Do you love pumpkin pie? You do?! Oh good, we can still be friends. haha. Just kidding, we can still be friends even if you do not like it, I love you enough to overlook your flaws 🙂 I adore pumpkin pie, as does my husband. We used to go to a church that loved pie too. On March 14th we celebrated International Pie Day… get it 3.14? (Ok, so my husband was the Pastor who instituted that and he is a math guy, obviously.) We also had this delectable dessert after our Thanksgiving Eve church service every year – Pumpkin Dump. It’s like Pumpkin Pie, in cake form. Pie is hard to make. This is an easy fall dessert. 4 ingredients + 1 pan = Easiest Fall Dessert Ever!

Pumpkin Dump Cake Recipe
(preheat oven to 325F)
Get ready to dump in your ingredients. Literally, just dump em in there.
2. Pour Pumpkin Pie Mix into pan
3. Pour yellow cake mix on top
4. Sprinkle with pecans
5. Drizzle melted butter over the top (you are gonna think, “some of the cake mix is not completely covered by the butter, oh no!” not to worry, it will cook correctly. promise.)
Place in a 325F oven for 25-30 minutes (oven times will vary depending on your model, pan type, and altitiude… so check at 20 minutes by shaking pan, if it wiggles like jello it is not done, if it looks firm, test with a tooth pick, if it comes out clean you are all done.)
***Update 11.04.15 – This recipe was originally written and tested in the Caribbean with 90% humidity and a very unreliable oven… subsequent trials in California have shown that a baking time of 75-90 minutes is best!***
Let cool, then drown it in whipped cream & enjoy!
Which Fall Holiday are you gonna make this for?
Halloween Party? Thanksgiving with the in-laws? “Woo-hoo it’s finally fall” day? (That’s a real day, right?)
