This recipe goes way back for us! It’s become a Halloween / Thanksgiving dessert office treat, not to mention a wonderful holiday dessert for our family. Sometimes we even make it instead of the old standby – Pumpkin Pie.

Whenever you decide to make it – I promise everyone will rave. You need to wave your magic wand over it and that usually works to take out all the calories! 🙂 Which are well worth each and every one.

Besides being delicious this is one of the most easy dessert recipes I know of. Takes about 10 minutes to assemble and then bake for 40 – 45 minutes.

Pumpkin Dessert

1 large can pumpkin
3 eggs, fork beaten
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. nutmeg
½ tsp. allspice
¼ tsp. ginger
1 pkg yellow cake mix
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup chopped nuts

Mix the first eight ingredients and spread into a 9” x 13” Pyrex pan. Sprinkle cake mixture over first ingredients. Melt the cup of butter and drizzle over the cake and other mixture. Run a knife crosswise through the cake batter to get it to mingle a little better with the other ingredients. Sprinkle 1 cup of nuts over the top. We use walnuts.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes. Serve warm with whipped or ice cream.
