Sprinkle dry cake mix evenly over the pumpkin filling. Sprinkle pecans over the cake mix. Drizzle melted butter over all. Bake in the preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned. Allow to cool. Makes 1 - 9x13 inch pan (12 servings).
Note: There are different variations of this popular recipe. I think this is the easiest one to remember and to do. Serve cool with whipped cream. Make sure to sprinkle the butter over the cake mix evenly for the crunchiest topping.
