It's Also Good For Breakfast.

Pumpkin Crisp, y'all...you must try this simple and delicious recipe. I love anything with pumpkin in it, and this dish is a perfect fall dessert.

Pumpkin Crisp

1 15 oz. can pumpkin
1 cup evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 package butter-recipe yellow cake mix (I use Duncan Hines.)
1 cup chopped pecans
2 sticks butter, melted

Stir together first 5 ingredients. Pour into a lightly greased 13x9-inch baking dish.

Sprinkle cake mix evenly over pumpkin mixture; sprinkle evenly with pecans. Drizzle butter evenly over pecans.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let stand 10-15 minutes before serving.
Serve warm or at room temperature with whipped cream, if desired. (You desire it. You do!)

*Yes, I did have this for breakfast last Saturday. With some pumpkin spice coffee. It was a beautiful way to start my day, indeed!

I love pumpkin...anything! too bad it is only seasonal here and they still haven't started selling it yet. Once they do, I am going to buy a bunch, then cook it, puree it and put in the freezer for future recipes! All these recipes online are making me want some so bad!!!

If I ever find pumpkin I will make those, but I don't have cake mix either... hmm I will have to figure something out.

Amy said...

That looks simple enough for even me to make. My husband would might keel over if I baked something. I think I'm going to try cause you showed pictures. I love that!

heathersister said...

Mmmmmm, sounds delightful. I love your pumpkin plate!

Sissy said...

Love that pumpkin plate and that Pampered Chef pan. Wow, lots of P's. Looks good, Lula, but I am sure that is not on my diet!

Caroline said...

Ooooh, that looks so delicious. We love pumpkin stuff here. Do you have to serve it on a cute little pumpkin plate though, cause if you do, then I'm in trouble.

In other news...

I AM GOING TO DIE! Eclipse and Breaking Dawn don't arrive until SATURDAY!!!! I am totally kicking myself for not doing the 2-day delivery. AAAAAAAACKKKK! In the interim, I am taking a little looksee at Midnight Sun. I figure it can't harm my relationship with Edward - I am getting to know him better. It might be time to go to the meadow soon if you know what I mean! =)

ParentingPink said...

Wow! This looks super yummy! I'll have to try it!

KimmyJ said...

I am so making this! Thanks for sharing, you popular girl you!

sassy stephanie said...

I love this recipe. I made it once with no pecans since I was out of them, and it just wasn't the same.

I HAVE to eat it warm with whipped cream.

And for breakfast? Um, yea.

Heather said...

Can we have some of this in November? Pleeeeassse?

I am so running to the store today for these ingredients. It's 50 degrees outside, Gabe is sick with a chest cold, and this would be a perfect companion to some homemade beef stew.

My mouth is watering already!

Heather said...

On a pumpkin plate, no less. Brilliant. I have to go to the grocery store today and have put pumpkin, pecans and a cake mix on my list.

Genie Marie said...

I am so going to the store to get the stuff to make this...and I will have to drive the 20 minutes to the closest Starbuck's to get my all time favorite, Pumpkin Spice Latte, to go with it. Have fun in Vegas!!!

TattooedMinivanMom said...

That looks soooo good! Will definitely try it. I'm stoked the Pumpkin Spice Latte is back at Starbux! Love fall! Pissed that it was over a 100' yesterday!

Previous comment said "Have fun in Vegas". I'm going to Vegas too!

Mama Dawg said...

Sounds delish.

Lauren W said...

Definitely trying this when I get all of my bakeware back!
Also, I'll be needing some information about those pumpkin plates.

Kim said...

I can attest to it being wonderful. My dear friend Lula brought me some and I had it for breakfast Sunday morning! Yummy!

Brandy said...

Yum! I used all my canned pumpkin over the weekend making yet another pumpkin cake but I'm getting more and making THIS!!

And I'm guessing you shop at Food Club??

Nik said...

Oh good night! I *HAVE* to try this!

