Pumpkin Pie Dessert on {Meal Plan Mondays}

howtotrainasuperhero.comI can smell it now. Warm Pumpkin pie coming from my oven, courtesy of taste of home. Dipped in my homemade pumpkin pie spice and homemade evaporated milk. (we’ll talk about that later)

There are two things I love, saving my time and saving my money, so that I have more to give and less to think of.

Every homemaker is overjoyed when they find a good foodie that is quick, easy and yummy to add to their favorite’s. Well my friends, I can almost always count on taste of home to bring home my bacon. (Hmm??)

I stumbled across this recipe while doing my meal plan for the month. (I don’t think I ever make the same dessert twice!) And let me tell you! The results are well worth it!

My children gobbled it up and asked for more….I should have given them more, but you know I didn’t. LOL

I was a good girl…kudos to me.

Anyway. Today on Meal Plan Monday’s  I’d like to share one of my favorite fall recipe’s so far. I think I’d make this over and over again. It was just the right flavor and my hubby kept saying, “It taste like candy!!!”

Well there is one confession I should make. I never really fully follow a recipe. There I said it. This recipe called for walnuts and I used peanuts, because it’s what I had. But I should tell you that it’s good with walnuts, peanuts or nothing. I also made the cake upright and then decided it was better upside down. And the recipe called for yellow cake but I used french vanilla, because that’s what I had. I also used my own frozen pumpkin, but you have permission to use the can. LOL

Another confession: I hate boxed cake. I have no clue why I bought it and why I still have it. It honestly has moved with me this year! Ugh! But as I said, I HATE to waste my money. I like the bang that I can get for my buck. 😉

I literally just looked at this box of cake mix and saw that it expired this month! So I whipped me up some boxed cake dessert! HA!

I hope you enjoy this and share. SHARE!

Great Pumpkin Pie Dessert:

Adapted from Taste of Home


I can  pumpkin (15 oz-a little under 2 cups)

1 can evaporated milk (12 oz) (Stayed tuned in next Monday! We will make our own!)

3 eggs

1 cup sugar

4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice (Stayed tuned in next Monday! We will make our own!)

I box of yellow cake mix

3/4 cup melted butter

1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts or whatever you like

and ice cream to top it off!

1. In a large bowl, Mix the first five ingredients together until creamy.

2. Pour mixture into a greased 9×13 baking pan.( I used Baker’s Joy)

3. Sprinkle cake mix on top

4. Drizzle melted butter on top and then walnuts.

5. Bake at 350 degrees F for one hour or until knife in the middle comes out clean.

Serve with ice cream.

*This dessert comes out like pie, very soft texture. To make it upside down, sprinkle cake mix on the bottom of the pan and then drizzle the butter.Top the cake mix with walnuts and then pour the pie batter on top. Serve warm and with ice cream! Enjoy!

Do come back and tell me thoughts! And as always, with every recipe I post, I hope you’ll tuck this one away somewhere safe. Let me know how you love it!
