Pumpkin Dessert

I obtained this recipe from a girlfriend in Rochester, MN. It is one of the desserts her family makes every Thanksgiving. It is so good I make it once or twice a year and always end up sharing the recipe. Enjoy!

2 cans pumpkin or equivalent in homemade pumpkin
1 lg can evaporated milk
4 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp salt
1 yellow cake mix
1/2 cup butter melted
1 cup pecans

Mix together first 9 ingredients and put in a greased 9 x 13 pan or two small brownie pans. Mix cake mix and melted butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over top of first mixture. Add pecans.
Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees. May serve with Cool Whip.
This makes a very large dessert. I usually split it in half and pour into two small brownie pans. It is great to take one to a party or work and leave the other at home.

This sounds great Teresa! I love the idea of splitting it up - one to take and one to keep. Can't wait to make it.

This sounds delicious, I don't think I've tried anything similar. I'll definitely give it a try! :) Thanks for guest blogging!!!
