  1. Here's my version. Pumpkin Crunch Cake Ingredients: 1 can (15 oz) pumpkin puree 1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk 3 large eggs 1 1/2 cups sugar 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 box yellow cake mix 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans (the original recipe called for 1/2 cup, but I think it needed more) 1 cup butter, melted Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease bottom of 9 x 13? pan. Mix pumpkin, milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Pour mixture into greased pan. Sprinkle dry cake mix over pumpkin mixture and top with pecans.

  2. Soooo yummy! These were really easy to make other than the time it takes to cook and bake it's a quick mix up desert. I didn't have margarine, I only had butter but that's the only thing I substituted.They had a great creamy pumpkin flavor, nice texture and easy cutting.They also had a nice balance of flavors, nothing overwhelmed the other. I know I'll make them again! Thanks for another great recipe to add to my household.
