Pumpkin Roll, Jack-o-lantern Poll, Winners: Newsletter October 16

Pumpkin Roll, Jack-o-lantern Poll, Winners: Newsletter October 16

With Halloween just around the corner, I want to share a song from one of my favorite October stories, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. This is another oldie from Disney and sung/narrated by Bing Crosby.


Okay, so I attempted a pumpkin roll and it was a disaster. I will continue to buy them rather than desecrate a delicious dessert. Instead, I will share my Pumpkin Dump cake recipe. Anyone can make this, and at the end, I add an even easier version!


  • 29 ounces pumpkin puree
  • 12 ounces evaporated milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 18 ounces yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 34cup melted margarine
  • whipped topping


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Mix pumpkin, milk, eggs, sugar, salt, and cinnamon.
  3. Pour batter into a greased 9 x 13 pan.
  4. Sprinkle cake mix over batter.
  5. Sprinkle pecans over cake mix.
  6. Drizzle melted margarine over all (I cheat and use the spray margarine).
  7. Bake for 50 minutes. (Toothpick should come out clean.)
  8. Top with Cool Whip, if desired.

If you are a complete nincompoop in the kitchen *waves hand* or have very little time, just buy ready to go pumpkin pie mix then top it with the cake mix, butter, and pecans. (No one will ever know, it will be our secret!)

So tell me a little bit about yourself. Take the 3 question survey and a random participant will win a $5 Amazon gift card. Winner will be notified by email and announced on the next newsletter!
