Dump Cake. Such an attractive name for a dessert, don’t you think? Nothing makes you want to dig in more than hearing the word “Dump.” Mmm. Mmm. Mmm. Ok, ok, so I’m being sarcastic. But it really isn’t the prettiest name for a really good (and of course, easy!) dessert. And truthfully, it’s not the prettiest dessert either. I’m not exactly selling this recipe to you, am I? Ha!


1 (15 oz) can pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie mix)
1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
3 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 box spice cake mix
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted


Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
Spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine pumpkin puree, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar and cinnamon until well-combined. It will be very liquid-y.
Pour this pumpkin mixture into the baking dish.
Sprinkle dry cake mix on top of pumpkin mixture.
Drizzle melted butter over the top.
Bake for about 55-60 minutes.
It might still be just a bit jiggly in the middle when done. It will continue to set up as it cools.
Let it cool for at least 30 minutes before slicing and serving.
