This passed weekend we celebrated our Thanksgiving holiday with my mom's side of the family. It was a little early but it was a celebration in conjunction with my Papa's birthday, so it worked out well. We had tons of fun and yummy food! I'm not normally someone who cares for pumpkin much, I'm not fond of the texture of pumpkin pie at all, but this dish I made for our Thanksgiving celebration was AMAZING!
1 (15 oz) can of pumpkin
1 cup evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 (18.25 oz) pkg butter-flaved yellow cake mix
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup butter, melted
Stir together first 5 ingredients. Pour into a lightly greased 13x9" baking dish. Sprinkle cake mix evenly over pumpkin mix; sprinkle evenly with pecans. Drizzle butter evenly over pecans.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour - 1 hour 5 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature. Serve with whipped cream, if desired. Sprinkle with nutmeg, if desired.
I would definitely check it often because it only took 40 minutes for mine to cook in my Mom's oven. Oven times defintely DO vary!
Even if you aren't a pumpkin eater, you will LOVE this. Trust me. It's so wonderful and so tasty. There wasn't a crumb left for me to take home!
Now mosey on over to All The Small Stuff to see what everyone else is cooking.
