Years ago I made a great pumpkin dessert. I remember it being really good. I remember it was gone within 4 hours of my making it. I remember both Craig and Kramer liking it…but did I remember where the recipe was? No.
After some hunting, I found it. See the note in my handwriting? It says “Great”!
I was in a mood to clean up everything I could clean up on the kitchen island. Sadly at my house, I have to work hard for it not to be a dumping ground…and it was a dumping ground on this day. In the middle were two squash. Kalissa’s in-laws give them to her. Kalissa brings them to me and then begs me to cook them for her. I decided this day was the day. I’d cook them both and use part of the squash as the pumpkin in this recipe.
Here’s the picture of the dessert from the cookbook.
The recipe is SUPER easy. After mixing the first set of ingredients, pour them into a greased pan then pour a cake mix over the top.
Then pour butter over it.
Bake an hour and you have this.
Mine isn’t as cute as the recipe picture as my squash was runnier than pumpkin in a can is and my pan was bigger than a 9 x 13. But taste?? Yummy. Exactly like I remembered.
I ate a piece while it was warm. I shouldn’t have. It’s MUCH better cold. I hope there is a piece left tomorrow so I can try a cold piece. Good news, I have more pumpkin and more evaporated milk….I don’t know about a cake mix though.
If you’re in charge of dessert for Thanksgiving, I highly suggest giving this a try.
