Mouthwatering Pumpkin Dump Cake


You have heard of dump cake before. It was a recipe that became popular in the ’80s by church cookbooks and potlucks. Basically, you dump in a few cans of fruit in a pan and cover it with cake mix and butter and bake it. This is the same idea, only the star of the dish is the pumpkin.
