Recipe of the Week: Pumpkin Crisp

Pumpkin Crisp

1 (15-oz.) can pumpkin
1 cup evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 (18.25-oz.) package butter-flavored yellow cake mix
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup butter, melted
whipped cream (optional)
Ground nutmeg (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350. Stir together first 5 ingredients. Pour into a lightly greased 13x9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle cake mix evenly with pecans. Drizzle butter evenly over pecans.

2. Bake at 350 for 1 hour to 1 hour and 5 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven, and let stand 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature with Whipped cream, if desired. Sprinkle with nutmeg, if desired.

From My Experience:
This recipe was so good! I made it for our small group last Thursday because I was feeling the October fever and wanted something with pumpkin power! It was a success. As you can see from the close-up picture, I added about a cup of uncooked oats on top. To me this has to be included to be called a "Crisp" plus it added to the crunchy topping. I left out the nutmeg since I didn't have any, and served it with vanilla ice cream. It was another easy and yummy recipe I will definitely make again, maybe soon!

  4. Thank you for the recipe. I hope you dont mind me adding that you have a beautiful family and the photograph above is one of the nicest Ive seen. I also kept my hair very long,college style when my children were babies. It is pretty but you would be stunning with a more progressive style. This is meant only as constructive as you are very beautiful in your current state of long hairedness.

    3. Seriously? You feel the need to critique the author's hairstyle? I've been a stylist for 37 years and she is stunning and doesn't need to change a thing! However you need a course in etiquette!

  5. Do you mix the cake mix in with everything else or sprinkle over mixed ingredients?

  6. Do you mix cake mix & pecans together & sprinkle over mixture in pan?

  7. I use this same recipe, but when it is cooled, I flip it over onto a platter. Mix 1 package of cream cheese, Cool Whip, and powdered sugar. Then spread over pumpkin. :)

  8. Do you mix the cake mix with the moist mix or sprinkle separately ?

  9. I would like to know if the author means for the cake mix and pecans both to be sprinkled over the first five ingredients (pumpkin mix )?

    ReplyDelete
  10. other sources: Mix first 5 ingredients, spread in pan. Sprinkle cake mix evenly over pumpkin in pan, then sprinkle pecans evenly over the cake mix.

  18. I can't eat nuts and am going to try and make this with extra oatmeal & some brown sugar in place of the pecans. I hope it turns out well! I love pumpkin! Thanks for the recipe :-)

  19. I was very interested in making this as it kooks like something my family would love. However, I'm not sure if I can take this recipe seriously due to the comments. A few people asked some legitimate question's ( ex. Was the cake mix to be sprinkled over the first 5 ingredients and then the pecans) that instruction was not clear in the directions. But.... The blogger NEVER responded.Makes you wonder if this whole thing is a joke. I will go elsewhere for a recipe for this that I can take seriously. It was a waste of time.....but hey ...the comments were funny!

  20. Made this for a church dinner-DELICIOUS!!!! Not too rich with a nice crisp topping. I followed Jake and Shae's version-no nutmeg and 1 cup of uncooked oats sprinkled on top. I highly recommend this recipe and will be making it again (and again and again.......) Thanks!

  24. I think you may have forgotten to add 3 eggs to the pumpkin mix. ??
    Will the pumpkin hold together without them? My recipe for this has eggs in it and just thought I should mention it before everyone makes their holiday dessert and it flops. I meant no harm here, just thought you may have overlooked the eggs in the recipe. I've been making this dessert for 22 years, but my is called Pumpkin Pie Crunch. And I haven't tried it with the oats, but sounds good.

  25. Should this be refrigerated or can it sit out overnight?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Can this bake in a bundt pan-then turned on to a cake plate?

  27. I'm not a fan anything pumpkin but love crisps. I made this as per the recipe with the addition of the oats. It was fantastic. All my family members agreed that this was a better choice than traditional pumpkin pie. I did leave it out overnight with no issues. I will be making this again.
