This recipe has been a MUST in our home for years now. The "magic" is in the fact that the bottom rises to the top when it bakes, forming a rich, delicious topping. My kids think the name is odd and can never remember it, so I often call it Pumpkin Cobbler. In fact, just the other day my DS said, "Mommy - you haven't make that pumpkin cobbler stuff this year!" Better add it to my shopping list.....Thanks for posting - now I don't have to! : )

The flavor of this recipe is definitely 5 stars but I reduced it to 4 for the following reasons. 1. The instructions are difficult to read because they are all jumbled into one step. 2. No mention of the size pan. Unfortunately, I guessed wrong but by the time that I had everything in the pan it was too late - you can't move it to another pan. I will make this again but next time will use at least a 9 x 13 pan. As for the melted butter, I believe that you just put the batter on top of it and then the filling on top of the batter. (I have a cobbler recipe that is a lot like this one - it just uses the smaller pan)

3 hours later finally had a cooked dessert that had wonderful flavor with a caramel like topping. Cooked at 325F in glass pan 7"x11".Used recipe 39562 for the evaporated milk sub. The instructions did not say what to do with the melted butter so I mixed with milk and vanilla then added combined wet with the dry for the base. After one hour cooking the top was beautiful golden but hardly cooked thru at all so covered in foil and 2 hours later finally looked done and suprisingly tasted great.
