Easy Pumpkin Cake

My son Owen’s dream  for the last couple of years has been to grow a pumpkin. Last year’s crop didn’t make it past July. This year, one hardy pumpkin is holding on. You can see we put chicken wire over it to keep the eager possums and squirrels away.

This cake recipe is much easier than growing a pumpkin. It’s another from the 1983 Faith Evangelical Church cookbook I’ve been perusing lately. I love this as it’s a cake mix recipe.

1 large can pumpkin

1  13 oz. can evaporated milk

4 tsp. pumpkin spice or 2 tsp. cinnamon & 1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1 C. sugar

3 eggs

2 tsp. salt

Yellow cake mix

3/4 C. butter or margarine

9×13″ cake pan   350F   50 minutes

Mix and pour first 7 ingredients into (ungreased) pan. Pour yellow cake mix over that. Melt butter and pour on top of cake mix. Bake.

Be sure butter or margarine covers all the dry cake mix.
