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.
1 29 oz. can pure pumpkin (or use your fresh pumpkin from the garden)
1 12 oz can evaporated milk
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.
