October is the month for pumpkins and carving jack-o-lanterns. It's also the time for Halloween parties, treats, and scary stories. Today I am sharing an easy pumpkin recipe for you to serve at your next Halloween get-together. 

Pumpkin Dump Cake

1 29 oz. can pure pumpkin (or use your fresh pumpkin from the garden)
1 12 oz can evaporated milk
3 eggs
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 box yellow cake mix
1 c. chopped pecans (or walnuts)
3/4 c. melted margarine

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix first 6 ingredients until well blended. Pour batter into 9x13 greased pan.

Sprinkle cake mix on top, then cover with pecans. Pour melted margarine over top.

Bake 50 minutes.

So now you have your treat for Halloween. May I also suggest a scary story? Sunshine Boulevard  is a frightening story for this spooky month of fun.

  1. This sounds delicious. I make something similar and I love the ease of it. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Wow, does that sound good! Maybe you should call it Dumpkin Cake. Don't care about the title, if its good, and this one will be I'm sure. Sadly, I'm off desserts forever.
    Well, it seems like forever. I've lost 35 pounds and have that much to go yet. Sad to miss out on treats such as yours, but glad I'm lighter now. Cheers,

  3. I got to tell you that just sounds yummy. I normally don't actually make a recipe if it's over 4 ingredience, but my hubby does. I am passing it right on to him!!!

  4. It really is easy and very tasty. Try it!

  5. This sounds yummy! I bet my kids would love it. :) They're all about pumpkins - toddlers. ;) Thank you for sharing!
