During my fall baking binge, I found a recipe which I adapted from myblessedlife. It is called Pumpkin Crunch Cake. I changed the name for mine to: Pumpkin Crumb Cake. I believe this tastes more like a crumb cake. This is one of the most delicious desserts I have ever made or tasted. I knew it was good when my boyfriend raved about it non-stop and witnessed a lot of nibbling going on, which he was trying to sneak in without me noticing. This is a year round treat that tastes delectable with coffee or hot chocolate. Not to mention, this is super easy and requires minimal ingredients, which most might already be in your home! This tastes wonderful cool or my favorite, warmed up with a big heaping spoonful of whipped topping! Try making this and your taste buds will be thanking you indefinitely!
All the ingredients. I accidentally placed flour in there, it is supposed to be sugar instead. I was doing too much baking that day!
First combine pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl
Use a mixer to blend all the ingredients together
Pour the mixture into a 9in by 13in glass baking dish and sprinkle the vanilla cake mix on top
Add the 1 cup of chopped pecans on top
Drizzle the melted butter on top of the chopped pecans
How the dish will look before entering the oven
Place in oven and bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes
Look at this golden brown goodness!
Let cool and serve adding whipped topping
This is so delicious with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate
