Its Better Than Pumpkin Pie

Every time we have made this to take somewhere, people want the recipie. I thought I would post it on the internet so everyone could find it:

1 29oz can pumpkin
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla
1 12oz can evap milk
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp allspice
1-2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (optional)
1 box yellow cake mix (2 layer size)
1/2 cup-1 cup butter/margarine (salted)
1 cup-2 cups chopped pecans

Mix pumpkin, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, evap milk, and spices until smooth
Pour into 13×9 pan
Sprinkle dry cake mix evenly across the top and pat down (gently)
Melt butter and drizzle over the cake mix to lightly coat
Sprinkle pecans evenly across the buttered surface
Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes (or until lightly browned and set)
The pumpkin part on the bottom should be the consistency of pumpkin pie and the top layer should be a rich crust as the butter fused the pecans into the cake mix.
Let cool before serving and store in the fridge:)
