Better Than Pumpkin Dump Cake

This pumpkin dessert is so good that everyone will be begging for the recipe, just like I did when I first tried it.

Ingredients
  1. 1 yellow cake mix (reserve 1 cup)
  2. 3/4 cup butter, softened (1-1/2 sticks)
  3. 4 eggs
  4. 1 29-ounce can plain pumpkin purée(not pie filling)
  5. 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  6. 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  7. 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  8. 1 cup sugar, divided
  9. 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  10. 2/3 cup milk
  11. 1 cup chopped pecans
Direction
  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.
