My youngest son loves pumpkin pie. I usually make a couple each Thanksgiving. I'm not a piecrust master and didn't have any packaged ones. So I decided to do this instead. It was a very big hit with everyone. Just a little too sweet for my taste, I'll reduce the sugar next time and maybe experiment with some toasted nuts sprinkled over servings for a little more texture. Paired with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, this was The Bomb!
Made this to take to a family Christmas dinner. Got lots of approval and several requests for the recipe. I did substitute 1/4 tsp cloves for the nutmeg. (Not a fan of nutmeg), and I added 1 cup of chopped pecans to the top of cake before baking. Baked the cake for 55 minutes, because the center still looked a little runny after 45 minutes. Served the cake while still a little warm and topped with whip cream. Sensational! Thanks for sharing!
This dump cake is a little more work than the standard dump cake recipe, but it's worth it. It would be a hard recipe to mess up. No need to measure everything exactly. Like me, you can use regular milk if you don't have evaporated milk on hand (or you can find a recipe for evaporated milk on zaar, but it's more work than it's worth). It'd be good with some granola or something crunchy on the top for texture.
