Alyssa Simpson's "Find"
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 can (15 oz) pumpkin puree
- 1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
- 3 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans (the original recipe called for 1/2 cup)
- 1 cup butter, melted
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease bottom of 9 x 13″ pan. Mix pumpkin, milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Pour mixture into greased pan. Sprinkle dry cake mix over pumpkin mixture and top with pecans. Drizzle melted butter over pecans. Bake 50-55 minutes.
*When we made this recipe we decreased the amount of pumpkin...only used about 2/3's of the can. The pumpkin wasn't overpowering! We also cut the baking time to 45-50 minutes... as we used a darker pan.
