How to Make Pumpkin Dump Cake
Pumpkin Puree – this is NOT Pumpkin Pie Filling, you just want Pumpkin and Albertson’s Signature SELECT™ brand is 100% Pure Pumpkin.
Pumpkin Pie Seasoning – the perfect blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves.
- Brown Sugar
- Evaporated Milk
- Yellow Cake Mix – don’t have a yellow cake mix? Use a white cake mix or a spice cake mix.
- Graham Crackers
Shop Albertson store’s exclusive brands like Signature SELECT™, Lucerne®, Open Nature® and O Organics® for the best quality ingredients.
After mixing together the pumpkin, pumpkin pie seasoning, brown sugar and eggs, pour in the evaporated milk.
Pour the mixture into a greased 9 x 13 pan and then top with dry cake mix. Use it straight out of the box.
Now for the secret ingredient. I love to add broken up graham crackers to the top of my Pumpkin Dump Cake. It gives some great flavor and I love the crunch of the crackers. I use the same trick for my Apple Crisp. You can also add in chopped pecans if you prefer. I am just not a fan of nuts in my baked goods.
Sprinkle your graham crackers or nuts on top of the cake mix – or live dangerously and use both!!
Next, you will add the butter. Most Dump Cake recipes call for you to melt the butter and then drizzle it over the top. I find it is hard to get a good even coverage doing it that way so I prefer to grate my butter while it is still frozen in the food processor and then sprinkle over the top. The butter melts more evenly and you get better butter coverage.
By grating the butter, you don’t end up with dry patches of cake mix after baking. You end up with a beautiful golden brown top.
Let the cake cool for about 15 minutes and then serve it while it is warm. It is delicious at room temperature or chilled. Of course, adding a scoop of ice cream to the warm pumpkin dump cake is my favorite way to enjoy it. And take it one step further and better and add some caramel sauce too! This is my favorite homemade caramel sauce.
I shopped at Albertons, but you can also find all your holiday baking needs at the Albertsons Companies family of stores, including Albertsons, Safeway, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Randalls, Shaw’s Supermarket, Star Market, Tom Thumb and Vons.
