How To Make Pumpkin Dump Cake
- First, grab your bowl and mix your pumpkin, pumpkin seasoning, sugar, milk, egg, and vanilla. Once you get the pumpkin base well-incorporated pour into your greased 9×13 pan.
2. Grab your yellow cake mix and sprinkle it evenly over the pumpkin mixture in the pan.
3. Next, grab your chopped pecans and sprinkle over the top of your cake mixture.
4. Follow up by slicing your butter into thin slices and laying all over the top of the cake.
5. Toss in the oven and bake for one hour at 350 degrees. When you stick a toothpick into the cake, and it comes out clean, your cake is done.
6. Allow the cake to cool slightly, and then serve. Feel free to add a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream. For added flavor sprinkle with cinnamon!

Should Pumpkin Dump Cake Be Refrigerated
Like other cakes, your Pumpkin Dump Cake doesn’t have to be refrigerated. Now if you had a filling in it like a peach cobbler, then I would recommend refrigerating a dessert like that. Some people prefer to refrigerate their dump cakes and then just eat chilled or even warm up in the microwave for a few minutes before serving.
