  • 9x13-inch Baking Pan


  • 15 ounces pumpkin puree (1 can)
  • 10 ounces evaporated milk
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 15 ¼ ounces yellow cake mix (1 box)
  • 1 cup crushed graham crackers
  • ½ cup toffee pieces (Heath bar pieces)
  • cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup butter (melted)
  • 1 cup whipped topping (optional topping)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking pan (I used a glass pan) with non stick cooking spray.
  • Combine pumpkin, evaporated milk, brown sugar, eggs, and pumpkin spice. Stir to combine.
  • Pour this mixture into the prepared pan and then sprinkle the dry cake mix over all. Then top with graham cracker crumbs, toffee pieces, and pecans.
  • Then pour the melted butter evenly over the top.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes until center is set and edges are browned.
  • Let cool and then serve with a dollop of whipped topping on each piece.


There are lots of ways to add variety to this cake. Try any of these to change it up:
  • Use a spice cake mix instead of yellow cake mix
  • Try crushed Butterfingers candy bars on top instead of toffee
  • Cinnamon sugar graham crackers instead of plain graham crackers
  • Walnuts or any favorite nut instead of pecans (also consider adding nuts to the pumpkin mixture)
  • Add chocolate chips on top or in between the layers
  • Top with vanilla ice cream However you choose to transform it, we know you’ll love this Pumpkin Dump Cake. Who would want to pass up on pumpkin pie flavor with a delicious crunch on top?
