1 tsp. salt

½ tsp. ground cloves
½ tsp. cinnamon
4 eggs
½ cup butter, melted (margarine can be used)
1-12 oz. can evaporated milk
1-29 oz. can pumpkin

Combine first five ingredients in a bowl.  Beat eggs slightly; stir in pumpkin.  Then stir in sugar mixture.  Gradually stir in milk.  Place in greased 9 x 13 pan.  Sprinkle half box of the dry cake  mix over top.  Pour melted utter over all.  Sprinkle with chopped nuts.  Serves 16

Pumpkin dessert #2
3 eggs
1-15 oz. can pumpkin
1 cup sugar
1-12 oz can evaporated milk
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. ginger
½ tsp. allspice (I used nutmeg instead)
1 box yellow cake mix
1 cup chopped nuts
¾ cup butter, melted
Mix eggs, pumpkin, sugar, milk and spices until smooth.  Pour into a greased 9 x 13 baking dish.  Sprinkle cake mix over top.  Sprinkle nuts over cake mix and drizzle with butter.  Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes.  Cool before serving. Serve with whipped cream.  Serves 14
Pumpkin #1 gives you more pumpkin so its really how much pumpkin you want to taste.  Both are super recipes.
Enjoy whichever one you decide to make.
