Pumpkin Dump Cake

Beth Pierce


This scrumptious easy crust-less Pumpkin Dump Cake is like eating the best part of the pumpkin pie topped with a crunchy cinnamon pecan topping. The base is super quick to come together as it is all mixed in one bowl. The topping has three simple ingredients that take less than five minutes to prepare. I love to take this treat to potlucks, family reunions, fall and holiday parties. It is always a big hit and I always come home with an empty dish.
