My Favorite Thanksgiving Dessert

I learned to make this in the Home Economics class that I took in high school….and it has been a favorite holiday treat ever since.

Pumpkin Pie Cake

cake mixture

1 29 oz can of  pumpkin

4 eggs

1 c. evaporated milk

1 1/2 c. sugar

1 tsp ginger

1 tsp cinnimon

1/2 tsp nutmeg


1 pkg   yellow cake mix

1 c. margarine

1/2 c nuts(optional)


Mix all ingredients of cake mixture, pour in 13×9 pan.  Sprinkle dry cake mix over cake mixture in pan.  Pour melted margarine on top of dry cake mix.

Sprinkle nuts (I use walnuts) on top and bake at 350  for one hour

Matthew and I made this tonight.  The Cake mix with the butter makes a hard crust that is absolutely delicious!  Can’t wait to eat it tomorrow!
