Last Minute Thanksgiving Dessert

kristen

So once again, I've found myself with extra guests for thanksgiving at the last minute...and so I've found myself calling my mother for advice!

In addition to saying I should buy an extra pre-cooked turkey breast to have on hand, she suggested this quick and easy dessert she had the other day at a luncheon and was delicious (and you should know she really doesn't care for pumpkin).

1 cup milk
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 squeeze of a lemon
1 can pumpkin (32oz)
1 box yellow cake mix
1.5 sticks of butter, melted
1 c pecans, crushed

Mix all ingredients save for butter, cake mix and pecans.

Pour mixture into 9x13 pan, sprinkle with yellow cake mix. Drizzle with the melted butter and garnish with pecans. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour. Cool and serve with whipped cream or ice cream.

Easy, fast, delicious!

Update: The pumkin cake was sooo good. And we had a great time, and yes, enough for leftovers :) Hope everyone had a great time!

You're lucky! I had waaaaay too much food left over. On top of that, I moved Saturday, so I was lugging all that extra food over to the new place...*sigh*

But, this recipe sounds really good! I think I'll give it whirl! Thanks for sharing!

Mmm. I wrote up a recipe for a pre-dinner snack: kettle corn with spices. It IS a football-watching day after all! Link
