Several reviewers complain about the recipe being too sweet and/or too buttery as originally written. I've included the amounts I use, which I think are 'just right'. Also, since I usually don't have pumpkin pie spice in the house, I use 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, 1/4 tsp. cloves and 1/2 tsp. ginger instead. (Tip: Using 2/3 of the cake mix instead of half makes it easy to make 8 cupcakes with the remaining box since the mix calls for 3 eggs.)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Grease bottom of 13x9x2-inch pan.
  3. Combine pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar, pumpkin pie spice and salt in large bowl.
  4. Pour into pan.
  5. Sprinkle dry cake mix evenly over pumpkin mixture. Top with pecans.
  6. Drizzle with melted butter.
  7. Bake at 350°F for 50 to 55 minutes or until golden. (Check it early).
  8. Cool completely. Serve with whipped topping. Refrigerate leftovers.

An outstanding easy, delicious recipe that everyone loves!!! I have taken this to several parties and it is loved by everyone. It is a must that you bake it in a 9 x 13 pan and serve with whip cream
