Great Pumpkin Dessert Recipe

I rely on canned pumpkin and a yellow cake mix to fix this effortless alternative to pumpkin pie. It's a tried-and-true dessert that always elicits compliments and requests for the recipe. —Linda Guyot, Fountain Valley, California

MY REVIEW

I make this a lot. I love it with chocolate drizzled on it.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 24, 2013

I didn't have good luck with this recipe - by the time the filling was cooked, the topping and nuts were over cooked and it didn't hold together well when cut; however, the flavor was great.

One of our favorites. I have been making this for a few years and have not had a failure yet! Very easy too.

Oh my word this was so good! Only thing I did different is I used a teaspoon and a half of cinnamon and a teaspoon and a half of nutmeg bc I didn't have any pumpkin pie spice...between two of us we ate a third of the pan in one night!

I made this recipe to take to my Mother-in-law's Birthday Party, just because I wanted to try it. Everyone loved it! I am planning on making another one to take to my school for our Thanksgiving day staff party. It's so easy and so good!
