Mix together the pumpkin as per your own pumpkin pie recipe or use mine below..remember to DOUBLE the ingredients!! Make as if you were going to make 2 pumpkin pies .Pour the mixture into the greased 9 x 13 glass pan. Sprinkle the DRY cake mix evenly over the pumpkin. Use the whole package. Gently even out with a fork.
Pour the melted butter over the dry cake mix. It should be mostly covered. You might need a little more than a cup. It should not be too moist.
Sprinkle the cup of pecans over top of mixture. Poke the mixture with the fork in a few places to let the topping go into the pumpkin mixture a little. Don't mix.

Bake in 350 degree oven for close to an hour. If a knife tested in the centre of the cake comes out clean then it is cooked. Less is better than more.

Pumpkin Pie Filling (DOUBLE FOR A 9x 13 PAN)
2 c prepared cooked pumpkin...i used fresh but canned is ok too

"Mix together the pumpkin as per your own pumpkin pie recipe"...since I don't make pumpkin pies I have no idea what this means. Can you please tell me what to mix together for this?
