Pumpkin Crunch Cake Recipe

Printable Recipe
Hi, I'm taking a break from my crafting to post a recipe my niece made for Thanksgiving.  It was sooo good, I can't even begin to tell you!   I have been on a pumpkin kick lately.  I went to Berlin, Ohio a few weeks back with my parents and we ate at the Dutch Valley Restaurant on our way there.  Well I ordered a Pumpkin Latte.  It was the BEST Latte I have ever had!  In fact I just found a recipe for a Pumpkin Latte, so I will give it a try, and if it's good, I'll post it soon!   So anyhow here is a pic of the Pumpkin Crunch Cake and the recipe.  I hope you love it as much as I did.

Pumpkin Crunch Cake

 1-(15 oz.) Can Pumpkin
1-(12 oz) Can Evaporated Milk
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Cup Sugar
3 Eggs,  Beaten
1 Box Yellow Cake Mix
1 Cup Chopped Pecans
2 Sticks Butter, Cut into pieces

In a large mixing bowl, whisk pumpkin, evaporated milk, cinnamon, and sugar until mixed well.  Add eggs and mix well. 

Pour mixture into a 9x13 baking dish that has been sprayed with a non stick spray.  Sprinkle cake mix evenly over the top.  Sprinkle pecans evenly over cake mix and top with butter pieces.  Bake at 350 degrees F. for 50-60 minutes.  Set aside to cool.

Shop Small! Small Business Saturday

Today is dedicated to supporting small businesses.  It's a way to show your support of the moms and pops stores.  Its a day to purchase a unique gift from that local artist.  Go to that little coffee shop down the street, or bakery.  Small Business Saturday started in 2010, although I think everyday should be Small Business Day! Ha!  So go out (or stay in) and Shop Small!

Have a great weekend!

We just finished up our last craft show. This is a picture of our booth. I share the booth with my mom so some of the items are hers. Thank you to everyone that stopped by to visit us! It has been a busy time and I'm taking inventory so I can...believe it or not start getting ready for next year! I know there are several items that I need to do a lot more of because I sold out of them so fast!

I am working on setting up my website for the big online Christmas Craft Show next weekend Nov. 11,12, 13th. Be sure to stop by to see whats new and maybe do some Christmas shopping the easy way... in your home!
