I made this for an office party and it got rave reviews. However, when I make it again for Christmas, I will cut the cake mix in half. The crumb top was so thick it had to be eaten upside down to get through it. Also, I will use unsalted butter. Instead of whipped topping, I melted a can of cream cheese frosting in the microwave and drizzled it over the finished cake. Yum.

WOW !!! I made this cake at Thanksgiving dinner at my in-laws and it was such a success I think this may be my staple contribution each year. I took someone's suggestion on toasting the pecans in butter before adding it to the cake and instead of margarine, I used unsalted butter (since one person said the cake was somewhat salty). Instead of using whipped cream - I made crumb cake crumbs and baked them on during the last 15 minutes of baking (to make crumbs: use 2 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 tsp vanilla, 2 tsp cinnamon 1 1/2 stick unsalted butter melted - I mixed them all together with my hands and put them on top of the pecan/pumpkin/cake mixture). The crumbs, buttery pecans, cake mix & pumpkin mixture was so unbelievable (although filling) everyone raved about it !!!! I think next year though I will cut back on the sugar and butter as it is such a sweet cake and rich cake having one sliver is almost too much to eat and there's no room for other desserts ! Thank you for this superb recipe !!! YUMMMM !

Awesome! Very nice fall dessert. I even adjusted it a bit and it was still marvelous. I decreased the sugar to 1 cup and decreased the butter to 1/2 cup. I mixed 1/3 cup of flaxseed meal into the cake mix to make up for the missing butter--a sneaky way to make up some much needed omega-3s. Everyone loved this dessert, even my 5 year old.
