Pumpkin Crisp/cake as some of us call it...

I have had a few requests for this recipe so here it is. My kids like pumpkin pie but not the crust. So I found this recipe years ago and they gobble it right up. It is now my husband's favorite. ENJOY!

Pumpkin Crisp

Crust
1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow/spice cake mix (reserve 1 cup for topping)
1 egg
1/2 cup butter, melted
Filling

1 (29 ounce) can pumpkin puree
2 eggs
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup white sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk

Topping
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Set aside 1 cup cake mix for the topping. Combine remaining cake mix, 1 egg, and melted butter or margarine. Pat into a 9x13 inch baking pan.

In a large bowl, mix pumpkin, 2 eggs, spices, 1/2 cup sugar, and milk. Pour pumpkin mixture over the cake mix crust.

In a small bowl, combine 1 cup cake mix and 3/4 cup sugar. Cut in 1/2 cup softened butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle mixture on top of pumpkin mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 55 minutes.

Would you believe I'm planning to make this for the weekend? It's a fall favorite at our house and an old recipe. I remember my Mom making it at home and I've been married 27 years!
