Great Pumpkin Desserts is a recipe I saved many years ago. This version is from Taste of Home. In America, this type of cake is known as a dump cake because you just “dump” all the ingredients in a pan and it bakes into a rich cake-like pastry.
Great Pumpkin Dessert is perfect for people who like the flavor of pumpkin but prefer cake over pumpkin pie. I think I fall into that category. I like pumpkin pie but would rather have the pumpkin in cake. This is kind of the best of all worlds.
