We’ve had lots of pumpkin goodness around the blog lately, but this time of year there is never enough pumpkin goodness. So today Ginger from GingerSnapCrafts is sharing a delicious Pumpkin Crunch Cake with us!
I got this amazing recipe for pumpkin crunch cake from my friend several years ago when we lived in Texas. And now it has become a yummy family tradition. As soon as November rolls around my kiddos start asking for it! It has the perfect blend of crunchiness, nuttiness, sweetness & of course, pumpkin!
You start by mixing pumpkin, evaporated milk, cinnamon, sugar & eggs together.
Line your pan with parchement paper. Spray the paper lightly with the cooking spray and pour the pumpkin mixture into the pan. Then sprinkle yellow cake mix over the pumpkin mixture and pat chopped nuts over the mix. I used chopped walnuts, put pecans are delicious too! Finally, spoon melted butter evenly over the surface.
Bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until done & slightly golden brown.
