I made this recipe for the first time and was a little disappointed in the results. I followed the directions as given in the recipe. It was just too sweet for my taste.

Everytime I pull up this recipe it only shows me three ingredients. What are the last 2 ingredients. I would like to make this sometime. Thanks.

I agree that the pumpkin mixture needs a dash of salt. I used a spice cake mix.

A nice change of pace from pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving. The cake mix makes it super simple to make.

I have made this recipe several times. Foolproof, guest approved. It even made last years Thanksgiving table.

Really good recipe! The pumpkin mixture needs about a 1/2 tsp salt-- the amt you would find in a typical pumpkin pie recipe.

I didn't like this recipe. The flavor was good, but the texture just did not seem right. It was too soft. It had a texture like flan. It made me feel as if I was eating something under cooked. I Did Check It With A Knife In A Few Places And It Came Out Clean Each Time.

What an easy and great dessert idea. This was delicious and oh so easy. The only thing I did different was instead of nuts on the top, I had leftover pecan sandie cookie crumbs from the cheesecake I had just made, and sprinkled those on top instead of nuts. Will definitely make this again. Can't stop eating it!

While this tasted pretty good, the bottom pumpkin part was very gooey and separated from the top part of the cake mixture. Would love to know the possible reason for that happening! If I could get it to come out of the pan without the pumpkin being so sloppy it would be perfect!
