c. melted butter

Mix first 6 ingredients and pour into 13 x 9 baking dish sprayed with baking spray.

Sprinkle dry cake mix.

Drizzle with butter.

Sprinkle with nuts.

Bake at 350 F for one hour.

Top with whipped cream.
