Pumpkin Squares

Just so you know, I'm over feeling self conscious about my pumpkin obsession.


1 yellow cake mix (set aside one cup for the topping)--I like Duncan Hines
1 stick butter, melted
1 egg


1 (29 oz) can pumpkin
2 eggs
2/3 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 t ginger
1/2 t salt


1 cup of cake mix
2 T sugar
1 t cinnamon
4 T (half a stick) butter

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan.

Combine crust ingredients and press into bottom of prepared pan.

Mix filling ingredients until smooth. Pour over crust.

Prepare topping by combining cake mix, sugar and cinnamon. Cut in butter until coarse crumbs form. Sprinkle over filling.

Bake 50 minutes, rotating pan halfway through if your oven needs it (mine gets a bit hotter in back, so I make a habit of rotating my baked goods). You'll know it's done when a cake tester comes out clean

Can you handle some constructive criticism? Post your recipes on Saturday. Then I can go to the store and buy the things I need to make them.

Right now I am contemplating surrendering my eternal salvation for a yellow cake mix.

Isn't it all about me anyway?

I'm definitely not complaining about your pumpkin obsession! I have been able to try most of them ...and they have all been excellent! I heard people raving about your pumpkin squares at the blessing! (Maybe I should become a food writer for you?)

I hear you are on vacation in St. George. Good job on running the half marathon.That is amazing. Just wanted to stop by to let you know that my family loved the 3 bean soup and cornbread recipe. It was excellent! I love stealing all of your yummy recipes.

We got home and my husband was so excited there were a few leftover :)
