How to Make Pumpkin Crisp

Begin by gathering everything that you will need. You will need your pumpkin crisp ingredients: yellow cake mix, pumpkin puree, oats, butter, sugar, vanilla, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon. You will also need a  9 x 13 baking dish lightly covered in non-stick spray.

Next, you will mix the ingredients to form the crisp’s crust and press the crust into the bottom of the pan.

Then, you will combine the next group of ingredients to make the pumpkin layer and spread it on top of the crust in the pan.

Finally, you will make the topping and sprinkle it on top.

Bake for 35-40 and it will be ready to be enjoyed — although you will want to give it a bit to cool down before digging in.

Top with ice cream or whipped cream, if desired. But truth be told, this pumpkin crisp is so good you can enjoy it on its own instead.

Either way, you are going to love it!

  1. For the last almost 20 yrs this is what my family has been having at Thanksgiving instead of pumpkin pie. My recipe is similar. My family usually requests this instead of the pie.

  2. This is currently in my oven baking. I have gone over the recipe a few times to find the oven temperature. Can you help me out? My oven is at 350.

    1. Oh my, I really goofed! So sorry about that – it should be baked at 325. I just updated the post and hope that it didn’t mess you up too much! Again, my apologies!

  3. I love pumpkin but I have never thought of making pumpkin crisp. Now I can’t wait to try this recipe.

  4. This looks and sounds like such a good recipe! Definitely pinning.. probably will test out next week. 😉

  5. Do you think you could use spice cake in place of the yellow cake? Or would it be too much with the spices in the pumpkin mixture?
