Pumpkin Custard Dessert
Pumpkin Custard Dessert has a bottom layer of creamy pumpkin custard just like pumpkin pie. The top layer is a dry yellow cake mix that’s sprinkled over the top of the entire custard. It’s then sprinkled with melted butter and topped with pecans. The result is delicious! The top layer is crunchy while the bottom layer is smooth and creamy. What a fantastic contrast of texture this is! The yellow cake mix can be switched out for a spice cake or a butter pecan dry cake mix to give you more amazing flavor.
Instead of spooning the melted butter over the dry cake mix I used a plastic squirt bottle. You know the plastic containers you use to put ketsup and mustard in to use in the summer? I use those containers in my kitchen a lot for varies small jobs. I fill them with either olive oil or vegetable oil and keep one near the stove. It comes in very handy when you need a small amount of oil, you don’t have to open a big bottle and pour it into a pan. I also fill them with a simple powdered sugar glaze and decorate the tops of coffee cakes with them. In this case it worked like a charm to distribute the melted butter evenly over top of the dry cake mix. This dessert is so easy to make and it gives you outstanding results. It’s the perfect time of year for Pumpkin Custard Dessert, Enjoy!
