Is the batter suppose to be on the thick side? I used canned pumpkin. Not filling. My batter was thick so I added an egg. In oven now. Will post results.

I don't think so. I made this Sunday. It turned out wonderful. My 19 year old even enjoyed it. I just used the cake mix and the pumpkin. It was a little thick so I added an egg. I think the pumpkin in the Libby can was thicker than normal. I used crushed pecans on top instead of the Heath bits. The cake was gone by the following evening.
