In Response to Re: love anything pumpkin:
I think I may have posted this recipe before, but just in case: PUMPKIN PIE CAKE 1 yellow cake mix (I'm sure spice would be great, as well) 3/4 cup margarine or butter, softened 4 eggs 1 28 oz can pumpkin 2/3 cup milk 1/2 cup brown sugar 3/4 cup white sugar 2 tsp cinnamon 1/2 cup nuts (I add a bit more) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove one cup of cake mix from box and set aside. Combine remaining mix with 1/2 cup margarine or butter and one egg. Mix well and pat into bottomof a greased 9 x 13" pan. Mix pumpkin, milk, brown sugar and remaining eggs, 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon. Spread over cake mixture. Mix one cup of reserved cake mix with remaining sugar and margarine or butter and nuts. Combine until crumbly, then sprinkle over top of pumpkin mixture. Bake for one hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

I don't know if I did something wrong but the bottom of the cake was a bit soft. I expected a much denser base and firmer. I liked the center and I wish there was more of the crunchy topping.
I did use one of the insulated pans ("airbake" is the brand) and I have read some cookie recipes that suggest turning the temperature up 25 degrees when using an insulated pan I wonder if it is the same for a cake like this where the bottom is supposed to be a bit denser..
