Delicious Pumpkin Pie-Cake-type-thing!

I went over to my bubbee's (grandma) today to cook up some yummy stuff with her.

We decided to put a spin on the classic pumpkin pie, and bake a pumpkin pie-cake-type-thing instead!

Step 3: Mix The Wet Ingredients

Combine the pumpkin pie mix and eggs in the smaller bowl.

Try not to eat the pumpkin pie mix yet.... I know it's really hard to resist doing so, but attempt to hold back.

Step 4: Mix Everything Together!

Take the wet mix and slowly stir it into the dry mix.

You're going to get to a point where no more dry mix will join with the wet mix. In this case, add apple juice in small amounts until you have a cookie-dough-like consistency.

Step 5: Prepare The Tin!

Lightly oil the bottom of the tin/pan/cooking vessel.

Then, arrange graham crackers so that they line the bottom of the pan/tin/vessel. If you run into corners, just crush or chop up the graham crackers until they fit.

This is crucial to your survival, kind of like knowing anything that Velociraptors fear....

Anyhow, slowly try to pour the batter over the crackers. This will be difficult, because the batter is now super-sticky, and will move your crackers a lot.

Wait a couple of minutes for the batter to flatten out.

This is awesome. I'm happy to see that it isn't crammed with butter like Paula Dean does her goodies. I'm wondering if I can do this with mashed canned sweet potatoes?

Go for it! Cooking's always the best when you're trying new things!

I'd imagine that it should work, though =)

I guess this ends the pie-cake debate over which is better. I am definitely going to try it.

Great work. It would seem just as I want to make a new type of pumpkin pie one appears here! Brilliant and Kudos to your grandmother.

It really doesn't look that appetizing. Maybe you need to make these into pumpkin cake bars, or something.

Actually, it looks pretty darn appetizing.... it's probably just the lighting. It's super-tasty, probably one of the tastiest pastries I've ever made. Bars are a great idea!
looks good, funny title! (favorited)
