I made this with gluten-free spice cake mix instead of yellow cake. It turned out very well. I would caution other bakers that it calls for 'pumpkin pie FILLING', which is not the same as canned pumpkin. If you get canned pumpkin, you will need to add sugar and milk for it to taste right. Pumpkin pie filling already has the sugar and milk in it. A single can is 3 cups, which is what this recipe calls for. I really loved the flavor but thought there was almost too much pumpkin filling- it made it difficult for them to hold together. I may try 2 cups next time and see how that works. Gluten-free baking tends to be more crumbly in general, so it's possible my bars didn't hold together well for that reason. I would definitely recommend the spice cake mix over the yellow cake mix- gives it a much more 'fall' kind of feeling.
