Pumpkin Pecan Dump Cake

Pecans aren’t necessary for this recipes, but it gives it something a little bit special that the other pumpkin dump cakes don’t have.

Pecans remind me of the fall and winter. It seems like they are in all kinds of fall and holiday foods.

Pecans have the highest fat content of any nut, but it’s the good kind of fat. They have protein and vitamin E.

My sister-in-law makes candied pecans for my husband every year for a Christmas gift. He loves them! He eats them as a sweet snack or adds them to his salads at dinner.

  • pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
  • brown sugar
  • vanilla cake mix (yellow cake mix works too)
