It’s October now — which for some means carving pumpkins and decorating the house with spiderwebs, but for me, when the fall comes all I want to do is bake pumpkin desserts. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin mousse — oh man I love pumpkin.

Here is a recipe that not only takes 15 minutes to prepare, but it’s easy enough to make a couple trays of — perfect for that last minute thanksgiving dessert. Or maybe just a backup batch for you in case your family eats the first one.

Ingredients:

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup plus 4 tablespoons softened butter
  • 1 (15 ounce can) pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350. Spray or grease a 9×13 pan.

Reserve 1 cup of cake mix. In a large box, combine remaining cake mix with 1 beaten egg and 1/2 cup of melted butter. Mix well and pat into pan, covering the bottom surface entirely.

In a large bowl, mix the pumpkin, 3 beaten eggs, 1/2 cup white sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon. Pour over the crust.

In another bowl, combine the remaining cake mix with 1/2 cup sugar and 4 tablespoons of softened butter. Crumble over the filling.

    I loooove this idea. I think I’m tired of all the other same-old orange things we have to make this season (pumpkin pie sweet potato pecan pie bloo blaa) but THIS brings a nice seasonal dessert to contrast and compliment the usual holiday treats. Brilliant!

    This looks so good! And you’re right…it’d be PERFECT for Thanksgiving. We have so many people over that an easy dessert like this would be a godsend.

    I’ll probably need to make in advance for sampling… :)

    Oh my god, this sounds so delicious. I’m pretty sure I’m going to be making a pumpkin layer cake this weekend, but I might have to change my tune and try this out!
