Got this recipe from my sister-in-law a few years ago.  It's fast and tastes wonderful.  I make some whipped cream to go on top that's flavored with grade A amber maple syrup.  The maple, pecans, and pumpkin really complement each other.

Upside down Pumpkin Pie

1 29oz can of solid pack pumpkin

1 ¼ C. Sugar

2 t. Cinnamon

½ t. Ginger

1 t. Nutmeg

1 12oz can of evaporated milk

3 eggs – well beaten

Mix together well and pour into a 13X9” greased baking pan.

1 box yellow cake mix

1 C. Pecans

1 C. Melted Butter

Sprinkle dry yellow cake mix on top of pumpkin mixture.  Sprinkle top with nuts and melted butter.  Bake at 350 deg. for 1 hour.

I think I need to try this one, after my daughter-in-law goes home from Thanksgiving.  She is very alergic to pecans.  This way of making pumpkin pie will avoid the dry crust that I dislike anyway.  Thanks for sharing.

Hi Porkaholic - you can substitute just about any nut.  I've even experimented with ground almonds and substituted 1/4 C of Amaretto for 1/4 C of the evaporated milk.  It was outstanding. 

The recipe is fast and extremely easy.  I made this several times and people always ask for the recipe.

Saw this recipe the two days before thanksgiving and have to say it was a very good dessert. The wife does not like pumpkin pie and had 2 pieces of this. I took pics and will post them up later so people can see what ours turned out like.

Thanks for the great recipe.

I like it!  

My wife is not a fan of pumpkin pie, but I think this could work!

Kind of a version of "impossible pie".

If it tastes good, it is all good!
