Recipe: Pumpkin Stuff

My ‘signature’ dish for all work pot lucks is PUMPKIN STUFF.

It’s actually called pumpkin ‘crisp’, but it’s not very similar to apple crisp, so I’ve renamed it STUFF!

It’s AMAZINGLY delicious.  Even if you’re not a huge pumpkin fan, I encourage you to try it.

It’s also INSANELY easy to make!  Just dump stuff into a pan and BOOM!

Pumpkin Stuff
1 (15oz) can pumpkin
1 c. evaporated milk
1 c. sugar ßI’ve been using a little less, because 1 cup sugar is a lot!!
1 tsp. vanilla
½ tsp cinnamon
1 (18.25oz) package yellow cake mix
1 c. chopped pecans
1 c. butter (melted) ß wow, this is a lot of butter!  I think the last time I only tossed some of it down the drain
Whipped cream (optional)

Step 1:  Stir together the first 5 ingredients (pumpkin, evap milk, sugar, vanilla & cinnamon).  Pour into a greased 9X13 pan.  (Note – I’ve used smaller pans too.  It just makes the stuff thicker)

Step 2:  Sprinkle dry cake mix over mixture

Step 3:  Sprinkle evenly with pecans.  (Note – the last time I did this I couldn’t find pecans for a reasonable price at the store, so I just skipped them)

Step 4:  Drizzle melted butter evenly over mixture.  Feel your heart closing as you play with a full cup of melted butter!

Step 5:  Bake uncovered at 350 F for 45 minutes.  Dish is done when the top is golden brown.

Serve with whipped cream, because everything is better with whipped cream!

Dish can be stored at room temperature.  Actually, don’t worry about storing it, because there will be no leftovers!
