Pumpkin Crunch

Pumpkin Crunch with Whipped Cream

Need a dessert easier than pie? 

Everyone will ooh and aah about Pumpkin Crunch that goes together in a jiff, so you can enjoy time with family and friends.

Pumpkin Crunch

Whip up your filling...just like pie...

top with a cake mix, pecans, drizzle with butter, the easier part! Bake for one hour...

or our favorite, a swirl of whipped cream. Serve with lots of love and thanksgiving.

Pumpkin Crunch
  • 1 (29 oz.) can pumpkin
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. cloves
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 yellow cake mix*
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1-1/2 cups pecans, chopped
  • ice cream or whipped cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine pumpkin, milk, sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and eggs. Pour into a 9x13" pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Sprinkle cake mix over the top of filling, then pecans, and drizzle with melted butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. It will hold together best if you let it sit for another hour before serving. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream. Makes 16 to 20 generous servings.

*Note: For family and friends that require gluten free desserts, this one is perfect.  Use a gluten free mix, (I like Betty Crocker) and really no one else would ever know!

Thanks to all of my SWB friends!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.
