When Fall arrives, we go all out and make all things pumpkin.  Like this pumpkin dump cake.  Made with delicious fresh pie pumpkin, but you can also use canned pumpkin, whichever works best for you.

If you are using fresh pie pumpkin, it will have more texture than the pureed pumpkin from a can.

Make sure to check the cake to make sure a toothpick comes out of the center clean, or it may taste a bit like soft sugar cookies on top, unless you like that.

We serve this cake with whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream.
