  • 1 box yellow cake mix can use white cake mix instead
  • 1 stick butter softened to room temperature
  • 30 oz. can pumpkin pie mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 can evaporated milk (12 oz each)


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Use a pastry cutter or the back of a fork to mix the butter into the cake mix. Mixture will be dry and crumbly - that's perfect!
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin pie mix, eggs and evaporated milk until well blended. Pour into a greased 9X13 pan. Sprinkle the cake mix/butter mixture evenly over the top and then bake for one hour. The top should be a light golden brown color.
  • Serve warm with some vanilla ice cream or cool to room temperature and then refrigerate and serve cold. I prefer it cold, but it's delicious either way!
