Just me and one piece of Pumpkin Pie Cake left. . .

It's the first day of autumn.  I'm always sad to see summer end because I love the long daylight hours, flowers blooming, green grass and trees full of green leaves.  On the other hand, there are two reasons I love fall:  wearing jeans every day and FOOD!  I've enjoyed the fresh veggies from my garden this summer, but fall means warm pots of soup and comforting desserts.  One of my favorite fall desserts is Pumpkin Pie Cake.  I don't really care much for pumpkin pie, but I can eat the whole pan of Pumpkin Pie Cake!  Here's the recipe:


3 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 can evaporated milk
1 16 oz. can of pumpkin
2 tsps. of sugar
1 yellow cake mix
2 sticks of margarine (I think butter works fine, but this is how the recipe reads)
Chopped pecans (about a cup)

Mix the eggs, sugar, evaporated milk and pumpkin.  Pour it into a ungreased 9 x 13 pan.  Sprinkle the yellow cake mix over the mixture.  Top with pecans.  Melt the two sticks of margarine and pour over the mixture.  Bake one hour in a 350 oven.  Serve warm with whipped cream.
