Friday's Grand Connection Fun

Fall is finally here and that makes me think of pumpkins!

Do you have a favorite recipe that uses pumpkin? One of our family's favorites is for pumpkin pie cake (see below). You and your grandchildren might enjoy making one together this weekend!

Pumpkin Pie Cake

4 eggs slightly beaten
1 sixteen-ounce can pumpkin
1 ½ cup sugar
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. salt
1 13 oz. can evaporated milk
1 box yellow cake mix
1 cup chopped nuts
2 sticks baking margarine

Mix the first six ingredients and then pour into ungreased 9 x 13 pan. Sprinkle with cake mix. Melt margarine and pour on top. Add nuts. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 ½ hours.  Delicious!!!!!!
