Love this! I have a suggestion, though. Based on another cook's recommendation, I cut the sugar in half. (Actually used Splenda.) Next time, I'll leave the sugar out completely. It does NOT need it. It's plenty sweet without. Trust me.

I love this recipe. We make it at least once a year. Makes a ton though, so better when there's a crowd around to eat it.

This turned out very nicely. I did add some brown sugar sprinkled on top to kind of carmelize the pecans. It turned out very nice thank you for posting this yummy alternative to pumpkin pie.

This is a fabulous recipe. I took it to work to give to my customers but the staff wouldn't let it leave the break room.It's kind of like a pumpkin pie with a crunch. I did add 1/2 tsp of nutmeg too.

Didn't work for me....cake mix stayed dry and crumbly after the hour baking.

Wow, this is great! I wanted another dessert for Thanksgiving and this was a great alternative to pumpkin pie! And it is so easy to make too.....my 5-year-old helped me and had a blast! The only change I made was that I also used a can of pumpkin pie mix and left out the other spices instead of just pumpkin puree. I would give it more stars if I could! Thanks for posting!

My whole family loves this recipe. Our grandmother made this recipe way back in the 90's, got it from church and called it "Pumpkin Pudding". The only difference on her recipe was it only used 2 eggs instead of 3. My family loves it more than any of the other Thanksgiving desserts, hands down. You gotta try it!!!!

I needed a quick dessert for an after Thanksgiving dinner, and picked this one. Thank Goodness! It's wonderful! I didn't have plain canned pumpkin so I used a can of Pumpkn Pie Mix. Fantastic! I will be making this often during the fall and winter months. It's so easy and so good! Thank you for posting!

It was okay. Kind of odd. The top did a carmelized crispy brown sugar thing. My brother called it "Pumpkin Pie Upside Down." I don't think I'd make it again. It's been sitting in the fridge since Saturday (it's Tuesday) and desserts NEVER last this long in my house.
