Dad's (Charlie's) Pumpkin Dessert

Great Pumpkin DessertThis is a very easy cake made with canned pumpkin and yellow cake mix. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Makes 1 - 9x13 inch pan (24 servings). Printed from Allrecipes

1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
3 eggs
1 cup white sugar (plain old white sugar)
4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 (18.5 ounce) package yellow cake mix (this was shocking, my father purchasing a cake mix!)
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan. In a large bowl, combine pumpkin, milk, eggs, sugar and spice. Mix well, and pour into a 9x13 inch pan. Sprinkle dry cake mix over the top, then drizzle with melted butter. Top with walnuts. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

with a bit of creativity, this could be considered health food, if mental health counts cause it is so yummy all your troubles go away while eating it. I suppose you could sprinkle some wheat germ amongst the nuts. :-)

EnjoyLove, Dad

Mmmm. I remember this from our get-together--it's really, really good. I would never have believed you could make something so delicious with a cake mix.
