This recipe comes from my Pastor’s wife, Allison. She brought it to a dinner we had at church, and trust me; it is delicious!!
1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup melted shortening
1 large can pumpkin (4 cups)
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 oz. evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla
Remove 1 cup of cake mix and set aside for topping. Mix remainder of mix with 1 egg and melted shortening. Press into a 9 X 13 ungreased cake pan.
Mix pumpkin, 3 eggs, cinnamon, milk, brown sugar and vanilla. Pour over cake mixture. Combine topping ingredients: 1/4 cup shortening, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup chopped nuts, 1 cup cake mix to make a crumble and sprinkle over the top. Bake in a 350 oven for 1 hour.
Just in time for Thanksgiving, this is wonderful even if you don’t like pumpkin!!
