Pumpkin Cake
Thanks to Alyssa R., Prince Edward Island

1 package yellow cake mix (reserve 1 c. dry for topping)
½ cup melted margarine or butter
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom of a 9×13 pan. Stir together crust ingredients, and spread in 9×13 pan.

1 – 13 oz. can pumpkin
2/3 cup milk
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. ginger
¼ tsp. cloves
¼ tsp. salt

Mix filling ingredients, and pour over unbaked crust.

1 cup dry cake mix
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup margarine or butter (firm)
1 tsp. cinnamon

Crumble together, and sprinkle over filling.

Bake for 45 minutes or until knife inserted comes out dry. Enjoy!


Maxwell Notes: If you want a coffee cake flavor, with only a slight hint of pumpkin, eat warm. If you want a real pumpkin dessert flavor, eat cold 🙂 .

A Taste Away from Home: Ham Delights

Ham Delights
the M Family, Virginia

Yields: Approximately 50 small Ham Delights

½ stick melted butter
¼ teaspoon mustard (yellow)
¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
½ teaspoon poppy seed
½ cup mayonnaise
1 small, finely chopped onion
1/3 pound shredded Swiss cheese
1 pound shredded ham (Can be shredded in a food processer)
About 50 small rolls (homemade or storebought)

Mix all the ingredients together. Cut open the rolls and spread the ham mixture inside. If you’re going to eat the ham delights right away, place them on a baking sheet and put them in 350 degree oven till they’re warmed through. If you aren’t going to eat them right away, wrap them (the roll with mixture) in foil, and put them in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use them, then put them in the oven. Enjoy!
