Magic Pumpkin Buckle

This is sure to become your family's favorite pumpkin dessert. The crust mixture, which is actually poured in first, rises to the top during baking to form a rich topping. The bottom crust does not become soggy like with some pies.


12 servings

1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated (white) sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

3 cups cooked or canned pumpkin
1 cup evaporated milk

Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Pour butter into a 13 x 9-inch baking dish; set aside.
