About this recipe: This cake is delicious and quick and easy to make. A spiced pumpkin mixture is topped with sponge cake mix, scattered with pecans and drizzled with butter, before being baked. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream, for an indulgent dessert.
Hello fellow reviewers. I'm not an experienced dump cake maker or eater, BUT, the 20 or 30 that I've had from pumpkin to berry have all been the same hence the word DUMP in the recipe title. That's what makes this recipe such a wonderful thing. You mix your ingrediants, put them in a dish, and then DUMP the cake part on top. For the 1 star raters, if you MUST have a bottom to this DUMP cake and serve it on a plate, put some of the cake batter on the bottom of your dish. - 12 Jul 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
my co-workers certainly enjoyed this concoction, but to call it a cake is missleading. it's pumpkin pie filling with a crumb-cake topping. that's it. it doesn't turn into a cake in the oven (why did i think it would?) so if you want a twist on pumpkin pie, this is it. - 06 Dec 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I make this often, and always get great results! If I take it to work, it is gone by lunch! For a shortcut, I use Pumpkin Pie Spice and I just slice 1/2 cup butter over the top with the pecans! Comes out great every time! pp - 09 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
