At our house we love pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin bars, and of course pumpkin cake.
If you have available a real pumpkin, cut it in half remove the seeds and bake it for one hour at 350 degrees. Then peel it and process the pumpkin meat in your food processor. Use the pulp in any recipe calling for pumpkin. Two cups equals 1 small can.
Or do it the easy way like I usually do. Simply purchase a couple of 15 oz cans of pumpkin.
For a different cake, you will enjoy this one that is popular at our table.
Combine and mix well:
1 large can 29 oz pumpkin (or 2 small 15 oz cans)
1 can evaporated milk
3 eggs beaten
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
Mix well and pour into a 9x13 pan
Sprinkle over the top 1 package dry yellow cake mix
Pour 3/4 cup melted Margarine (or butter) over the dry cake mix.
Sprinkle 1 cup chopped walnuts on top of the butter and bake 50 minutes at 350 degrees or until the pumpkin is set. Remove and cool. Enjoy.
