Maybe you love pumpkin, but you’re not a pie person…
Wait. Are there really people who aren’t pie people? Well, in the event that there are, or in the event that you just want a pumpkin dessert that’s a little different, this easy cake has you covered. It’s full of pumpkin spice and everything nice and we think you’ll love it as much as we do.
It’s a quick dump cake, a type of cake that’s dangerously easy as far as we’re concerned. You mix together pumpkin puree with a few spices and whatnot and pour it into a baking dish. (You could probably just mix it up in the baking dish if you were really looking to make your life easy.)
You then sprinkle some cake mix over the top, along with a drizzle of melted butter, and as it bakes the pumpkin filling and cake mix kind of co-mingle into a tiered cake that’s got everything we love about fall going on.
It’s warm, sweet, comforting… and the only thing that could possibly improve it is a scoop of ice cream. And family and friends to share it with. So why not take a little break from the traditional this season and set this out on the Thanksgiving table? Nobody will miss the pie, promise!
