Ingredients

  • 1 yellow cake mix (reserve 1 cup)
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened (1-1/2 sticks)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 29-ounce can plain pumpkin purée(not pie filling)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter the bottom of a 9x13-inch pan or dish.
  2. Combine the cake mix (less the reserved 1 cup), 1 egg and 1 stick of the butter; mix well. Press mix evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  3. In a bowl, combine the pumpkin, 3 eggs, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, brown sugar, 1/2 cup of the white sugar and milk. Mix well, then pour in an even layer on top of the cake mix layer.
  4. Mix together the reserved 1 cup cake mix, 1/2 stick butter, 1/2 cup white sugar, and 1 cup pecans. Sprinkle mixture evenly over your pumpkin mixture.
  5. Bake for about an 1 hour, and test for doneness with a toothpick. If the toothpick does not come out clean, return cake to the oven for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.

  • This is good. Bumped it up a norch by sprinkling Heath bits on top before baking and serve with a drizzle of caramel syrup and whipped cream.

  • This cake was so delicious, I made it for a luncheon, and both women and men loved it. I loved the pumpkin layer that made the cake so moist, and was glad it did not call for evaporated milk (which I personally do not like). I used whole milk and after the cake was baked sprinkled cinnamon chips on top. It was a big hit!
