i'm in charge of desserts and rolls for our thanksgiving dinner.
of course, pecan pie is on my list.
it's mandatory and i must admit,
i make a mean pecan pie.
and just in case anyone out there is looking for
another last minute thanksgiving dessert idea,
here's what else i'm making:
pumpkin pie cake.
i've never been a huge fan of pumpkin pie,
but i feel like pumpkin something should be on the table.
so when a co-worker said she had an amazing pumpkin cake recipe
i thought i would give it a try.
here's what you'll need:
1 can of pumpkin
1 C evaporated milk
1 1/2 C sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick butter
mix the pumpkin, milk, sugar, eggs, and all the spices
together until well blended.
pour into a 9x13 pan and
sprinkle the box of cake mix on top.
melt the stick of butter and
pour over cake mixture.
top with chopped pecans.
bake for 45 minutes at 350
(or until it passes the toothpick test)
ENJOY! and have a happy thanksgiving.
now excuse me,
i have some baking to do.
