Culinary Flattery and Pumpkin Cinnamon Dump Cake

One person at our Friday Family Fellowship group told me he only eats dessert on Friday nights, when he knows I'll bring some marvelous creation. That, my friends, is the sincerest form of culinary flattery. And it will get you everywhere with me, dessert-wise. So will second helpings with a smile.

Last Friday, we all lingered together about an hour over pumpkin cinnamon dump cake. Anyone really can make this delicious dish. Pour directly into a greased 9" X 13" pan the following, in order: 1 can evaporated milk; 3 eggs, beaten, mixing it slightly with the milk, so that it is evenly distributed; 1 cup sugar; a large can fresh pumpkin; and 4 tspsns pumpkin pie spice. Sprinkle a yellow cake mix evenly over the top of the pumpkin layer. Thinly slice a cube of butter over the cake mix layer. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top of it all, and bake for 45 minute at 350 degrees.

Serve with whipped cream and wait a week before you have dessert again. Better to enjoy 1 rich dessert weekly, than to partake of 3 or 4 bland disappointments.
