Marieann's notes for this recipe:
This is a tiny bit more work then the regular dump cake, but well worth the effort.

Who wants some holiday comfort food? Me! Me! And this fits the bill to a tee! Sweet, nutty and amazingly moist, this recipe is ideal for your holiday table, bake sale or potluck.


Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease and Flour a 9x 13 pan.
In a large bowl whisk, pumpkin, milk, eggs, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Gently mix 1/2 of the cake mix into the pumpkin mixture. Pour the pumpkin mixture into the 9x13 pan.
Sprinkle the remaining cake mix and chopped nuts over the top[ of the pumpkin mixture. Then drizzle the melted butter over the top of the entire cake batter.
Bake in a 350F oven for 55 minutes. Check for nicely browned edges.
Cool a bit before serving, or serve completely cooled. Serve from the baking pan.
A scoop of ice cream with this is great.

This is actually my favorite Fall Cake to make. It's so easy to make for a Halloween, or Thanksgiving Dish.
