1 yellow cake mix
1 can of pumpkin (2 cup size)
1 can of Pet evaporated milk (2 cup size)
1 cup of sugar
½ teaspoon of salt
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 ½ sticks of melted margarine
2 cups of chopped pecans
In a large bowl, mix pumpkin, milk eggs, sugar, salt and cinnamon.
Pour in a 9 by 13 inch ungreased pan.
Sprinkle cake mix over this and put pecans over the top of this and drizzle melted margarine over the top of all.
Bake at 300 degrees for 40 or 50 minutes or until set in center.
I call it Pumpkin Surprise because it is a little like a cake and a little like a pie.
