Dump cake ... not the most eloquent name for a dessert, but it's A-MAZ-ING!
I grew up with all kinds of fruit-flavored dump cakes making their appearance at church potlucks or after Sunday dinner. Dump cakes are simple, decadent, and always a crowd pleaser.
This Pumpkin Dump Cake
is no exception.
Straight pumpkin out of the can isn’t really that appetizing, so I added some cinnamon and sweetened it up a bit with some simple ingredients. But once you’ve doctored up the pumpkin a little, let the dumping begin!
First, dump your sweetened pumpkin mixture into a baking dish. Then dump a cake mix evenly over the pumpkin layer. Dump some melted butter on top and you're ready to bake this beauty!
The smell of the pumpkin and spices baking will bring fall right into your house. This is a great alternative to your everyday pumpkin pie, for those of you who want to switch it up a bit.
The result is a creamy pumpkin layer topped with a buttery crust.
Enjoy this pumpkin dessert with some whipped cream or a big scoop of ice cream. The name might not be elegant, but it'll totally impress your friends and family!
