Best D*@$% Pumpkin Dessert Period

Sorry for the harsh language but stay with me. I wanted a yummy, different pumpkin dessert last weekend for the night before Halloween when we came home from the pumpkin patch. I googled "best pumpkin dessert ever" and tried a result that happened to be called "best [bad word that starts w/ a "d"] pumpkin dessert period." It was a hit (you'll see why when you read the ingredients) and has been requested for the Thanksgiving spread. You may want to give it a whirl! It's easy peasy and definitely one for special occasions.

CRUST:

1 Box of yellow cake mix (Reserve 1 cup and set aside)
Add to the cake mix 1 melted stick of butter or margarine, 1 beaten egg, and ½ cup of chopped walnuts. Mix well. Spread mixture in a 9x13 greased baking pan.

FILLING:

Mix together: 1 large can of pumpkin, 4 beaten eggs, ½ cup of brown sugar, ½ cup sugar, 2/3 cup of Evaporated milk, 2 ½ tsp of cinnamon, 1 tsp of nutmeg, ¼ tsp salt. Spread the filling over the crust.

TOPPING:

Mix together until crumbly: the reserved 1 cup of cake mix, ½ cup sugar, ½ cup of walnuts, ½ stick of softened butter or margarine. Crumble the topping over the filling.

Bake @ 350 for 50-60 minutes. Cool and serve with whipped cream on top.

HPS, so funny because i made the same thing on Halloween night! I put this recipe on WFDD last year under "Pumpkin Pie Cake". We had it brought to us when we had RA. I agree...very yummy, esp. the crust!

Donnie, Pumpkin Pie Cake is probably a way better name for it! Now that you mention it, I vaguely remember you posting that!!!!
