I found out late last night that my eldest sister's dog of 12 years passed away. My heart broke for her so this morning when I got up I started thinking of a good comfort food that I could make and bring to her. I decided that pumpkin dump cake would be a great and delicious option. So, Molly, this post is for you.
First I started off by greasing a 9x13 pan and turned the oven onto 350 degrees. Then you take a pan of pumpkin and mix it with 1 1/2 cups sugar, 1 Tbsp of pumpkin spice, and 1 (12oz) can of evaporated milk. Pour this mixture into the 9x13 dish. I then take a box of yellow cake mix and mix 1 cold stick of butter in with it then dump on top of the pumpkin. (Hence the name dump cake.). Put cake in oven for 50 minutes or until the cake is a dark golden brown. Wait for the cake to cool, then slice and enjoy! You can really use any mixture you want. I have used pineapple and yellow cake mix before and it turned out great as well!
