This is the 2nd year to make this. We love it!! As mentioned by rdooley65, I cut the calories by using fat free evap milk. I also use 1/2 box of cake mix. You really don't need so much mix. And yes, to Angel-Food on the 1st of Jan, you MUST used the pumpkin PIE FILLING!!

I will be making this with a sugar free came mix, sugar blend and fat free evaporated milk and 0 Cal butter spray, for Thanksgiving. Just a little healthier.

I think denbet thinks it is bitter because she didn't use Pumpkin Pie Mix. She probably used pumpkin only. I agree a whole box of cake mix is too much. This is one of the best Healthy Cooking recipes I've tried.

Tasty but a mess. Does not look like the picture. Followed directions exactly and bottom never solidified to cut into squares. It was like pudding. How does everyone get this out of the pan without everything falling apart?

I have made this twice and both times used only 1/2 of a butter cake mix and only 1/4 cup chopped pecans. I also used 1/2 stick of reduced fat butter instead of 2 sticks. The second time I used the butter spray which was not as good. Without the butter each piece is about 130 calories. I will definitely make this again and again.

This had no spices or anything to give it taste, all you tasted was the bitter pumpkin
