This Pumpkin Dump Recipe is one that I absolutely love! I have followed in my mothers footsteps when it comes to making different dishes and desserts for the holidays. It has always been a tradition to get the women together and make a bunch of goodies. We each have our own favorite foods to make. This dessert is one of my favorites to make each year for Thanksgiving and Christmas both.
My children and husband always request my Pumpkin Dump Cake each year and this year will be no different. I do recommend this dessert for when you are deciding what you can add to the list of goodies to make.
Not only is this delicious, but it also looks amazing! Of course the kiddos always help sprinkle the toppings on. It’s not only a way for them to learn to cook in the kitchen, but also a way to make memories with them. They can continue on with their children and make traditions as well.
I will share the recipe with you below. It is pretty simple and I honestly think that you will enjoy this dessert. Take it with you to your next family gathering. The recipe is on a recipe card for your convenience. Easy to Save or Print.
