Pumpkin Cake

So my friend Grant hates pumpkin bars I think his main beef with them is the fact that they should really be called pumpkin cake. So today my sister was given a recipe to make for enrichment this evening that was entitled pumpkin cake but was really more of a pumpkin bar. I couldn't wait to tell Grant and yes he did think it was frustrating that pumpkin cake and pumpkin bars could be so confused. Well the pumpkin cake Whitney made was pretty good but as always I decided to improve upon it and this is what I came up with.

Pumpkin Cake (Bars)

1 yellow cake mix
1/4 cup butter
1 egg
1 tsp cinnamon

1 15oz can pumpkin
1 15oz can evaporated milk
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Set oven at 350' and get out a 9" x 13" pan
Alright mix crust mixture, cake mix, cinnamon, butter and 1 egg. Save out 1/2 cup of the mixture and place the rest of it in the bottom of the pan, press into a crust. Now mix pumpkin, evaporated milk, sugar, salt, 2 eggs, and spices together. Pour pumpkin mixture over crust and bake for 35 minutes. Now sprinkle the cake mixture that you set aside and bake for another 15 minutes.
Let bars cool and call them cake to torture Grant.
