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

1/2 cup butter, softened
1.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.
2.In a large bowl, mix pumpkin, 2 eggs, spices, 1/2 cup sugar, and milk. Pour pumpkin mixture over the cake mix crust.
3.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.
4.Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 55 minutes.
This recipe came from allrecipes. I read some of the reviews before I made it but missed the ones where they spoke of the topping. I made the topping, it was not a crumble. It was a gooey mixture that I could not crumble on top. Others had the same problem. I would skip the topping and let the bars cool and add whipped cream to the top! It would be just like a pumpkin pie!
