Bobby’s Lighter Pumpkin Crunch
461 Fewer Calories
47g Less Fat
1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
1 (12-ounce) can fat-free evaporated milk
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 eggs whites
1 large egg
1 (16-ounce) package sugar-free yellow cake mix
1/2 cup chopped pecans
4 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.
Whisk the pumpkin puree, evaporated milk, sugar, and cinnamon in a large bowl until well mixed. Add the egg whites and egg, whisking until well blended.
Scrape the batter into the baking dish. Sprinkle the cake mix evenly over the batter to cover completely. Scatter the nuts and butter pieces over top.
Bake, uncovered, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, 45 – 50 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

TEST KITCHEN TIP:
Even though Aunt Trina serves her pumpkin crunch with cream cheese frosting, our lighter version is so good we didn’t miss it. If you want to indulge, serve with a small scoop of sugar-free butter pecan ice cream or a little reduced-fat non-dairy whipped topping sprinkled with a little cinnamon.

I have learned something new. It has been quite a while since I have been to a baby shower, and I am now prepared and up-to-date. I love the term "sprinkles" and it is nice to know that men are also invited to partake in the excitement! Thank you for a fun article!

Susan Lott is a great party planner! She has tons of great ideas that she needs to share with the online world. I have been begging her to start a Facebook page or Etsy account. The graduation gift that she made me was hand drawn with my name and different definitions for each letter. She framed it and I cherish it.....I also would have paid about $50 for it in a store. Thanks for sharing her idea but this idea is nothing compared to some of her other quick and money saving tips! You should hire her for your creative team!
Love you Susu!
