Bar Layer

  • 1 package yellow cake mix 1 cup of mix reserved
  • 0.5 cup butter melted
  • 1 large egg


  • 29 oz pumpkin pie filling
  • 2 large eggs

Crumble Topping

  • 1 cup reserved yellow cake mix
  • 0.25 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 0.25 cup butter melted


  • Ensure that 1 cup of the cake mix has been reserved for the top crumble layer. Preheat your oven to 350F.
  • Mix the rest of the cake mix with the 1/2 cup melted butter and a large egg.  Press this mixture evenly into the bottom of a casserole dish.  
  • Beat the pumpkin pie filling, 2 large eggs, and 2/3 cup of evaporated milk together.  Pour over the crust.
  • Combine the reserved cup of cake mix, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/4 cup of melted butter.  Crumble over the top of the pumpkin pie layer.
  • Bake at 350F for 45-50 minutes.  When it’s done a knife will come out clean when inserted into the center.


If using fresh pumpkin then add 2 1/2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Taste and adjust if necessary.
