Pumpkin pie cake



18 oz canned pumpkin (or fresh equivalent)

1 box yellow cake mix (for a two-layer cake)

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup melted margarine or butter

13 oz can evaporated milk (ensure it’s not sweetened condensed)

3/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

3 eggs

3 tsp cinnamon


Combine Wet Ingredients: Begin by whisking together the eggs and milk. Add in the pumpkin, sugar, and cinnamon, mixing until the ensemble is smoothly blended.

Prepare the Pan: Pour your well-mixed ingredients into a generously greased 9x13 pan, creating a solid base for your cake.

Sprinkle the Magic: Delicately sprinkle the entire box of dry cake mix over your wet mixture, ensuring an even layer that will bake into a delicious, crusty topping.

Drizzle and Decorate: Gracefully drizzle the melted margarine or butter over the cake mix layer. Follow this by generously sprinkling your chosen chopped nuts atop for an extra crunch.

Bake to Perfection: Place your concoction into a preheated oven at 350 degrees. Allow it to bake blissfully for 50-60 minutes, or until it achieves a perfectly baked consistency.

Serve with a Dollop: Whether warm from the oven or cooled to room temperature, serve each slice with a lavish dollop of whipped cream or your favorite topping.
