Rachel Sebastian 10/8/2016
Pumpkin season is finally back! Welcome fall with this deliciously easy cake mix recipe. This pumpkin dump cake is the new fall favorite you didn't know you needed until now. This cake is not only incredibly easy to make, it's delicious and has a great presentation. It requires a box of cake mix and pumpkin puree. The pumpkin dump cake is the perfect combination of a rich pumpkin pie and a sweet, crunchy cake topping.
Now that the weather is getting colder, you'll want to take full advantage of fall flavors. There's really no better way to immerse yourself in the season than by making a pumpkin dump cake. And, with the holidays on the horizon, you'll want to have this cake recipe in your arsenal for all the fun dinner parties ahead.
The first order of business is to make the pumpkin pie filling, as it will make up the base of the cake. Add canned pumpkin, sugar, evaporated milk, three eggs, salt, and pumpkin spice to a mixing bowl.
After sprinkling the whole box of cake mix on top of the pumpkin mixture, add the pecans over the cake mix. This adds a bit of crunch, as well as some fun flavor and dimension to the cake.
The next step is to pour the melted butter over the entire cake, being sure to pour it evenly. The butter will combine with the cake mix and the pumpkin mixture as the cake bakes, so don't worry if you think it looks too buttery.
Once the butter is poured evenly over the cake, bake the cake for 55-60 minutes at 350 degrees. The cake will come out slightly brown, and the butter and cake mixture will have combined to make a sweet and crunchy topping.
