PUMPKIN PIE CAKE

I've had this recipe for a long time and it needs to be accessible and not lost. Try it once and you will bake it again.

Take one yellow cake mix, reserving one cup for the topping, mix the rest with 1/2 cup of melted butter and one beaten egg. Line the bottom and sides of a 13x9 inch pan with this mixture.

Mix together:
1 large can pumpkin (28 oz. size, approx.)
3 beaten eggs
3/4 cup of sugar
2/3 cup of evaporated milk
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of ginger
1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon of salt

Pour into crust-lined pan.

Cut 1/2 cup of butter into the 1 cup reserved cake mix and 1/4 cup of sugar. Sprinkle this on top of pumpkin mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for one hour and enjoy!! Reddi Whip or whipped cream is a nice addition.

Happy Halloween and/or Thanksgiving or TREAT Day to you and yours!
