Ingredients

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 3 eggs (1 egg for the crust/2 eggs for the filling)
  • 1 stick of butter (1/4 cup of butter for the crust and the remaining for the filling)
  • 2 cups of pumpkin
  • 1 cup of white sugar (1/2 cup for the filling/1/2 cup for the crumb topping)
  • 2/3 cup of milk (I used almond milk and it was delicious)
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup of butter, melted

Directions

Save 1 cup of the cake mix. In a medium bowl, mix together remaining cake mix, 1 egg, and 1/4 cup of butter. Press firmly batter into a 9″x13″ greased baking pan. Combine pumpkin, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup of sugar, and milk in another bowl. Spread over the batter. Combine the reserved cake mix, 1/2 c sugar, cinnamon, and 1/4 c of cooled butter. Crumble over the pumpkin layer. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Cool before cutting into bars.