Vicki said...

I know this has to be good. I made a pumpkin spice dump cake last week and it was one of the best I have ever made. Enjoy the Fall divine!

Rhea said...

I really like your baking dish.

Swirl Girl said...

i've never been a pumpkin fan...can you sub apples or pears?

Steph at The Red Clay Diaries said...

Ooohhh. This looks good. I think I have all ingredients on hand. Must make it TONIGHT.

Thanks!

Gina said...

I am guilty of the sin of coveting. I want your plates! I may try this recipe soon.

{i}Post said...

Yum! I will have to give that a try, for sure!

Live.Love.Eat said...

Ok, you know how I feel about you & then you go making something delish and posting a recipe!!!! Yippie!!!! I will HAVE to make this!!

CaraBee said...

That sounds so yummy! I love pumpkin pie, but making it crumbly too? Sheer genius. I can't wait to try this recipe!

Tiffany said...

That sounds fabulous. Let's make it in I da ho.

Mrs. S said...

This looks AMAZING! I, too, love everything pumpkin. Oh yum yum yum.

Jyl @ MommyGossip said...

Hey there! It's been a while. I have been offline for a few days--with the exception of our twitter girl's night out. You gotta join in on the fun there.

Anyway... first, I want to say that I loved your post below this one. Seriously, who does look that great post-pregnancy? And, your pic was soooo sweet! I love those first pics with our babes.

And now... when are you going to come over here and handle breakfast for my family. Seriously, there are only 4 of us. We are appreciative. The boys only fight every hour or so. And, we even have our own pumpkins in the garden. Honestly... don't you want to fly cross country to UT for a visit? We have 4 bedrooms in the basement waiting for you and your fam! Come on over. Halloween is fun here :)

Finally... congrats on your new award from Sunshine & Lemonade. I am listening to Pop-U-lar as I write this comment.

Happy October!

Kat said...

I have that same Pampered Chef pan. I love that they did it in colors other than the vanilla. And look at your cutey pumpkin plates.

And this recipe looks delish. Except I must leave out the pecans. Or only put in in half. Or something.

JourneytoFamily said...

I love pumpkin too. Are you really surprised by that?

You know what's good? Every Fall, William Sonoma sells a pumpkin bundt cake mix. I add chocolate chips and make them into mini muffins, sprinkling them with powdered sugar. They are awesome!

Heather said...

Girrrlll, this was absolutely fantabulous!!!!

Yes, I went out to the store, dragging a snotty nosed Gabe along, just to buy these ingredients. Then I came home and baked it right up. It's already half gone.

I did have my MIL over for dinner, and she loved it, too. So I sent her home with some. 'Cause my bootay does not need two sticks of butter all by itself, know what I'm sayin?

Hope you're having a great time!

Debbie said...

Leigh Anne that looks so PMS pleasing! And I love that cute pumpkin plate. So festive!

Veggie Mom said...

Oh, gracious me! Is this similar to Apple Crisp? Looks delish--I'ma gonna try this immediately, if not sooner!

Kim said...

By the way, I use pretty much the same recipe for peach cobbler/crunch or apple. Just substitute canned peaches, for the pumpkin. It is yummy, but not as yummy as the pumpkin! Of course, you can use, apple pie filling, cherry pie filling etc. It is all good!!

Thanks Lula for telling us about the pumpkin! It was way better than any of the fruity ones!

Looks sinfully fattning...Must be good!

The Nice One said...

That looks amazing! I am going to have to whip that up for my kiddos this weekend.

Love the plate!

Steph at The Red Clay Diaries said...

Made it! Loved it! Already eaten 2/3 of it. (with the help of 2 kids! What, you think I'm a pig?)

Very very yummy. Makes me think of upside-down pumpkin pie.

I even mentioned it in a post and linked back here. Maybe your recipe can touch the lives of others. :)

angie said...

I make this for Thanksgiving. I could clean a whole pan. So yummy.
