Pumpkin Dessert

I tried out a new-to-me recipe for a pumpkin dessert. I found it on, where I was looking for something pumpkiny...but not pumpkin pie...since I always make that at Thanksgiving.

This is a good recipe, and an easy one.

Pumpkin Dessert

1 package yellow cake mix
1/3 cup butter melted
1 egg

1  29 oz. can pumpkin
1/2 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup milk
3 eggs
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Set aside 1 cup of cake mix.  Pour remaining cake mix into mixing bowl and stir in melted butter and 1 egg. Mix well and spread in a greased 9" x 13" pan.

Next, blend together pumpkin, brown sugar, milk, eggs and spices.  Mix well and pour over cake mix layer.

Mix reserved cake mix with sugar in a bowl and cut in 1/4 cup butter. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over pumpkin layer.

Add chopped walnuts over all.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 45 minutes until top is golden. 

Allow to cool and serve with a dollop of cool whip!

Some of the reviewers on the recipe site thought this dessert was too sweet. We didn't think so at all. The walnuts help balance out sweetness.

The leftovers held up well in the fridge for several days.
