This was a pretty good recipe, but I tweaked it a bit. As suggested by another reviewer, I used pumpkin pie filling instead of pumpkin puree. I used 3 eggs, 1/4 cup of evap milk, and omitted the sugar. As I was using a spring form pan, I felt this would need a crust of some sort, so I mixed the box of cake mix with 1/3 cup melted butter. I then used half this mixture to create a crust, which I baked blind at 350F for about 10 minutes, until it began to brown. I then added the pumpkin mixture, and over this the remaining cake/butter mixture. I left the pecans out until the last 20 minutes of baking to prevent them from burning. I baked the cake for 80 minutes at 350. Note: if you use a spring form pan, with the bottom crust as I did, I suggest placing a foil lined baking sheet underneath it during baking. Some melted butter melted out of the seam of my pan, and could have been a messy cleanup if I didn't have the baking sheet there. The finished cake was served with vanilla ice cream. I will be making this again. Good recipe!
