Pumpkin Crunch Cake {Southern Pumpkin Dump Cake}


Dump Cakes aka One Pan Bible Study Cakes are one of the staples of southern living and this  Pumpkin Crunch Cake Recipe falls under this heading and then some. 

Hi, A Southern Fairytale readers, I’m Kim from Today’s Creative Blog where you’ll find the top creative blogs full of inspiration.

Once the leaves start changing, my husband and son start asking for this dessert. I received it from a neighbor of mine a few years ago. It’s also a favorite with my ladies bunco group. This has become a quick, easy and my “go-to” dessert for the winter months. You get that yummy pumpkin taste without the hassle of making a pumpkin pie.

You’ll get Major Bonus Points for serving this with homemade Brown Sugar Amaretto Whipped Cream or Blue Bell Vanilla Ice Cream.
