Pumpkin Delight


Ok, we're going to try this. I'm slowly starting to appreciate food again, and not just force feed myself every couple hours.

This is a favorite pumpkin treat in our family. And I had completely forgotten about it until my brother started talking about it a few weeks ago. 

My husband is a pumpkin fanatic, so I'm always looking for pumpkin recipes. This is a sure winner!

And to be quite honest, I DON'T like pumpkin pie. I don't like pie actually. Crazy I know. I try every year to change my mind, because pies are so pretty. But I just don't like the crust. So this pumpkin delight is like pumpkin pie but with a cake crust instead of a pastry crust. WINNER!

I hope you enjoy! 

{PUMPKIN DELIGHT}
The crust:
1 pkg. yellow cake mix with 1 c. mix removed.
½ c. butter, melted
1 egg

Mix together and press firmly into a greased and floured 9x13 inch pan.

The filling
In a bowl mix the following:
1 large (30-oz) can pumpkin pie mix (not plain pumpkin!)
2 eggs, slightly beaten.
1 can evaporated milk

Pour onto crust.

The Topping:
Mix and crumble on the top:
¼ c. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
¼ c. cold butter
1 c. reserved cake mix.

Bake 350° for 50-60 minutes. Serve with whipped cream. This is great served warm or cold.
Pin It!

I made one of these last year and it totally wasn't great... Maybe I will have to give this one a try! The recipe I used called for the pure pumpkin, so maybe using the pumpkin pie mix will make a big difference?

I LOVE pumpkin, but don't like pumpkin pie either! And I just have to share this pie crust recipe...I'm very picky when it comes to pie, and this is BY FAR the best pie crust ever: http://lewisrecipebox.blogspot.com/2011/07/never-fail-pie-crust.html

And just this morning I came across a pumpkin recipe that looks divine in case you want to try it out for Steve (I haven't tried it yet): http://willowbirdbaking.wordpress.com/2011/09/18/pumpkin-spice-pull-apart-bread-with-butter-rum-glaze/

I'm glad you aren't just having to force feed yourself anymore. Isn't it strange how such a foodie can hate food when you're pregnant? It doesn't make sense and it's so sad! At least it's not terminal :)

What size can of evaporated milk do you use in the recipe? This sounds delish-can't wait to try it!
