The BEST Pumpkin Dessert Ever! {recipe}


I grew up in small town Iowa.  A graduating class of only 43.  It was awesome....and one of the best parts was the annual Thanksgiving lunch our lunch ladies made.  It was awesome!  Turkey, gravy, potatoes, and the BEST pumpkin dessert ever!  It seriously brought in members of the community - it was that good of a meal.  Before I graduated, a friend of mine and I asked the head cook for the recipe.  (And because small town folks are the best...she shared it with us.)  Since then, I have made this dessert every.single.year for Thanksgiving.

Now....I shall share this glorious dish with you.  (You're welcome in advance.) 

Pumpkin Pie Dessert
6 eggs (beat these first)
1 c. white sugar
1 large can pumpkin pie filling (3+ cups)
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cloves
1 large can evaporated milk
1 yellow cake mix
1/2 c. oleo
Mix all ingredients thoroughly.  Add and mix with evaporated milk.  Pour into buttered 9x13 pan.  Crumble 1 box of yellow cake mix and 1/2 c. oleo (do NOT melt).  Sprinkle on top of mixture in the cake pan and bake at 350* for 50-55 min. or until knife text comes out clean.

That's it!  Let that bad boy cool and serve with some whip cream.  

Ahhhhhmaaazing!  Seriously.

p.s. I store mine in the fridge...I like it cold.  You could leave yours on the counter if you'd like.

  1. My mom makes something like this and it's divine. One of my favorite desserts ever. :) Glad to see you're back blogging... I missed reading your posts! And I sincerely hope you have a happy holiday season. It sounds like things have been rough lately, but I'm sure there are lots of people out there (myself included) sending prayers and positive thoughts.
