Let’s talk about something that’s real important, k?
Lately, it seems super cool to be all anti-pumpkin. I mean, it also seems super cool to be obsessed with pumpkin, which is why the anti-pumpkin people are coming out in full force to say “no, we will not stand for pumpkin spice macaroni and pumpkin spice shoelaces.” But, guys. I’m getting nervous.
I feel like we’re about to have a full on Grease-style feud between two rival gangs and it’s stressing me out.
Can’t we all just get along? Can’t we all just eat or not eat our pumpkin in peace, like respectable adults?
Now, you miiiiiiiight have noticed that I’m on Team Pumpkin Everything. I mean, it’s pumpkin. Why anyone would say no to that is beyond me, but whatever. You do you.
• 1 can (15 oz) pumpkin
• 1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
• 3 large eggs
• 1 1/2 cups sugar
• 1 t. cinnamon
• 1/2 t. salt
• 1 box yellow cake mix
• 1 c. pecans, chopped
• 1 c. butter, melted
• Cool Whip
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. (I used my mixer for this step.) Pour into a greased 13×9 baking dish.
Run cake mix through a sifter to get lumps out and sprinkle dry cake mix evenly over pumpkin mixture. Top with pecans. Drizzle melted butter over pecans. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until golden brown. Cool. Serve chilled (or warm). Top with a dollop of whipped topping.
