Pumpkin Crumb Cake

I got this recipe years ago when I lived in Waco from a sweet friend who was a fabulous cook. It's an easy pumpkin recipe that is just perfect for this time of year!

1 can pumpkin (not pie filling)
1 1/2 cups milk
3 eggs
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 t cloves
1 t cinnamon
1 t vanilla
2 sticks butter
1 yellow cake mix

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix pumpkin, milk, eggs, sugar, spices, and vanilla together in large bowl. Spray a 9 x 13 inch pan with cooking spray. Pour into prepared pan. Sprinkle cake mix (dry) over the top of pumpkin mix. Drizzle melted butter over the top of the dry mix. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes.

TIP OF THE DAY: You can add 1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans to the top to add a nutty flavor!
