hmmmmmmm thinking ......
"Sprinkle dry cake mix over the top.
Scatter nuts over the top of the cake mix
Drizzle melted butter over the top getting as much as you can moistened." 
Doesn't exactly sound like a cup cake pan would work.  It's
back to the19x13 pan.

(I wonder if I'll ever get it right)

of course you can use a cup cake pan or little glass baking cups like when you make custard, you just have to divid it up.

Penny - did you read the entire recipe?  I think those ingredients, especially the butter, would be almost impossible to divide somewhat evenly between 24 cupcakes
Someone more skilled and patient than I could probably do it - not me

nikki;  i suppose you add walnuts instead of pecans        right although all around me right now there are more pecans than i could use in the rest of my life---------i can't pick them up any more or shell them         my b.i.l. will bring me all i will use to make stuff for him          but i prefer walnuts nancy,  i just found duncan hines cake mix at kroger for $1.00 each

I am a Pecan  fan (not pronounced pee-can, that's what truckers use...).
Send some of your pecans to me...Nancy could use some as well I am sure.
Add some toasted pecans to some glazed carrots and parsnips.  Great combo.
 I like to sprinkle some on salads as well.

nikki, can this be turned out  of the pan         or should it just be  scooped out by serving i guess i should make it in a glass pan
Posted by nellie v


This does bake up firm enough once it has cooled that I have cut it and placed it in plastic storage containers for people to take home.
I would not turn it upside down on a serving platter just because some of the top may break up.  sometimes part of the top remains a bit crumbly if it has not been moistened with the butter.  But that is the only reason I would not turn it out.  It would stay together so I guess it could be turned out like an upside down cake.  I like the crunchy crumble so I like to keep it dry and crunchy.
Heck any way this is served it is good!

you are all welcome to all the pecans you would like        you just have to come and pick them up
most neighbors in this subdivision   a pecan orchard w/ delicious 3" papershells have aged out of trying to pick them up themselves       so every week-end people come around and get all they want

i had to quit walking to my sister's house a few yrs ago because i couldn't control the habit of not walking past the nuts      she had 7 huge trees     ike took one out
but the pecans always get picked up and used

The invite is so tempting but I think the cost of gas would negate the price savings on the pecans!
I wonder if a pecan tree would do well in Illinois?..may have to check that out.

Checked it out...they are hearty in zone 5 but need 6 to 8 hours of sun...I have that and fertilizer should be applied in February...I can do that.  I just might have to get myself a pecan tree.  It did say they can grow to 100 feet.  I think I will be long gone before that happens!

I just love pumpkin pie but it has to be the light kind with lots of milk and eggs.

I think I may have posted this recipe  before, but just in case:

PUMPKIN PIE CAKE

1 yellow cake mix (I'm sure spice would be great, as well)
3/4 cup margarine or butter, softened
4 eggs
1 28 oz can pumpkin
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup nuts (I add a bit more)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Remove one cup of cake mix from box and set aside.  Combine remaining mix with 1/2 cup margarine or butter and one egg.  Mix well and pat into bottomof a greased 9 x 13" pan.

Mix pumpkin, milk, brown sugar and remaining eggs, 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon.  Spread over cake mixture.

Mix one cup of reserved cake mix with remaining sugar and margarine or butter and nuts.  Combine until crumbly, then sprinkle over top of pumpkin mixture.

Bake for one hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Ok, I may now be in trouble.  I like the Pumpkin Crunch that I have made for so very long but this sounds very good as well.  I just might have to make this tonight.  I am going to a recital and wanted to bring my friend and her family a treat and this just might be it!

In Response to love anything pumpkin : This is one that is very easy.  Will travel well and is part cake and part pumpkin pie.  In reality I like this much better than a pumpkin pie. Pies can sometimes have a soggy bottom...don't we all hate soggy bottoms?...This is almost like a cobbler with a pumpkin base. Pumpkin Pie Crunch 1 Can 14 ounces pumpkin puree..not the pie filling 2 eggs 1 1/2 Cups evaporated milk 1 1/3 Cup granulated sugar 1 Tb pumpkin pie spice 1/2 tsp salt 1 package cake mix..I like to use spice cake but yellow will be just fine 1 1/4 Cups chopped pecans 1 Cup butter, melted Pre heat oven to 350 13X9 pan, greased In a large mixing bowl, stir together pumpkin, eggs, milk, sugar, spice, and salt until smoothly blended. Pour into pan. Sprinkle dry cake mix over the top. Scatter nuts over the top of the cake mix Drizzle melted butter over the top getting as much as you can moistened. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until top is golden and cake is set. Cool for at least 1 hour in pan on a rack. Serve with whipped cream if you like.

The Pumpkin Pie Crunch came out of my oven this afternoon and finally got cool and solid enough for me to cut myself a piece (well, MOST of it will go to the church dinner tomorrow).
It's delicious - it's absolutely remarkable!!  I do not understand how this worked.   Oh, it's good and it's good looking.  I just can't wait to hear other's reactions. 
Thanks again, Nikki

This isn't a dessert but I just made some pumpkin pancakes tonight for dinner. Not a strong taste  but they were good...I was thinking that some nuts added to the pancake batter would be good  and some maple syrup on top.

Pumpkin Pancakes (original recipe from the Jan. 2007 edition of Better Homes & Gardens)

2 cups of all purpose flour

3 Tablespoons packed brown sugar

1 Tablespoon baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1  3/4 cup milk

3 eggs, slightly beaten

3/4 cup canned pumpkin

1/4 cup cooking oil, I used olive oil, extra light


1. In a large bowl combine flour and other dry ingredients. In a second bowl combine eggs and remaining ingredients. Stir milk mixture into flour mixture until slightly lumpy.

2. Heat  a lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet over medium heat. For each pancake pour 1 quarter cup batter onto griddle. Cook until golden; turn when tops are bubbly and edges are slightly dry (1-2 minutes perside for the small pancakes) I like to make larger pancakes, I like the challenge of flipping them in the pan. Then cook longer until done...

enjoy with some maple syrup ....I think adding pecans or any type of nuts would taste good  in them

The pineapple pancakes I make, taste better the second day so I am going to see if these do too.

Hey Nikki ---- Tonight, as usual, the dessert selection was tremendous -- so many choices.  We  always carry home 3/4 of the dessert we took.
Well ........ my/your Pumpkin Pie Crunch was gobbled except for one piece and the young man who worked on the fire, the tables and - everything - asked if he could have it.  When I said yes he snatched it and ran it to his truck.  He was so delighted and tickled.   I'm going to print the recipe for his mother.
Thanks again.

The price of nuts is really high.  I checked out both pecans and walnuts yesterday when I was shopping and they were $8.99 for a pound of walnuts and for 12 oz of pecans.  Good grief!

I use my mother's pumpkin pie recipe. It is called Pensylvania Pumpkin Pie and the eggs are separated, whites beaten and folded in at the end, just before pouring into the pie shell.  The recipe uses more milk and the filling comes out fluffy instead of the regular thick solid that most pumpkin pies have.

Judy - when I hear that the price of pecans was going to skyrocket I stocked up all I could.  I do have a LOT in my freezer but not enough for the holidays.   I wonder if this high price will be steady or it will continue to rise.
