I am always looking for new recipes and this recipe comes from a cousin of mine. It is a pleasant change from the normal pumpkin bars, pumpkin pie and even pumpkin cookies that we are so used to. It also makes a wonderful centerpiece with its bright orange color and white topping. Simply take it out of the pan and transfer into a pretty, clear bowl.
Here are the ingredients that you will need to make your praline pumpkin dessert:
1 fifteen ounce can of pumpkin ( not the pumpkin pie mix)
1 twelve ounce can of evaporated milk
3 large eggs
1 cup of white sugar
4 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 yellow or white cake mix
1 ½ cups of finely chopped nuts
¾ butter or margarine
This recipe will easily serve twelve people.
The first thing you need to do after you have your ingredients measured out is to beat together your pumpkin and milk in a large mixing bowl. A hand mixer is very handy for this recipe. When the milk and pumpkin are well blended, add the eggs, sugar, and cinnamon and beat until it is smooth.
Once beaten until smooth, pour the pumpkin mixture into a well greased 9 x 13 inch pan. Then sprinkle the dry cake mix over the top of the pumpkin mixture. Next, sprinkle the chopped nuts evenly over the cake mix. Then melt your butter or margarine and pour it over the nuts.
Bake your dessert at 350 degrees for fifty to sixty minutes. Top with whipped topping and serve. You can serve this dessert warm or chilled. Store it in your refrigerator or in a cool place.top class food
