Praline Pumpkin Dessert

This recipe is from Gina B (she got it from Betty Crocker)

It is fantastic…make this instead of pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving!


  • 1 can (15 oz) pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • 1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 4 teaspoons Pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 package Betty Crocker SuperMoist spice cake mix
  • 1 1/2 cups Chopped pecans
  • 3/4 cup Butter, melted
  • Whipped cream, if desired
  • Additional pumpkin pie spice, if desired


  1. Heat over to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease bottom and sides of a 13 x 9 pan.
  3. Beat pumpkin, milk, eggs, sugar, and 4 tsp pumpkin pie spice in medium bowl with wire whisk until smooth and pour into pan.
  4. Sprinkle dry cake mix over pumpkin mixture.
  5. Sprinkle with pecans.
  6. Pour melted butter evenly over top of dessert.
  7. Bake 50-60 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
  8. Cool slightly.
  9. To serve, cut dessert into 4 rows by 3 rows. Serve warm or chilled with dollop of whipped cream sprinkled with pumpkin pie spice.
  10. Store covered in refrigerator. (even better the next day!)
