I’m not sure how I happened to have this recipe. I found it in my recipe box, typed up on a white piece of paper. Something about it reminded me of other recipe and household tips my mom had given me when I first got married.

But, I have never known her to make this. So I’m assuming that a relative had handed it out during an exchange at a party or family reunion.

Regardless of how I came to have it, it’s delicious! The recipe was actually titled Pumpkin Crunch Cake, but I don’t find it to be very cake-like. So I’m calling it Pumpkin Pecan Crunch – to highlight the main ingredients and the experience. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
