A Taste Away from Home: Pumpkin Crisp

Pumpkin Crisp
From the Church at Star City

1- 29 oz. can of pumpkin
1 cup evaporated milk
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
½ tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. allspice

Mix above ingredients together and pour into a sprayed 9×13 dish.

1 yellow cake mix (dry)
1 cup butter
1 cup chopped pecans

Sprinkle the dry yellow cake mix over the top of the pumpkin mixture. Melt 1 cup of butter and pour over the dry mix.  Sprinkle 1 cup of chopped pecans over melted butter. If you like, you can do a little extra.

Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees until golden. Serve with ice cream or a dallop of whip topping. It is extra pretty when cool whip is lightly sprinkled with cinnamon or nutmeg.


When the crisp is warm, there’s a slight pumpkin flavor, and ice cream goes wonderfully well with it. If you’d rather a pumpkin pie flavor, serve cold!

  1. this is one of our favorite family recipes. as we girls all began marrying and having children of our own, mom decided that baking that many pumpkin pies at thanksgiving was taking too much time that she would prefer to spend visiting with us all. (most of us came from out of town/state on thanksgiving to be together–this was our big family holiday.) mom came upon this recipe and started making it. we all loved it!!

    the only thing different is mom always used fresh sugar pumpkins that dad grew in his garden. i now grow them in my garden for the same purpose–holiday baking and pumpkin freezes well so i can have some at christmas too.

    this is such a wonderful dessert. i am sure your readers will enjoy it as much as i always have. (your timing is perfect as just today i transplanted my pumpkin seedlings from pots to ground, praying as i did so for the weather to cooperate and allow then a healthy growing period.)


  2. Yum! Thank you Star City Church and Sarah for sharing the recipe! I can’t wait to try it! Pumpkin is one of my favorite things to use in baking! =:D

    Blessings in Christ!

  4. First – I want to say that I have tried the bean burrito freezer recipe – thank you. I am new to finding titus2 – but it has been a great blessing to me – I read the back issues of Mom’s corner when time permits. I just finished reading the Nov.08, which is part 4 of Scripture Memory and Bible Copying – I wanted to comment on the mother’s email concerning remembering the scripture reference. I read once that a good way to help is to memorize the reference – verse – reference. In a way – the reference number before and after becomes – like handles on the verse(s). I find that it helps my daughter. I realize that this doesn’t necessarily have to do with the Pumpkin Crisp recipe – but thought it might be helpful and was unsure of how to send it in relation to the Mom’s corner. Thank you for the encouragement and wonderful suggestions.
