Sandra LeeSmith shared this with me. She said she made several to give away. Thank you, Sandra, for sharing this recipe!
Oops. I asked Sandra to share a photo of one of her cakes. But apparently after she mentioned the cake in Seekerville post comments on Monday, this was all that was left! We must've had some hungry Seekervillians!

1 large (29 oz) can pumpkin
1 yellow cake mix (use dry out of box about 1/2 of it for topping)
1 stick real butter (4 oz)
1 12 oz can evaporated milk
1 1/4 cups sugar (can use 1 cup if want less sweet)
Preheat oven to 425
Mix pumpkin, eggs, milk and sugar and pour in 9 x 13 inch cake pan
Bake at 425 for 15 minutes.Then lower one to 350 and bake 40 minutes.
Cool at least 30 minutes
Crumble on top 1/2 box of dry yellow cake mix.
Cut up butter stick in small pieces and put on top of cake mix
Sprinkle pecans on top
Bake at 350 for 10 minutes to melt topping (you can put on broil for 2-3 minutes if want brown top)
Enjoy warm with whip cream or cool whip.
This is yummy, attractive and easy.
