Great Pumpkin Dessert
Total TimePrep: 5 min. Bake: 1 hour
its amazing that something this good is so easy! I realize I’m a little off season, but I’ve been baking from my pantry since the shutdown. (i actually used a Christmas colored funfetti cake mix) We loved this, and gobbled every bit of this homey, comforting dessert, red and green sprinkles included! VFE
Made it and my whole family of six loved it! Even my 8 year old liked it!
The pumpkin part on the bottom was very good. The cake mix part on the top was awful. Way too sweet, and dry in parts even though I drizzled the butter more evenly that in the video. We scrapped it off and ate only the bottom half.
I don’t remember where I originally found this recipe, but this is the BEST and EASIEST dessert. Whenever I make it, people always ask for the recipe. In fact, I’m sending to someone I work with right now; brought it to the Christmas luncheon, and it was a hit as always. I wouldn’t change anything about this unless there is a nut allergy issue. Enjoy!
It's an upside down pumpkin pie! Had I known this, I would have tapped down my walnuts a bit after sprinkling them. It's tricky distributing that melted butter all over, but it'll give your "crust" better adhesion. I used 3/4 cup sugar - the perfect amount in my opinion.
I substituted cake mix with gluten free cake mix and almonds for walnuts. The temperature is way to high for this dessert. I would do 350 for about 30 min and then lower to 325. If you leave in for whole hour at 350, it’s gonna burn the top. Mine did not come out like the video. Very disappointed.
Made this several times. So good. We like it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
This was excellent! I used pecans instead of walnuts and sprinkled a little brown sugar over the nuts and they candied perfectly! Will make again and again.
Cant click the stars but it's definitely 5 or more. Easy to make and soooooo tasty. Will be making this for all holidays AND everyday for us.
eassy and so yummy
