Pumpkin Dump Cake

Pumpkin Dump Cake is made with few ingredients but is big on flavor. Canned pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar and pumpkin pie spice (recipe follows) are mixed together. This mixture is poured into a baking dish and topped with dry cake mix. This is the step when you can get creative. The recipe calls for a yellow cake mix but you can substitute a butter recipe, pecan, carrot cake or spice cake mix. Same goes with the nuts, substitute walnuts, macadamia nuts, heck throw in some cinnamon flavored chips! Get nuts:)
