Pumpkin Pie Cake

This is a recipe I grew up with. I've been craving this cake since late summer but finally got around to emailing my mimi/grandma to get the recipe. Now is a more appropriate time of year to bake it anyways. So here is my favorite pumpkin pie cake!

1 large can pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)                                   
6 eggs                                                      
1 c white sugar
1 1/2 c evaporated milk                             

1 c brown sugar
1 T pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger                                           

1/2 tsp nutmeg                                           
1/2 tsp cloves

- Mix all the above ingredients together in a large bowl until well blended. 
- Pour into a buttered/greased 13x9x2 pan or a Bundt pan.

1 pkg yellow cake mix
1 cube butter  

- Crumble together the dry cake mix and the cube of butter.
- Sprinkle over pumpkin mixture.  
- Bake at 350' for 1 hour. 
- If using the Bundt pan, check with wooden skewer and perhaps you might have to bake it a little longer. My bundt usually takes about 1hr 15-20mins.
