Pumpkin Dump Cake Recipe


I LOVE when the UPS man comes and brings me a package. It is really one of my most favorite things! Well my husband and I ordered some new phones (Hooray!) and as I was signing for the UPS man and he sniffed a little and said, “Oh Man, Your House Smells Good!” When food is cooking and someone comments…. you always know that is a good sign! Ha Ha! Thanks UPS man! You made my day! And if you are wondering… it tastes even better than it smells!

Pumpkin “Dump” Cake Recipe


15 ounce can pumpkin puree
10 ounces evaporated milk
1 cup brown sugar
3 eggs
3 teaspoons pumpkin spice
1 cup butter (melted)
1 cup graham crackers (crushed)
1/2 cup toffee pieces (I used Heath Bar Pieces)
1 yellow cake mix


Preheat to 350
Spray 9×13″ baking pan with cooking spray.
Combine pumpkin, milk, sugar, eggs and pumpkin spice. Stir to combine.
Pour into prepared pan, and sprinkle with cake mix, followed by the graham crackers and toffee.
Pour melted butter evenly on top.
Bake 45-50 mins until center is set and edges are browned.

Serve with icecream of whipping cream. (Or just eat it right out of the pan….not that I did that…. okay I ate it straight out of the pan and it was Delicious!)

    Funny how food sometimes is faddy like fashion. Way back in the 80’s is when “dump” cakes first appeared. I used to make different variations for almost everything. Then nobody made them anymore. I’ve been a hold out and make a dump cake a couple of times a year. They are quick, easy, inexpensive and delicious! Never made a pumpkin one though. SO goin to try this. Oh and to answer another commenters question….no, you do NOT prepare the cake mix, just sprinkle it on. THat’s why it’s called Dump cake, because you just dump the ingredients in the pan.

    I just tried a similar recipe but used spice cake instead of yellow. It was so delicious! My mom had it with yellow cake before and liked it better with the spice cake. But I’m sure it’s still delicious either way.

    OMGOSH!! I made these years ago, and lost the recipe, couldn’t remember what the recipe called for….thank God for Pinterest cuz I can’t believe I found this….been looking for so long and thought I wouldn’t find this recipe ever again. I don’t remember using heath or toffee bits….did the original recipe call for this? ♥ Can’t wait to make this again!!

    I LOVED this recipe! So yummy, especially the topping! I did add chocolate chips on top…Gotta have chocolate! LOL But next time I will add them in the middle and cook at a lower temperature for a little longer, the bottom was very gooey and the top was a little crispy.

    This sounds great with a Spice Cake mix. How about using “sugar/cinnamon graham crackers” instead of plain? And how about using a chocolate toffee candy bar broken in small pieces in place of plain toffee bits? Who don’t love a little chocolate! Yummy & gotta do it.
